Maker Faire Rome 4 Sustainability

Innovation and sustainability are often perceived as competing strategies within companies. Research indicates that many corporations view them as either-or alternatives, often sidelining innovation in favor of sustainability.

The truth, however, is just the opposite. Innovation is essential to be able to address challenges such as climate change, social inequality, and relentless resource depletion. It is the driver behind the development of new technologies, practices, and solutions that can achieve these results while also satisfying economic objectives. Achieving long-term sustainability goals without innovation is unimaginable.

In the world of makers, however, there is growing evidence of this virtuous alliance between innovation and sustainability. Projects exhibiting at Maker Faire Rome – whether if from Academia, research centers or makers – prove it, loud and clear.

Maker Faire 4 Sustainability

A sustainable society is made up of many ingredients: inclusion, technology, health, research, rights, clean energy. Education, awareness and the exchange between generations of innovators represent the enabling elements.

Maker Faire 4 Sustainability is a concept that wants to convey a new idea of sustainability: from environmental to social, to correct lifestyles and a proper cultural approach, through innovation, to affirm an integrated vision of the different dimensions of development.

The mission of Maker Faire 4 Sustainability is to bring together the builders of today’s future to give hope and tools to those of tomorrow. We aim to continue stimulating active dialogue between the different realities working for a sustainable future, encouraging the sharing of ideas and collaboration across sectors.


We imagine a world where innovation and sustainability are integrated into everyone’s daily life. A world in which people, communities and organizations collaborate to create a prosperous future that respects the environment, human rights and social justice.


The mission of Maker Faire 4 Sustainability is to act as a catalyst for positive change, offering a dynamic space where innovators, activists and citizens can connect, learn and collaborate. We want to inspire, educate and provide the necessary tools to build a more sustainable, fair and prosperous tomorrow.
