FOUNDER & PATRONAGE
SÜNJHAID! was founded in 2002 by the Medical Doctor Henri Michael von Blanquet on Föhr Island at the West-Coast of the North Sea in the World Heritage of the Walden Sea.
After having been on Föhr Island again and again since 1990 in contact with the intergenerational history and the egalitarian and at the same time elitist effect of the “Föhrer Captain Schools”, stimulated by intensive personal discussions with an Islander Orientation Personality, chose Dr. von Blanquet 2002 to found SÜNJHAID! and revive the active transfer of the non-for-profit principle of precisely these historical Föhrer Leadership Schools from the 16th to 18th Century towards the Health Industry, so that the first symposium could take place on Föhr Island in 2003:
“The future needs the past, sustainability and the mix of profit with non-profit as a cross-generational model. Only what is unselfishly organized across generations is sustainable and valuable ”(Dr. H.M. v. Blanquet Ascension Day 2003 for the opening of the 1st SÜNJHAID! Symposium and Think-Tank on Föhr Island).
Since then he has been together with his Health Captain colleagues a doctor in the sense of the school of Hippocrates of Cos wich makes SÜNJHAID! to be a “Club of Cos” with a growing number of allies and partners, to achieve the goal of setting up an International Leadership Academy for Medicine and Health Sciences on Föhr Island for future generations of Leaders in Health Sciences and in the Health Industry. In addition, he personally strives for the long-term transfer of SÜNJHAID! as its own foundation in a non-profit foundation as a sustainable and independent institution without self-interest.
