Build Yourself. Build Your World.

June 1 - August 31, 2020 - Kansas City, USA

We created a summer program where you will learn more hands-on skills – across more diverse areas – than you would in a lifetime. Did you ever want to design or build something – but did not know where to start? To address the need for practical skills and agency in today's digital world - we created a unique experience that will shatter your limitation. You will learn to build 3D printers, CNC machines, tractors, houses, aquaponic systems – and much more. More Info

Build Yourself. Build Your World.

March 14-14, 2020 - New Zealand - Boston - Seattle - Richmond

Did you ever want to design or build something, but did not know where to start? We created a program – so you will never have this problem again. In our 4-day Open Source Microfactory STEAM Camp, you’ll learn how to build a 3D printer and other production machines, you will learn the basic principles of design, and you’ll be able to turn your ideas into prototypes, so you can turn your prototypes into a business.

Open Source Ecology is accelerating the growth of the next economy - the Open Source Economy - an economy that optimizes both production and distribution - while promoting environmental regeneration and social justice. We are building the Global Village Construction Set. This is a high-performance, modular, do-it-yourself, low-cost platform - that allows for the easy fabrication of the 50 different industrial machines that it takes - to build a small, sustainable civilization with modern comforts.

Civilization Starter Kit - v0.01

Open Source Ecology - DVD - Cover - v0.01 - 05.jpg

The Civilization Starter Kit currently contains all the training materials you need to build 4 out of 50 Global Village Construction Set machines (Beta v0.01). Join our global network of independent replicators creating a sustainable, open source economy.
