218 Sustainable Fab Lab Goals / Objetivos de Fab Labs Sostenibles' (bilingual)
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)

Strategies for Resilience in the FabLab Network
23B1 Auditorio 3B This workshop series will help you to make your fab lab more inclusive and comfortable for everyone. We work with many different kinds of people every day within the local fab lab and the virtual fab lab – with refugees and migrants, people from a variety of cultures, ages, genders and sexual orientation. These experiential workshop series will help you promote a culturally safer environment for your whole fab community. These workshops are designed to increase participant’s knowledge of traumatic stress, its possible impact on children, adults, and project based learning. This training has been created in collaboration with Wendy Neale from FabLab WGTN, Jean Luc Pierite from Fab Foundation, and Victor Jose Santana from VJS Consulting. The workshop will explore tools and frameworks that participants can apply to their fab lab programs, activities and or communities.

Fab Lab Management Best Practices
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

Managing a Fab Lab is a lot of work. Every lab develops its own practices and many repeat the same mistakes. As Fab Labs are scaling from 1,000 to 1,000,000 in the coming years it is crucial to learn from each other so that this movement has a lasting effect on society.
We want to share know-how and exchange best practices of running a Fab Lab. Furthermore, we present Fabman, a cloud-based tool we developed at Happylab to reduce the work load on lab managers and increase safety.
See how the system works and get access to the cloud. For the workshop, we will work together with Jens Dyvik and show how to integrate his self-built Open Source machine into Fabman.
