If the global society would switch towards local production, some of the wicked problems could be solved. Bringing production back to the place where it is consumed would raise awareness about the product, and responsibility towards your own environment.
But what are the local materials in the modern, urban cities where we are living in, especially in Eindhoven? The fields of flax or small sheep farms are not occurring in the 21st century and economically it isn’t possible anymore. We have to look carefully for the opportunities that we have in front of us. Eindhoven is the blooming technical centre, technology is ruling but also producing physical materials.
