In 2019 Plymouth successfully applied to join the global Fab City network, a group of 34 cities worldwide committed to producing nearly everything they consume by 2054.
Plymouth is the first UK city to do so. While COVID-19 delayed Fab City Plymouth over 2020, it also did something else more important; it underlined the importance of local self-sufficiency, mutual aid and innovation – this is what Fab City is all about. COVID also shone a light on and highlighted the key challenges of our age – inequalities and the ever-looming environmental breakdown and climate disaster.
This meeting is an informal chance to come together to find out more about the initiative. Join communities from across the city to find out more about Fab Cities and help shape what this can mean for Plymouth.
Fab City Plymouth is supported by founding partners Plymouth Culture, Plymouth College of Art, Plymouth City Council, Plymouth University and the Real Ideas Organisation, with kind support from Power to Change.
This event will take place in person at The Market Hall
