Fab city Amsterdam

FabCity Amsterdam

On May 26th I went for a seminar at FabCity. FabCity is a temporary and freely accessible campus open between 1 April until 26 June at the head of Amsterdam’s Java Island in the city’s Eastern Harbour District. Conceived as a green, self-sustaining city, FabCity comprises of approximately 50 innovative pavilions, installations and prototypes.

The idea of sustainable homes and gardens was interesting and it was worth a visit. While I was there I also heard updates on some city wide initiatives in the area of sustainable living in Amsterdam from River of Herbs and Natuur je beste Buur on how local people can get involved in projects around the city.
