We want to make “El 20” a better place to live in
Through our interdisciplinary teams of students and their expert mentors, we bring in knowledge from a variety of fields, but we have a golden rule: decisions are made by the community.
Our ideas must always be validated by the people of El 20. We use collaborative design methods to bridge knowledge acquired from formal education and their traditional Mayan wisdom.
After seven years, we believe we have created project ideas which can potentially enable the people of El 20 to sustain their culture and their environment; but also to achieve security in terms of health and economy.
All of our conceived projects are multidimensional, simultaneously tackling more than one of their main challenges. There are also elements that are shared by two projects or more.
