Through the focus on resilience, FAB23 Bhutan aims to act as a catalyst, providing a global forum for the ecosystem of makers, inventors, artists, academics, researchers, engineers, entrepreneurs, and creative people to connect, collaborate and co-create pathways to shape our shared future.
The theme also attempts to connect to Bhutan’s new national strategic focus: Believe. At the heart of this shift is a renewed belief in the nation’s capabilities, values, contribution, and future. The conference will embrace Bhutan’s future with digital fabrication solutions, centering resilience and adaptability as the core elements of solution development.
