Sustainable Living Lab (SL2) is the Singapore partner for the mYouth 2.0 project. SL2 is a social enterprise that works at the intersection of social innovation, sustainability, and technology. SL2 helps communities and organizations run purposeful hardware Hackathons, helps makers skill-up through technology programs and develops sound amplifiers, accessories, toys and furniture from sustainable or waste materials such as bamboo, fire hoses, cardboard and pallet wood.
SL2 also operates Singapore’s first and leading Makerspace and has nurtured a growing community of inventors, makers and craftsmen from all walks of life, who make a kinder and gentler world. Equipped with analog and digital fabrication tools such as a 3D Printer, Laser Cutter and a CNC Machine, the Lab serves as the focal point for its community of makers.
SL2 has conducted several hackathons in Singapore since 2011 for organizations such as Amazon Web Services, Nanyang Technological University, National University of Singapore, Institution of Engineers and many others. In these hackathons SL2 also conducts master-classes for participants on mobile app development (Android) and Arduino programming. The enterprise had over 11,000 program participants since October 2011. SL2 is also a Clean Tech Partner of Autodesk Inc and the Maker Camp affiliate of Make Magazine & Google. They currently have a full-time staff team of 4 people and over 30 volunteers.
