This platform enables those who have no voice to talk about the future, be listened to, share experiences and knowledge and learn from each other.
The Fabricants de Futur collective originated in the Integral Revolution that emerged in Catalunya around 2008, seeking a new ways to create a self-managed public system, via the generation of social alternatives oriented towards more humane, inclusive and sustainable local economies. The collective functions on the principles of "autogestion", operating a horizontal structure and collective self-management, without dependence on financial or other sponsorship by external bodies.
