Everyone who has supported Ubatuba Emergency Fund. Individuals and organizations that believe in –and take ownership of– our purpose.
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.
