Place: Room 1
Working Group: Fab City Bootcamp // How To Make It Happen In Your City *** Goals ***
Kickstarted at FAB7 in Lima by Tomas Diez (Fab Lab Barcelona | IAAC), and now being prototyped in Barcelona, the Fab City project has been providing an overall framework for a long-term transition towardslocally productive and globally connected cities. The initial pledge started in Barcelona at FAB10 with the commitment of the city to produce everything it consumes by 2054, has inspired others to make this transition happen, in an unique collaboration between bottom-up movements and top-down governments and institutions, in cities like: Paris, Amsterdam, Boston, Shenzhen, Santiago, Detroit or the Kingdom of Bhutan. But how does this appealing vision translate in your local context ? How can you bring together the local community while onboarding the municipality and companies ? How should you organize and where should you start ?
Based on 18 months of experience from the Fab City Paris team, now established a local nonprofit gathering 25 member organizations, this workshop aims to give ideas and practical first steps to get the Fab City process started in your city.
