Metabolic Foundation is Metabolic's non-profit arm dedicated to building capacity in disadvantaged urban communities by increasing access to tools, knowledge, and resources.
Experience has taught us that providing people the means and the training to make changes in their own lives and communities is the most effective and fulfilling pathway. We focus our efforts on establishing maker spaces inside urban communities and helping community groups in all areas of the world do the same. We're also developing solutions that enable local groups to configure and install decentralized water, energy, and sanitation services. To learn more about Metabolic Foundation, visit our website.
