The Solidarity FabLabs Challenge
FabLab Fundación Tecnología Social - Madrid
The project falls in line with the Young Social Makers program, presented in 2015 by FUNTESO with our support. The purpose of Young Social Makers is to create prototypes of devices to improve the living conditions of various people. Wheelchair prototypes have been produced, for instance. The project, Making for our Citizens, has two objectives : to go from the prototype to the actual device, and build a network. The Making for our Citizens network brings individuals with specific needs into contact with young people in the city who produce the device in question.
The idea is also make the project sustainable and raise as much awareness as possible by making the workshops open to all.
