A new nature biosphere

Most of the area belonging to the German state of Brandenburg today is called Lower Lusatia (Niederlausitz or Dolna Łužyca) and is characterised by forests and meadows. In the course of much of the 19th and the entire 20th century, it was shaped by extensive coal mining.

Today, the abandoned mining areas are recultivated. The ground is shaped by natural forces like rain and wind and constitutes an important biosphere reserve.

Many birds, insects and other animals find refuge and breeding grounds here.

Make your own laser cutter is part of the idea of the so-called “maker culture”. The maker culture is a new Do-It-Yourself culture which develops innovative products and prototypes with the help of modern technology.  The goal is to solve technical problems with existing resources.

The ice network which is based in Cairo, Alexandria, Addis Ababab and Weimar supports young inventors with technical equipment such as 3D printer, CNC tools or laser cutters. But they also organize workshops on how to make your project come real!
