The 4th Solidarity FabLabs challenge!

The bus redesigned

Garagelab - Llindar, Cornellà de Llobregat  -  Spain

Around one hundred youngsters aged 15 to 21 who are no longer in mainstream schooling turned a bus into a source of information and guidance that will tour Barcelona in search of young people. The FabLab's electrical, electronic and digital technology enabled the manual labour, creativity, digital manufacturing and conversion of recycled materials needed to complete the project. The interior and exterior designs for the new bus were developed and produced in the same spirit of exchange.

Vote for the third Solidarity FabLab challenge!

Since 2015, we have offered free training in our Solidarity FabLabs to young people leading difficult lives. In the FabLabs they learn digital manufacturing, teamwork and perhaps a future trade. Our international challenge is aimed at them. It allows them to use our FabLabs to develop a project from A to Z and show everything they are capable of doing today. This year, it is all about using digital technology to devise and produce creations for the worlds of fashion, design and the arts.
