“Greening roofs in Tunisia”

El Fab Space   -  Tunisia

How to reduce CO2 emissions and boost the circular economy? How about a bio-digestor paired with generators, which transforms organic waste into biogas, which produces heat and electricity, and nutrient-rich organic fertilizer to grow plants on city roofs! The more plants on roofs, the more electricity for central heating and fresh produce to eat at home - that’s the threefold effect of the “green roofs” project!

In our Solidarity FabLabs, we offer free training to young people facing difficulties in their lives. They learn about digital production, team-work and maybe even lay the foundations of a future career. Our international challenge is aimed at them. It offers them the opportunity to work on a project from beginning to end and to showcase their skills and abilities. This year, the challenge involves using digital technologies to imagine sustainable development solutions which fit into our everyday lives.
