What do you think about the idea of a First Global Makers Island?

Why an island?

Because islands are cool.

Why makers?

Because makers are cool as well – but also – they are creative individuals as a part of the makers culture, where technology is used to DIY (Do It Yourself) new devices as well as tinkering with the existing ones.

Where in the world did this idea come from?

  • Motivation for maker residency came from our friends in Green Lab Valldaura, near Barcelona. Their motto “Live, Design and Fabricate a Real-scale, Self-sufficient Prototype in Valldaura” motivated us to think about models for real problems we face on islands in Croatia. Therefore, “Adriatic Greenlab” initiative is established.
