The WasteLab

Semi-Finalist

Imagine one of Madrid’s vacant buildings converted into a playground for experimentation by and for young people. A space with vertical gardens, a kitchen hackerspace and coworking areas, where everyone is inspired to look at waste as a resource to re-purpose rather than discard. Imagine a space that prompts unusual combinations which transform food and tech waste into delicious feasts and ingenious products. The Madrid WasteLab aims to ignite such a ‘waste economy’ where the youth paves the way and is stimulated by inspiring mentors, ways of working and Grassroots Innovation Movements.
