The Open Labs are a collaboration of the OSCE Days and the
Disruptive Innovation Festival (DIF), an open online festival on the Circular
Economy happening from November 7-25, 2016.
The Open Labs are going to be a 3 week long open participatory
online & offline process to develop and implement practical ACTIONS to
research and create The Circular City in cities across the globe.
We have created an easy format to accomplish clear results:
Contributors can write “Action Recipes” for different specific topics, and
participants from different cities can implement these actions in local events.
It is an online community process: http://community.oscedays.org/t/collection-the-circular-city/5359
You are very welcome to join by co-writing an Action Recipe, become
a partner with your organization, and/or plan a local event to bring the recipes
We are just getting started and will keep you posted about the event
in the coming weeks. If you have any questions or if you are interested to
organize a local event, please get in touch!
META: Great start! I added a few bits to it that I think are necessary to share. Find my new draft below. Just edit the language a bit if you see typos or any other mistakes. Also, if you can think of a shorter title would be cool.
LINKS: I think Mailchimp allows hidden links like this. If not just place the links at the end of the line, maybe like this. | http://oscedays.org
IMAGE? I think Mailchimp allows also Images. Just download an Image of the design from this topic or directly from the design folder (Open Labs).
Ok, here is my new draft:
