45 Vyner Street, London, E2 9DQ United Kingdom
Interest in the social, economic and environmental possibilities of makerspaces and the maker movement continues to grow. This event brings together people involved or interested in sustainability activities to share, discuss, and reflect upon their experiences.
In the discussions, our objective will be to consider strategies for promoting and reinforcing the roles makerspaces can and could play in sustainable developments, including extending connections with opportunities in wider society and economy.
