On September 12th and 13th SOS – School of Sustainability will transform Piazza dell’Unità in Bologna into an urban laboratory for the transition to the Circular Economy.
“To change the world we have to re-imagine the cities of the future: starting from a point, locally, to trigger a chain reaction”, we repeated during the lockdown. Well then, KABOOM!
A group of young designers from SOS School of Sustainability will involve the community in a public event demonstrating how to generate new value starting from the cheapest and most invasive material: plastic. Citizens will bring their own plastic and discover its history, evolution, and best practices for a more efficient and creative management, witnessing one of the most innovative processes: 3D printing.
Short movies and dialogues between protagonists of the city and the territory will help to question ourselves what relationship we want to build between people, the economy and the environment. High school students will participate in workshops that will stimulate their ability to imagine themselves as future actors of change .
A detailed program will be available soon, stay tuned!
Conceived and edited by SOS – School of Sustainability and Mario Cucinella Architects, KABOOM is sponsored by the Municipality of Bologna, Quartiere Navile, with the technical support of WASP, a leading company in the world of 3D printing, of Bologna Fiere Servizi, r3direct, Fondazione Innovazione Urbana, SCART, BackBo.
The symbol of the two days will be an installation, made with recycled objects, that hosts a Delta WASP 3MT Industrial 4.0 3D printer, whose message will be to show how the “take-make-dispose” model can evolve with the transition to the “reduce-reuse –recycle” concept.
