Mainau Akademie

"Systemic sustainability as a regenerative balance between technical, economic and natural principles."
Mainau principle

Inspired by the “Green Charter of Mainau” and its initiator, Count Lennart Bernadotte, Countess Sonja devoted herself to advanced training in the field of nature and the environment for more than 30 years.
The park, gardens and philosophy of Mainau are a platform for nature education, a healthy way of life and garden culture.
Count Björn Bernadotte took up this commitment and, after completing his degree in social pedagogy, opened a new business field for advanced training at the Mainau Academy.
The Mainau Akademie eV association, as the sponsor, pursues the mental, emotional and physical health of the population as its top priority.
The special purpose of the association is to awaken and further develop ecological and preventive health skills, environmental awareness and enthusiasm for experiencing nature in children, young people and adults.
Another focus of the Mainau Academy eV is to create, secure and convey the balance between technology, economy and nature, as well as natural behavioral patterns, which in turn leads to an improvement in public health and thus promotes academic performance and economic efficiency.
Special emphasis is placed on the five main focuses of the Mainau Academy (health / prevention, communication / leadership, education, social commitment, garden / nature) according to the principle of systemic sustainability, or as Count Björn aptly formulated it according to the "Mainau principle" to convey.

Mainau Island shows solidarity on the Day of the World's Indigenous People
With the symbolic watering of a yellow oleander as a sign of the climate partnership between the city of Konstanz and the Borari people, Countess Bettina Bernadotte, together with Mayor Uli Burchardt and the ProAmazonia association, celebrated the International Day of the World's Indigenous People on August 9 at an event in the palm house on the island of Mainau.
According to the United Nations, around 370 million people are counted among indigenous peoples worldwide. Their livelihoods are threatened by the increasing depletion of natural resources (legal and illegal), the consequences of climate change and the lack of recognition of their rights. Every year on August 9th the UN Day of Indigenous People draws attention to this. Another threat this year is the corona pandemic: indigenous associations have stated that more than 10,000 indigenous people are infected with the corona virus and that mortality in this group is almost twice as high as in the rest of the population.
On the initiative of the ProAmazonia Konstanz association, the Day of Indigenous People was officially celebrated in Konstanz for the first time on Sunday: In the Palm House on the island of Mainau, managing director countess Bettina Bernadotte and the Mayor of Konstanz, Uli Burchardt, jointly poured water to a yellow oleander, which from then on symbolizes the between between the city of Konstanz and the Brazilian Borari people. The plant originally comes from Peru, but is now native to the entire tropical region of South America and is considered a medicinal plant in the Amazon region. The framework of the event was provided by keynote speeches that provided information about the devastating situation of the rainforest and its indigenous population as well as aid projects.
“As a company that cares about sustainability and environmental protection, we are happy to support the ProAmazonia association in its valuable and important work, because indigenous people, especially in the Amazon, are the best guardians of the rainforests, their biodiversity and their important role for us World climate. Indigenous people worldwide deserve more attention and support, they maintain traditions and important cultures", explained countess Bettina Bernadotte.

A quarter of a century of partner branches: The cooperation between Deutsche Post and retailers turns 25
The partner branches that went online in 1995 will celebrate their 25th anniversary in 2020. Among them is the very special branch on the island of Mainau in Lake Constance. It's not just its location in the middle of the idyllic flower island that makes it so special, it also has exceptional opening times: "In order to be as economical as possible and to be able to offer a seven-day service, the partner branch was integrated into the souvenir shop", explains countess Bettina Bernadotte, managing director of Mainau GmbH. Visitors to the island can do their postal business there seven days a week from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. "This means that the branch is open 365 days a year, which is a real record", says Björn Graf Bernadotte, who, like his sister, is the managing director of Mainau GmbH.

The husband of the late Marta Catherina Nilert (nee Bernadotte) was also married to Ebba Wachtmeister (1937-2006). Geni reports that they had two children. Anyone know their names?

Yesterday, today and tomorrow at the Island of Mainau:

Mainau-Musical-Open-Air: Mamma Mia meets Udo Jürgens (at the castle meadow)
Come with Sabine Mayer, Karim Khawatmi and Katharina Gorgi on a merry cruise through the incomparable world of songs by Udo Jürgens from the musical "I've never been to New York". Sing and dance with classics like "But please with cream" or "Greek wine". The classic hits of the cult band ABBA are also captivatingly beautiful: In the second part of the Mainau Musical Open Air there is the good mood music from the world success "Mamma Mia" in German. With songs like "Dancing Queen", "The Winner takes it all" and of course "Mamma Mia" nobody will be sitting down for long.
The original main actors from the current musical productions will stand live for you together with the 10-man band from musicalpeople and perform the unforgettable melodies in front of a dreamlike island backdrop.
Mainau-Musical-Open-Air_ Mamma Mia meets Udo Jürgens - Insel Mainau

Only 500 instead of 1200 visitors per performance. A bill that only works if all three evenings of the musical open air on the island of Mainau are sold out. The Corona conditions do not allow more spectators to attend "Mamma Mia meets Udo Jürgens". The artists therefore come to meet the organizer in order to finally be able to be on stage again.

Count Björn Bernadotte and countess Bettina Bernadotte's husband Philipp Haug attended Symposium “Energy Systems in Transition - Opportunities for the Region” on the Mainau on 24th and 25th September.

The two-day conference "Energy Systems in Transition - Opportunities for the Region" this year focused on "Energy Policy and Society in Times of Climate Change" and "Environmental Psychology as a Adjustment Screw for Greater Acceptance" and "Current Energy Trends in Our Region". The focus was on practical examples of the energy transition that are worth emulating. The symposium was aimed at all interested persons, in particular at representatives of municipalities, nature conservation associations and multipliers from the energy and housing industry from the Lake Constance region and the surrounding area.
In his welcome address, Björn Graf Bernadotte, Managing Director of Mainau GmbH, emphasized the importance of energy policy today: “Around a third of CO2 emissions arise from the generation of energy and heat. That is why it is extremely important to show best practice examples that motivate people to imitate them: Because the local actors in the municipalities are the ones who implement the energy transition”, and Philipp Haug, the ecological advisor on the island of Mainau, added: “We should become aware of how big the adjustment screw is that we can turn. This year, Mainau adopted its first energy and climate protection concept, with the declared goal that the entire energy supply will be climate-neutral by 2030 ”.

Count Björn's and countess Bettina's greeting at the website of Mainau
"usually Mainau Island does not go into hibernation, but is open for visitors all year round. But everything is different this year: In order to curb the number of Covid-19 infections, further restrictions have been introduced by the federal and state governments. Therefore, Mainau Island will remain completely closed for the time being. Nevertheless, we are busy working behind the scenes and preparing the upcoming flower year for you."
Greetings - Insel Mainau _ EN
