Your plant has something to say to you...

Lisungi Fablab  -  Democratic Republic of the Congo

Our “Smart Polisa” project is an intelligent box which reminds people that their plants need to be watered by sending them messages. More generally, the project is about raising awareness of issues relating to the preservation of our planet’s environment, in which plants play a major part as they produce the oxygen we breathe. Some of the young people in this FabLab are not in education because of economic reasons or because of the wars of the past few years.

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.
