What principles and ethics guide Fab City’s work?

The context

A fair and equitable transition towards a circular, regenerative, resilient, and socially inclusive economy and global system needs to be based on solid values, shared by a global community. The Fab City Manifesto was drafted with the collaboration of Fab City Global Initiative members during the 2018 Fab City Summit in Paris.

The goal

The Manifesto presents the ten values and principles that the Fab City Global Initiative commits to implement in order to enable the urban transition towards locally productive and globally connected cities.
