What: Launch of Aquapioneers Crowdfunding Campaign
Where:  Fab Lab Barcelona @ IaaC
When: Wednesday 7 June, 6.30pm — 8.30pm.

Next Wednesday 7th June the Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia (IAAC) opens its doors to host the launch of Aquapioneers Crowdfunding Campaign, an invention supported by IAAC | FabLab Barcelona and Valldaura Labs to show the potential of self-sustaining aquaponic ecosystem to create an elegant indoor oasis able to supply citizens with herbs and spices all-year round.

Aquapioneers is an open source project born at the Green Fab Lab, from a combination of Guillaume Teyssié’s open source aquaponic project during the FabAcademy 2016 and Loic Legoueff’s master thesis in Aquaponics at Universidad Autonoma de Barcelona.

To help them launch their production in Barcelona, without compromising the Open Source nature of the project, on 7th of June at IAAC they will launch a Crowdfunding campaign. For the occasion, they will organized a Vietnamese cooking workshop using the first crops of the Aquapioneers kits.

About Aquapioneers

Guillaume Teyssié and Loic Legoueff are the founders of Aquapioneers, an initiative that will contribute to the growing urban farming movement in Barcelona. They envision a future where Barcelona’s citizens obtain most of their food from local farmers, from their rooftops, and from inside their own homes.

They are committed to change the future of food, and they are proud to start with the Aquapioneers Ecosystem. This cultivation technique is called Aquaponics and reduces water consumption by up to 90{9109d278f27679b0d72ba26d1dbf285952fc93361903e26181bc35932131a14a} compared to conventional agriculture.
