One month ago, we announced the launch of our international Solidarity FabLabs challenge #Imake4MyCity. The theme for this year is “sustainable development in everyday life”. Our challenge is aimed at young people in difficulty that we are training in digital manufacturing free-of-charge at our 73 Solidarity FabLabs. Today, we are delighted to present the teams taking part in this big adventure!
They must all develop a project that shows what they can do and sets them on the path to employment or studies.
