Invito a firmare il Manifesto del Fai-Da-Te Digitale

(questo è un invito pubblicato originariamente dal Progetto DiDIY. Viene riproposto qui, in forma parziale, perché assolutamente in linea con i principi fondanti di FKI, e per questo invitiamo tutti a firmarlo! (per il trattamento dei dati, vedi nota in fondo)

Do It Yourself – DIY – happens when people and communities just go ahead and make something for themselves, without waiting for a professional or for permission. DiDIY (Digital DIY) is the huge boost to this activity – and the associated ‘can do’ mindset – facilitated by digital technologies, through the sharing of designs, tools, support, and inspiration.

The DiDIY Project has summarized the many benefits of DiDIY in a Creative Society Manifesto, whose points are listed below. Full text and goals of the Manifesto, that we are are all invited sign, are described in a blog post on the DiDIY website.

For society to reap the full benefits of Digital DIY there is a need:

[In the interests of sharing, learning and inspiration:]

  • To promote opportunities for a thriving circuit of sharing, learning and inspiration in all fields of Digital DIY making.
  • To explore alternate forms of creative platform – online, offline, and interlinked – which offer new opportunities to make, share, connect, include and inspire.

[In the interests of widening access:]

  • To support growth of community making in a diverse range of locations, and attract people of different backgrounds and interests.
  • To diversify notions of ‘making’ to include a greater range of tools, practices and interests (and therefore more radically diverse ‘makerspaces’).
  • To consider creating spaces and facilities for making in library, museum, school, and other civic developments.

[In the interests of economy, business and entrepreneurship:]

  • To value the Digital DIY spirit of innovation, invention and entrepreneurship, and support grassroots and entrepreneurial initiatives.
  • To support new business models based in sharing of knowledge, collaborative making and circular economy.
  • To support education, learning and continuing professional development which will enhance collaborative and entrepreneurial traits in employees.

[In the interests of well-being and sustainability:]

  • To enable more people to experience the enhanced well-being reported by makers, associated with close social interaction, creative problem-solving and greater creative confidence.
  • To embrace and enhance the role of Digital DIY in realising sustainable futures.

[In the interests of our rights and responsibilities:]

  • To use open standards to drive innovation, and ensure that regulations on product safety and intellectual property do not stifle creativity.
  • To make responsible use of the power of Digital DIY, respecting other citizen’s rights, increasing meaningful participation, and contributing to positive societal development.
