Get involved with the e-NABLE movement and help enable the future!
“e-NABLE” was the name given to the movement’s initial map of volunteers and to the private Google Plus community where many of the community volunteers collaborate. (Our origin story is told in this entertaining short video.)
If you really want to become part of the movement, join the Google Plus community and introduce yourself! That’s also the best place for answers to questions, and for advice.
“EnablingTheFuture.org” is an independent website managed by Jen Owen, whose husband Ivan co-created the 3D-printable Robohand that started it all.
The Enable Community Foundation is us: the non-profit founded to support the movement and advance its goals. (For more about the Foundation, see About.) To stay connected with the Foundation, use the “STAY CONNECTED” and “FOLLOW US” tools at the bottom of the page.
There are lots of other e-NABLE -relevant Resources out there, but much of what you need to get involved is right here!
