How do we cultivate a resilient and responsive distributed design community?

From August 23rd to October 17th Fab Lab Barcelona is hosting a weekly online chat series, where guests share their personal experiences of responding to moments of crisis. The aim is to collaboratively work on a shared vision, align values, and develop best practices.

Andrew Lamb will join us on September 27th from 12:00 – 13:00. Andrew is the Global Innovation Lead at international humanitarian relief organization Field Ready, Chair of the Internet of Production Alliance and Director of Massive Small Manufacturing Ltd. Andrew has previously worked on sustainability and sustainable development issues as Chief Executive of Engineers Without Borders UK and as a consultant to UNESCO, the World Bank and the global bodies for the engineering profession. His work now is all about enabling distributed local manufacturing and the benefits that this can bring. He lives in London, UK, and loves Lego.

The Resilient Makers Stories will be facilitated by Jean Luc Pierite, as part of the MDEF Residency Program. They are part of the European project Reservist that aims to establish a network of ‘reservist cells’, resilient networks that can be activated within 48hrs to switch to manufacturing medical products and services that are spiking in demand. Reservist has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program under grant agreement No. 101016041.
