Foundation for Transitioning to Sustainable Life in Harmony with Nature 

Permaturk Foundation is an NGO, established in Istanbul Turkey, which aims to demonstrate that, through education, experienced support and hands-on examples based on teachings of nature, it is possible to shift/return to a sustainable way of living.

Although we live in a world with limited natural resources, humankind continues to increase in numbers and deplete these resources. According to scientists, this is not sustainable.  Nature is responding to our actions with changes in natural balances and cycles.  


We are at a crucial juncture.

In order to leave a livable world to future generations, we must urgently take part in and contribute to beneficial projects that will better both nature and human well-being.
