OSCEdays & DIF
Lab on the ‘Circular City’
Here is my idea for what we can do with/for the EMF during the DIF Festival:
Lab: Develop and Implement ’Action Recipes” on ‘The Circular City’
I think @Silvia initial thinking to pick a subject – the subject – of the circular city is good.
I suggest that we work with our new OSCEdays idea of ‘Action Recipes’ (outlined here – don’t miss) and use the DIF collaboration to make fast progress with it.
In general I suggest to run two phases during the 3 week DIF festival
We make sure there is at least one local event – an event where we can meet, for example in Berlin – but also invite others to set up spontaneously theirs.
A simple Action Recipe could be to sit together for 1 day and research and map all circular spaces in a city (upcycling stores, recycling facilities, repair cafes etc.) and create a wiki about it in the OSCEdays forum in the city categories. But I am sure there will be more interesting ideas.
From here on it is just Details. Here is a draft to start to work with.
Draft for Schedule and Steps
The DIF Festival is going on for 3 weeks. We could have a full 3 week lab with 3 phases each phase going on for a week.
WEEK 1: Subject Market
People can suggest ideas for Action Recipes. Sign up. Teams are built around the ideas. Everyone who suggests should have a local place in mind where the Action Recipe will be implemented (a local event).
WEEK 2: Develop The Recipes
The teams meet online and develop the recipes – Step by Step Tutorials. At the end of this weeks we have published Recipes everyone in the world can pick up.
Remember: All the time we can get inspired by the other sessions run during the DIF and try to connect to them with questions or other ideas, where it makes sense.
WEEK 3: Implementation
The scripts are put in action in local events. We have at least one event for sure. But reach out to the network to set up spontaneous or less spontaneous groups and so on. There could be one or two main days.
Budget & Workload
This all can be done quietly with less impact or noisy with a lot of activities. This really depends on the budget we can get for it.
If you like the concept and maybe after we defined it a bit more here in a discussion in the thread below or in the next BoST Call I can together with @JayKay & @Silvia develop a budget for it and a more defined concept to send over to the EMF.
