What’s Fab City’s purpose?
The world is facing an unprecedented systemic crisis: climate change, biodiversity loss, land and ecosystem degradation, social exclusion, and a systemic crisis on materials, energy, and food. There is a clear, urgent, and underestimated need to redesign everything around us, especially how we manufacture, distribute and consume goods and services.
It outlines Fab City's vision by explaining how we plan to build a new socioeconomic model based on local manufacturing infrastructure and globally distributed data. It also explains our mission: PITO to DIDO, a model that shifts how localities source and use materials from ´Products In - Trash Out´ (PITO) to ´Data In - Data Out´ (DIDO).
