Do It Yourself Festival

DIY Festival Hungary, 2018

If we like to find the reason for Do It Yourself movement, we simply have to understand how human mind works creatively. Besides automation and digital technologies, there is still existence of natural need to create something with our own hands to change something directly around us or just make it happen in our own ways. A DIY movement in a way, can be a solution for environmental and sustainability challenges. That’s why ENVIENTA supports everything around the DIY.

Thanks to the DIY movement, now there are many maker- and hackerspaces around the world. At these places we can not only create new tools and gadgets etc., but also we can repair (or get it fixed by community members) our home equipment and therefore reduce environmental impacts. These community spaces are mostly taken by inhabitants, who prefer utilising locally available resources and materials which is the behaviour that supports sustainability also.

This summer ENVIENTA Hungary will organise Do It Yourself Festival offering a great opportunity to popularise such movements. Our primary goal is to present the “maker culture” and its experience the joy of DIY. The secondary goal is to organise a project addressing local affairs through which the local participants will be enabled to work together and feel the community achievement.
