About the event:
In 2019 we held the Designaton for the first time in our FabLab in Drongen. There were 9 participants thinking about and creating solutions for problems like food waste and climate change.
This team thought about a different way of living. Separating the animals from the people to keep the animals safe. They also changed the school system, you start on the lowest level of the building and move up as you get older.
Water filtering system
This team developed a water filtering system with different filters that will collect dirt and garbage, ranging from big to small particles. Marine life will also be deflected so that no harm comes to them.
The team developed a new version of a city, one that is more in balance with nature, using natural resources like rain. They want to collect as much as possible of e.g. rain on waisted locations.
