Update: This topic was granted ‚Solution’. It shares below in comment 13 a well made document outlining how to make circular economy principles and ideas a key driver in the set up of a community driven local fabrication space. It is on a conceptual meta level but because of it’s density and clarity a great benchmark resource for everyone that want’s to set up such a space.
We are an open community and an Open Biomimicry FabLab based in Rennes, France. We are Biomers and we rock our lab called le Biome.
We have the conviction to transition territories and economies through sharing knowledge and expertise.
We found that like us, many are faced with problems accessing facilities because they are expensive and rarely open source.
We decided to equip ourselves as much as possible in an open source, DIY way.
Obviously we reuse waste, but we attach great importance to eco design, economy of functionality and especially the re enrichment of the biosphere.
By developing open source solutions together, we will provide a response to a problem greater than ourselves.
So, we have decided to design a great week for Open Source Circular Economy Days with call to action, with workshops, design, hackathons, prototyping, keynotes Etc
Our goal: animate, rock our city and solve this challenge "How to equip a citizen open lab with the circular economy?"
