Green Fablab


What is Fablab? How does it operate?
How sustainable is it?
What can we learn from it? 


Fablabs is short for Fabrication Laboratories.  They  are collaborative spaces equipped with various tools and machines. 

The concept was theorised in 2004 by Neil Gershenfeld, director of the Centre for Bits and Atoms, at MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology). 

Always in expansion everywhere in the world, there are currently more than 2,500 fablabs across 125 countries.
They allow everyone, whether they already know how or not, to create just about anything they can imagine.

Fablabs embody the principles of open access and collaboration. Everybody can open a fablab without constraint, except the one on the international charter.
A Fablab is a user-centric initiative which means it is designed to be an inclusive space where people from diverse backgrounds can come together to learn, experiment, and innovate.
