The Nyam Food Collection Bike - Solidarity FabLab Garage Lab El Lindar

The 5th Solidarity FabLabs challenge!

The Nyam Food Collection Bike

Solidarity FabLab Garage Lab El Lindar   

Fourteen young people not in education, aged 15-21, invented and built this concept vehicle using the tools at the Solidarity FabLab. The aim was to find a sustainable solution to put an end to hunger in urban environments. The idea of a vehicle making its way around towns or cities has three aims: raising awareness of food waste, giving a 2nd chance to food by collecting it from restaurants, supermarkets, etc., and finally, delivering it to charitable organizations and their service users. The use of FabLab tools helped to develop skills among the young people when making the bike, the storage accessories and the communication tools.

Vote for the third Solidarity FabLab challenge!

We have provided free training to young people seeking to enter the world of work since 2014 in our Solidarity FabLabs. There they learn digital manufacturing, teamwork and perhaps even 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, the challenge is to create digital objects that address new agricultural and food issues. A theme that directly addresses one of the UN Sustainable Development Goals: "End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture."
