UPDATE: Task is solved.
I think a good way to announce the new date on the website is a blogpost about it that we can also send out as a newsletter. I wrote a first draft but I think on this one a native speaker should check the language. Maybe @silvia @sharmarval @seigorobinson @gien / or @nicustasia @transitionmaike - one of you has the time?
New Global Date: June 8-12 & OSCEdays Now
With two years in the back we learned a lot and are ready for new experiments together with you and everyone in the world willing to explore the Circular Economy using Open Source methodologies.
First of all: The OSCEdays ‘brand’ and platform is now open for you to take whenever you want. Want to run a local event or hackathon on Open Source & Circular Economy? Feel free to connect to the platform, use the resources and methodologies that have been built in the past and contribute to it.
But we have been asked for a new JUNE date by many of you – and of course we don’t abandon where we are coming from. And so we are happy to announce that we invite you all again to run an event at the same time. The date for this is:
JUNE 8-12, 2017
We will develop and come up with new ideas how to connect a global community before, during and after the event and try to find together with all of you ways how we can globally collaborate on the development of a sustainable and circular economy.
There is a new way for signing up your local events. You can find information about that in the new participation guide. [LINK]
Please sign up your event and help us as we are going to build momentum in the coming weeks.
We also condensed what we learned in the past years into a new concept: We replaced ‘challenges’ with ‘Actions’. Actions are predefined activities well documented in the form of a step by step tutorial. Everyone can follow the steps and build and experience Open Source Circular Economy solutions.
We experimented the ACTIONS concept first during our collaboration with the DIF in November 2016 [LINK OPEN LABS DOCUMENTATION] – and the results encouraged us to continue experimenting with the concept. Actions offer content for your local events. In the coming weeks we will come up with formats that help us to build more content – write ACTIONS – for the global event in JUNE and beyond. If you have a solution or experiment on Circular Economy in mind and are willing stay tuned to join our upcoming ‘writers weekends’. (A simple way to do that is to sign up to our newsletter – if you haven’t already).
