Design The Future Now is an associative project where you can be involved, where you can come and share, where you can learn much from the available possibilities. With its innovative approach, the do it yourself, you are becoming a genuine actor !
what is do it yourself ?
it is an approach aiming at boosting your individual creativity, thanks to sharing talents, skills and materials. It's finality consists in counterbalancing the prevailing model we are living in, which leads to hyper-consumption. This is made possible by the creation of artefacts, services or even activities that come out of your brain.
you are no longer a witness, nor a spectator or a consumer. Your are THE actor, from the brainstorming to the making. It is less to exchange than to share. This approach gets out of the classical and therefore limited model, and fosters creativity, innovation and independence. It runs contrary to the way in which industry works and produces. That is why it may lead to find some lost how-to again. How-to judged old fashion or out to date by industry.
profits are no longer what matters most. Individual emancipation, independence have also to be taken into account. So that it enables some further individual steps and a collective progress. Beyond independence, it is an occasion to create new social cohesion, in a groupe and, in a larger scale, within the whole society. Do it youreself helps the members of all group to stick better together. No matter the age, no matter the background, no matter where they come from. It is a way to assure a tougher social bound. Encouraging people to talk one to another, to get in touch beyond the age or wealth gap. Thanks to this approach, people are no longer alone, neither are they lonely. You become one of the actors of the society you are living in.
