Produce locally, network globally
A city can produce (almost) everything it consumes itself: That is the vision of a “Fabrication City”, or Fab City for short! This can be achieved with a consistent circular economy, new production processes from openly accessible machines, a new digital infrastructure for the city and comprehensive participation by the city’s inhabitants. In 2019, Hamburg became the first German city to decide to become a Fab City - together with 52 other cities, regions and countries worldwide, such as Boston, Augsburg, Barcelona, Paris and Bhutan.More about us
