The Fab City Foundation

The Fab City Foundation supports the global initiative through the development of projects and educational programs that are focused on building the capacity of cities and their communities. Based in e-Estonia, the Foundation is location independent and supports distributed programs and projects the world over.


The Fab City Foundation develops and supports programs to advance the global Fab City agenda. We work with leaders from cities, municipalities, businesses and international institutions to develop unique implementation projects, pilots and strategic planning.

Our prototyping approach unfolds a design-centred process through the identification of global trends, analysis and mapping of local impacts and opportunities, and the real-world co-design and piloting of situated solutions. We work closely with our partners, but never in silo, as every project feeds our Network’s global commons. The Fab City Foundation welcomes and reviews all requests for collaboration that aligns with our manifesto and strategic action plan. We are currently particularly interested in unfolding projects in the southern hemisphere.
