Mirador, the French word for 'watch-tower'. The name of my house, high in the Swiss Alps. Around Mirador the story of life in miniature forms. Mountains show the history of planet earth. Retreating glaciers mirror climate change. Human-animal conflict, existing everywhere, translated in juicy grass that is meant for cows to give good milk and meat, and not for deer.
Mirador Foundation is the watch-tower that observes life. From there we observe how and where to channel a contribution to increase the quality of life. Not only for people, but for all who share our planet. 'Development' is a key word. Development of knowledge and skills, personality, views and attitude to life. But also conservation and restoration of nature and the relation between people and nature are a major focus.
