Since 2014 our distributed community has been dedicated to a long-term vision to make cities produce (almost) everything they consume by 2054. We are organised to have maximum impact on social inequality, environmental regeneration, digital innovation, and cultural heritage at the local and global level to ultimately contribute to the aims of the Global Green New Deal.
Our Network of cities and regions brings urgent attention to the resources, community engagement, and political action needed to achieve the challenge locally, and they collaborate and share knowledge globally. Our Collective is dedicated to innovative responses in academia, business, and policy, they give their time and effort to steward our 40-year roadmap and strategic agenda. At our heart is the Fab Lab Network, a globally distributed network of domestic-scale fabrication laboratories founded by researchers at MIT in Boston, that provide access to the tools and knowledge to ‘make anything’.
This provides a distributed infrastructure and global community that is the foundation for the Fab City Full Stack approach – a multi-scale approach for long-term urban transformation.
