After "Fab Lab Life Cycle" workshops on setting-up and running a fablab at four FAB-conferences and Fab Lab Safety Game sessions during two, it is time for the next level: the Sustainable Fab Lab Goals.* Countries of the world agreed on 17 Sustainable Development Goals to be completed by all in 2030. Fab labs of the world could use them as a global framework to identify where we could make a difference. This helps clarify our potential impact on local, regional or global scale. It helps us to align our social activities and makes our labs and the whole more sustainable itself as well. Where sustainable development goals and sustainable fab lab goals coincide, new opportunities for structural cooperation and sustainable funding emerge. Come and join us in this bilingual workshop! * Fab Lab Life Cycle and Fab Lab Safety Game documentation is free to download via http://bit.ly/fablabonline. Results of the new workshop will follow.

Facilitators: Pieter van der Hijden (The Netherlands / Suriname) with Enrico Bassi (Italy), Vaneza Caycho Ñuflo (Peru), Neville Govender (South Africa), Yogesh Kulkarni (India), Wendy Neale (New Zealand)
