The Fab City Roadmap to 2054 Saga

The Fab City Roadmap to 2054 Saga

A revival of the highlights of the Fab City Global Initiative.

The Roadmap saga is a Fab City tale that unfolds in 4 chapters, one for each step of our roadmap to 2054.
Looking to the future sometimes requires a dip into the past.
And that is precisely the purpose of the saga: to travel back in time to relive the milestones that brought us here.

Why is it important for us to involve you in our story?

We want to share our salient moments because if we didn’t, we wouldn’t be living up to our Mission of global dissemination of data and knowledge.

We understand the Saga as the unfolding of our work from 2011 to 2023, a small step toward sharing an experience that can also be useful for other stakeholders with a similar mindset and ambition to ours. 

Enjoy your reading!
