An overview of issues faced by the city can be seen in this short video documenting a research project undertaken in 2015-2017:
As a great proportion of Ubatuba's economy relies on tourism, the city was severely impacted by COVID-19. The Ubatuba Emergency Fund was set up to attract direct investment in nonprofits looking into social-environmental issues and providing aid for local communities. Decisions about where to direct the funds raised will be made democratically by a committee composed of members of these organisations.
Who is organising the fund?
My name is Felipe Fonseca. Before moving to Europe in 2019 to pursue a PhD, I have lived in Ubatuba for 11 years. During that time I have organised four editions of a festival, was part of a research project on Open Science, hosted a radio show, founded a co-working space, was a member of the advisory board on cultural policy and was involved with many other projects.
I'm setting up this collective in my spare time on a pure volunteer basis - meaning I will not get any share of whatever money is raised.
