Fab City Hub launches at Green Lab

Green Lab are excited to announce the opening of a Fab City Hub in London.

The Fab City initiative is leading and enabling a shift away from the industrial paradigm of Product-in Trash-out in the context of urban environments, specifically how cities tend to function. The intiative is driven by a need to enable the return of manufacture to cities supported by a locally productive citizens developing and creating products for local needs, producing food, materials and energy locally; minimising waste and generate a greater sense of self worth and awareness of sustainable circular systems.

Green Lab hosted the a launch event and open workshop on the 28th November 2019 with over 40 participants from diverse backgrounds working collectively to try to answer three key questions relevant to development of Fab City London.

  • Who is critical for the development of Fab City London and why?
  • What are the stakeholders agendas in relation to Fab City London?
  • What assets/resources do we/they have access to?
