Clean, Recycle, Save. Make ecology

Auray, France

France is a rich country in hydraulic, geothermic and solar energy. So how can these resources be positively put to use to answer direct needs of the inhabitants?

We want to boost projects with strong environmental and maritime potential. Raise everyone’s awareness of the great network of innovation and sharing. My precious plastic, and other low tech, car, boat and surf open source, wind turbine, sonar drone to map the seabed … Today every Fablab near the Atlantics is concerned with the Ocean environment, because of their proximity to the sea. That’s why we invite you in Auray for a giant workshop with mini-conferences anddiscovery of the west coast of France.

Biomimétisme + Bio Hacking

Biomimicry is about mimic innovation from nature to solve societal matters.
Biomimicry is a learning process, based and staked out within experimentation and prototyping, questioning ethic, promising an ecology and sustainable ways. Working design, working biology, working code, working architecture, are only a side-effect. We need to learn and share knowledge, practices and documentations. For these conditions, we need a free and open source system.
After 5 years, from Austin to our dear brittany, after organizing 1st Free Open Source Biomimicry Camp In E.U, we lanched last year a programm to tackle human resilient and ecology by the way of hacking and prototyping in order to collaborate on global change, climate warming, biodiversity falling.
