Profit with Non-Profit:
SUENJHAID! was founded in 2002 by Dr. Henri Michael von Blanquet.
After his first visit in 1990 on the North Frisian Sailors Island Foehr he was directly excited about the intergenerational history and the egalitarian and simultaneously elitist effect of the historic „Foehr Captain Schools“, stimulated by intensive private evenings with the founder of the Ferring Foundation, Dr. Frederik Paulsen senior, in his house on the Island of Foehr. Dr. von Blanquet decided in 2002 to establish SUENJHAID! and to start the active transfer of the non-for-profit principle of precisely these historic Foehr Navigation Schools of the 16th – 18th century on the field of Health Sciences so that the first symposium on the Island of Foehr could take place in 2003:
„The future starts with respecting the historical roots, with sustainability and the combination of „profit with non-profit“ as a cross-generational model. Only what is at the start a longterm generationally non-for-profit initiative will be sustainable and valuable“ (Dr. Henri M. von Blanquet on Ascension Day 2003 in his opening speech of the 1st SUENJHAID! Symposium on Foehr.
Since then he sees himself as a medical doctor in the tradition of the school of the Hippocrates on the Island Cos committed to SUENJHAID! as a „Club of Cos“, together with a growing number of allies and partners, the goal is to built an International Leadership Academy of Health Sciences on the Island of Foehr for the subsequent generations of leaders in Health Sciences to come. In addition, he personally aims at the longterm transfer of SUENJHAID! towards a international non-profit foundation as a sustainable and independent institution without self-interests.
Dr. von Blanquet has been living in Berlin since 2012 together with his life partner, the artist Sunna Bohlen (www.sunnab.com) from California. In line with the traditional Berlin salon culture, „Micha & Sunna“ open their Living Gallery in „Mitte“ not only for Health Capiters, Health Trustees and Health Entrepreneurs to combine „Profit with Non-Profit“. Blanquet is the father of two children for whom he is also taking the challenge of building „SUENJHAID! to RUENJHAID!“ as an orientation- an value-based leadership-platform for our upcoming next generations.
