The Maker Mile (www.makermile.cc) was mapped by Machines Room a FabLab just down the canal on Vyner Street; a cobbled cul de sac filled with wharfs and warehouses home to taxi mechanics, sign printers, and London’s oldest umbrella maker. Instigated by Clear Village and with support from Human Cities, Maker Mile launched during London Design Festival 2015 with Open Mile. For one night 12 spaces opened their workshops and the public could get involved with hands on making and behind the scenes tours of workspaces. Over 600 people collected a map, made locally at East London Print Makers, followed the trail on a rainy Monday night and experienced the thriving community, that many, including those already working there, hadn’t realised was on their doorstep.
Fab City Prototype: TOMORROW
After giving the group a general perspective on the spaces and people that are currently shaping the prototype, participants were invited to work on three particular subjects that are key to designing a roadmap for the future of the neighbourhood:
Fabrication & materials: with complementary production ecosystems happening inside the local network of Fab Labs, citizens have the possibility to produce what they consume, recirculating materials inside the neighbourhood and the city to reduce waste and carbon emissions associated with long-distance mass production and distribution chains.
Food production: growing food on the rooftops of Barcelona. Through urban agriculture practices, citizens can grow part of what they eat turning production of local clean food in a regular pat of their lives.
Energy: Renewable energy production. With the arrival of domestic batteries and the cost drop of solar technologies, citizens have the tools to produce part of their domestic energy consumption.
This Handbook is a practical resource from the Fab City Global Initiative. It aims to be a useful guide for information, tools and other types of materials that can support you and your city to become a locally productive and globally connected city by 2054.
Com isso se muda a perspectiva de processo, que não deve ter como prioridade apenas os conteúdos. A perspectiva é o CONTEXTO (sujeitos, sociedade onde vivem ) CONCEITO ( qual a ideia que o problema traz) e finalmente o CONTEÚDO ( a ferramenta que será usada na resolução do problema), e chagamos ao conhecimento e a uma aprendizagem significativa. Um dos exemplos para ilustrar é na matemática, o aprendizado da regra de três para crianças de 12 anos. A regra de três é a ferramenta, a técnica, o conteúdo: Se a/b = c/d então a.d = b.c. Qual o CONCEITO que dá origem a esta regra? É um dos conceitos mais importantes para o ensino de matemática, estatística, física, química, entre outras: o conceito de Proporção. Mas onde este conceito surge e onde faz sentido? Qual o CONTEXTO onde ele aparece? E qual o Contexto que faz sentido e desperte a curiosidade para crianças de 12 anos? %, densidade populacional, estatísticas sobre assuntos diversos, etc.

Stocksy United is a platform co-op where businesses, consumers, and graphic designers can find beautiful and compelling stock content to license for usage in design, presentations, ads, etc. The artists are paid a relatively high percentage of the royalties generated by each image sale: 50% on standard licenses and 75% on extended licenses. On top of that, in the event of year-end company surplus, Stocksy shares this surplus with its artists in the form of patronage.
