We got an email from Anna Tari - the founder of the Circular Economy Club. I had a call with her and she invites OSCEdays to join the club as a member.
The Circular Economy is a global network and about running events - just like us. It is an organization of volunteers and they help their members to connect to other members and with promoting events or content for example.
CEC is the international non-profit network of circular economy professionals and organisations. The club is run voluntarily by its own members with the aim to spur collaboration among like-minded peers from all around the world.
The membership is free. We would share their Logo on our page and they would share ours. And they will also send out tweets or blogpost to help us to announce our global call for example.
Here is a draft for a press release Anna drafted about OSCEdays joining as a member.
Another interesting future collaboration could emerge around their upcoming mapping project. They plan a Mapping Week and a tool to collect data about circular stakeholders in a city. Longterm vision is to create a global participatory map about such institutions. They are in the process of creating a step by step guide to get people on track to start the mapping.
I told her that this is a project we would really like to support (add the guide to our guides etc.) as long as the produced data is open data. She said that is what they are planning. Great!
So I don't see why we should not connect. Any objections?
