Local Manufacturing for Global Good

MakerNet Alliance

Digital technologies have transformed how we produce and distribute information. Today, they’re revolutionizing the way we produce and distribute things. A digitally-enabled alternative to 20th-century mass production is emerging.


We envision a future of sustainable, globally networked local manufacturing. A future where innovative useful products can be designed locally and shared globally. Where things are made by entrepreneurs living in the communities that use them, tailored to their unique needs and using locally available materials.


The MakerNet Alliance is a global network of people and organizations building the knowledge, infrastructure, and policies to enable this future. We empower communities around the world to make the things they need, when and where they need them, in a way that creates jobs and protects our planet.

Join us, and help build the future of manufacturing.
