Circular economy concepts are giving new hope to our planet which is littered with post-consumer waste – all manner of plastics, PET bottles, textiles and countless other materials which are the byproducts of excessive consumption.
Deko Eko wants to contribute to this significant change by accelerating the development of a circular economy marketplace. We propose an innovative upcycling platform which will completely change the way you think about waste. We turn waste into profit by facilitating the highest possible jump in value – from zero to a market-ready product.
Our climate is changing at an extraordinary rate. While this is plainly visible in our glacier landscapes, we also rely on aerial and digital technologies to see the full extent of changes across larger scales and timeframes.
This project aims to adapt these technologies creatively to communicate the science behind our changing climate in more compelling ways.
We're helping food growers build better soil and adopt sustainable growing practices, while working together to gather soil moisture data from around Europe, to help society adapt to extreme climate events.
Our vision of Green Fablab (or Hackerspace, or Makespace) is that in these geographically distributed spaces, they can be considered not only as a fabrication spaces, but also a recycling, remanufacturing and refurbishing places in order to contribute to a more circular economy
The project aims to create a social infrastructure, the Waste Fab Lab, to be implemented in the urban context. It will be a place where new jobs will be created in order to manage, repair, prepare for
We are fans of the Precious Plastic project, one of the key examples on how cities could start to reclaim the waste humans put in their streets, but more importantly: in the nature that then feed us…

The Center for the Living Things is the research pata-institution founded in 2016, in order to examine, collect and popularise the knowledge concerning new humanotic nature forms. All exhibits gathered in the Institute’s collection are abandoned objects, used and no longer needed commodities – wastes of human overproduction, which have become the natural environment for many living organisms. Specimens were found in illegal waste dumping site, where the transgression of man-derived objects and plant tissues take place.
Free Geek’s mission is to sustainably reuse technology, enable digital access, and provide education to create a community that empowers people to realize their potential.
As cities, the closest democratic institutions to the people, we are committed to eliminating impediments to harnessing technological opportunities that improve the lives of our constituents, and to providing trustworthy and secure digital services and infrastructures that support our communities. We strongly believe that human rights principles such as privacy, freedom of expression, and democracy must be incorporated by design into digital platforms starting with locally-controlled digital infrastructures and services.
Over the course of five days, local workshops, research centers, design agencies and local producers in the neighbourhood was connected into an ecosystem. Biologists, tech professionals, local makers, craftsmen, IKEA designers, and other trailblazers gathered in Barcelona for the project and collected wasted products from the streets of Poblenou in order to breath new life into materials that were heading to landfill.
