FAB15- ElGouna, Egypt
This year, Fab15 took place in two cities in Egypt, ElGouna by the Red Sea and Cairo.
The main conference took place in ElGouna from July 28th till August 2nd. The graduation ceremony was held on the August 1st in ElGouna. Then, we headed back to Cairo on the afternoon of August 2nd. The fab festival, fab lab tours, and closing ceremony took place in Cairo on August 3rd and 4th.
Fab15 offered the chance to explore the diversity of the Egyptian culture and Egypt's magnificent splendor. Many visited some of the most historic sites, and enjoyed some of the world's most famous beaches and tried the local rich cuisine.
In its 15th round, and under the title “Collectively Independent” Fab15 built strategic alliances to promote the inclusion of marginalized groups, and the transfer of knowledge and best practices that empower communities to solve their own problems.
We looked at how we can enable each other as a community of individual makers, Fab labs and cities around the world to become the catalysts of our own lives by innovating.
