FAB24 Mexico


July 27 - August 9, 2024 | Puebla, México

We are convinced that we can promote equity and social

justice through technological, frugal, and innovative

solutions that address relevant social problems.


Redefining Knowledge

In the age of AI, knowledge is no longer static but dynamic, processed, and applied intelligently. It encompasses acquiring, updating, and integrating information to generate ideas and solve problems. This transformation will profoundly affect education, work, health, transportation, and various aspects of life.

Ancestral Future

Cherished traditions must become evolving cultural practices that can adapt to social and technological advancements, bridging societal gaps and reflecting ever-changing needs and values. By embracing the past, frugal innovation unlocks pathways for improved quality of life. Exploring ancestral traditions enables access to better resources and opportunities for all, narrowing the divide between haves and have-nots.

Collective Wellbeing

To create an inclusive society, we must ensure access to a high quality of life while promoting general welfare and social justice. This involves developing innovative approaches at various levels, such as territorial, urban, and architectural, while also seeking more equitable economic systems to enhance collective wellbeing.

Human Tech

We aim to utilize technology tools and applications to enhance the quality of life for everyone. As digital technology has drastically altered our lives, it is crucial to establish fair and balanced ways of coexisting, producing, and consuming to ensure equitable outcomes in our rapidly changing world.

Emerging Futures

We will delve into emerging possibilities and trends with the potential to shape the future. These encompass technological, social, economic, and cultural changes. By identifying signals of change and exploring alternative scenarios, risks, and opportunities, individuals and organizations can effectively prepare for and adapt to an uncertain and ever-evolving future.
