A challenge won by young people looking to get into work

For 4 years, our international digital manufacturing challenge has been aimed at young people getting back into work and receiving free training at our Solidarity FabLabs, and who decide to tackle a challenge as a team.

It is a chance for them to highlight their digital achievements and show the whole world what they have learned at the FabLab, even though they dropped out of school or have no formal qualifications! This year, they come from 7 countries in Africa and Europe: Cameroon, Spain, France, Poland, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Senegal and Tunisia.

During this edition, with the theme “Art Makers”, the teams devised and created an artistic item using at least one digital tool or machine at the FabLab. An excellent opportunity to show how creativity combined with digital can produce innovative, cultural and collective results.



A challenge for all!

This individual and group challenge allows disadvantaged young people to demonstrate their skills in digital and catch the eye of businesses.
But in addition to the world of work, any internet user can learn more about the teams and projects by watching a video and offering their encouragement.
