Imagine the "Sharing City !"
WoeLAB "First African Democraty Technology Space" will be the host of Global Urban Datafest in Lomé. Two days event to explore the "HubCité" utopia and focus on creating a #LowHighTech urban concept by architects, designers, makers, data analysts, programmers and urban
issue experts... Several teams build around themes such as living environment, urban agriculture, waste management, governance, economy etc. will confront original ideas and projects for the deployment of "Lomé African HubCity" program...
HubCity initiative is a model of an alternative and inclusive
urbanization. The aim is to help humble populations in
the reconquest of the power to transform their living environment and
their life thanks the development of #LowHighTech technologies. The way to do it is the establishment of CAMPS and the installation of local LABS like WoeLab who gave birth to the W.Afate (first « made in Africa » and with e-waste 3Dprinter). Value 1: Transparency.
The initiative HubCity and all the projects resulting are recycling the
hacker Ethic and the ‘open-source’ concern. Value 2: Inclusion. The
philosophy of the project is to mix the potential and the local know-how
with the hight technology that we try to convert to the context. A High
attention is given to the local dynamics.)
