We'd planned to return to San Jose, Costa Rica in 2020 to tackle new challenges around water quality and public space, but had to postpone due to COVID-19 travel restrictions. So, we did what we do best - we rethought it. We put out a challenge to the 2020 interns as well as our alumni: Come up with a proposal, pitch it to us, and we'll help get it over the finish line. So far, we're excited to see proposals from all over the world rolling in, and look forward to announcing an all-new FUNdaMENTAL Design Build project within the next few weeks, so keep a lookout.
FUNdaMENTAL is a volunteer internship, we've been fortunate to have enough support to host students free of charge each year. But, we recognize not everyone can participate in a volunteer internship, so we'd like to level the playing field for those who have the passion and vision to join the project but just need the financial support. Our goal this year is to raise an additional $10,000 - enough to cover travel and per diem expenses for 3 students
