Green Maker Mania


The best way to predict the future is to invent it – Alan Kay

The Cape Town Future Energy Festival is proud to bring you Cape Town’s first ever ‘Green Maker Mania’.  Join us as we celebrate and showcase our local maker culture and create conversations with makers whose work is inspired by climate action, energy efficiency, solar and wind power, water and waste efficiency, sustainable living and smart transport. 
If you consider yourself a bit of a tinkerer this is your time to shine! We invite you to share your innovation and creativity.
The Festival organisers will select 20 projects which best complement the future energy theme of the Festival. These 20 makers will also be invited to showcase their projects on the Festival's digital platforms to a live audience at a public and media event in early 2021.

Think out the box

We particularly encourage exhibits that are interactive and that highlight the process of making things.

    • Sustainability and Green Tech

    • Upcycling or re-using waste
