AGS actively supports Fab City global initiative and, locally from our HQ, Fab City Curitiba until we shift the way we produce and consume in cities. The current rapid urbanization presents a grand challenge as well a system-changing opportunity.

In 2014, the then mayor of Barcelona challenged cities to produce everything they consume by 2054. Fab City Global Initiative is enabling this shift away from the industrial paradigm of Product-in Trash-out, by enabling the return of manufacture to cities supported by a Data-in Data-out urban model. It comprises a Network of 34 cities, a core Collective and is governed by a foundation. We are working to make locally productive, globally connected cities and citizens.
