About the project Edit

MoviLab – since it develops sustainable in vivo lifestyle incubator devices close to people in their territories. It is engineering research – do it, fix it – with prototyping and proof-of-concept models, identifying areas of regional and industrial policy to support scaling up.

The idea is to support citizen links, community life, public housing, campuses, digital spaces, learning communities, etc. and give them the tools and training in free / collaborative practices in a way that neighbouring populations can come learn by practicing to change their lifestyles, own tools, exchange knowledge, recipes, items, test collaborative consumption, etc. In short, a wonderful mix between free and sustainable, FabLab, citizen action, hackers and professional amateurs, exchanging knowledge, collaborative models with the idea to build confident and networks through practice and to scale up by sharing knowledge and a learning device (interpretation and writing source code by the team).


In what ways is this project unique and creative? Edit

It puts into practice the combination of free and sustainable by supporting the kind of social innovation that we see in third places, FabLabs, coworking, collaborative models (online and in everyday life with collaborative consumption), all by giving them a goal that is changing towards sustainable lifestyles through practice and by example.

The approach is transversal and open by applying just as well to campuses or big schools instead of third places, citizen connections, community life, ESS, cultural spaces, research labs and the like.

It is unique because it focuses on changing the scale by converting to sustainable lifestyles by proposing a link between the innumerable initiatives that come from the locally through use and the overall by nurturing and developing areas in industrial and territorial policy.

What is the social value of this project? Edit

Putting into practice sustainable lifestyles through the processes of free / open source, collaborative consumption, sharing of knowledge, all close to and in connection with citizens, third places and other free and sustainable players to build social capital.

What is the potential of this project to expand and develop? Edit

Limitless. Like Web 2.0 and collaborative consumption, it is dependent on faith, fun, free and sustainable networks. Initially, it could be developed in all territories with a bottom up approach.

What was the triggering factor of this project? Edit

Les Territoires Intelligents et Communautés Apprenantes (TICA) (or smart territories and learning communities):

    Dispositif d'incubateurs de modes de vie durables "in vivo", libre / open. MoviLab, car il s'agit de mettre en place un dispositif d'incubateurs de modes de vie durables in vivo, en proximité des gens, dans les territoires. Il s'agit d'une recherche ingénierique ("do it, fix it"), avec le prototypage et la preuve de concept des modèles, l'identification d'axes de politique territoriale et industrielle pour en accompagner le passage à l'échelle.
