The Fronterra Foundation for Cultural and Sustainable Social Development is a non-profit organization, with its statutory seat in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Fronterra is a network of volunteers, with no employees. Fronterra collaborates with local and international partners in the area of transformational change, team building, inter-ethnic dialogue, eco-tourism and lean start-up design.
Fronterra was founded by Raul Lansink and Mark Blaisse. Raul is activist, consultant and entrepreneur in the area of change management, community building and social innovation. Mark is journalist, consultant and publisher. Both are staunch believers in the European project and its underlying values.
Our volunteers or ‘Fronteristas’ perform activities in diverse areas such as field research, program design, event management, coaching, mediation, recruitment, fundraising and communications. Volunteers collaborate either on a specific local project, a research assignment or a general function.
