FABO X DESIGNERS

Join the SDG Design Group of Fablab O and design new disruptive innovations.

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), otherwise known as the Global Goals, are a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity.

Fablab O is part of the International Fablab SDG Working Group, an initiative that coordinates all the fablabs around the world actively working on the SDG and focusing their activities on the targets.

Research Topic

  • SDG Goal 3: Good health and Well Being
  • Target 3.3: Fight communicable diseases
  • Target 3.D: Impove early warning systems for global health risks

The topic choosen is closely related to the recent COVID-2019 outbreak but can be extended to many other subjects and other SDG goals can be brought in as well.

Contents and Objectives

  • Acquire proficiency in the main fabrication techniques, design software, electronic producgion and coding through dedicated exercises and open sessions.
  • Use design thinking to research, ideate and prototype a group contribution to the solution of the SDG Target proposed.
  • Take decisions and layout a plan to conduct an industry-level project with the help of mentors and professionals.
  • Experience true team work and problem solving with design thinking. Each member of the team will contribute with own skills and more experienced members will be group leaders.
