Who is going to be the moderator of the next call and the deputy?

Hi there,

I am keen to join the board of stewards -

I am a co founding member of SRG ( stop reset go) with Gien (from Cape Town) - I am also half way through the Circular economy MBA with Bradford Uni. I am based in Northamptonshire UK

I am hoping to get an OSCE days event together for Peterborough in the next month in time for June 9- 13


I am not actually based in Peterborough but am sure we can gain some momentum and have a few key individuals engage with the days in June

Kind regards,

Tom Harper

Hi @tomharper

that sounds great! Do you want to join the Call on May 9 or already the next one on April 25?

Please add me on Skype so I can add you to the call when it has started. I messaged you my skype ID in an PM.

Hi Lars,

I have a community meeting the eve of the 25th - so wouldn’t be able to join.

I shall endeavour to bring myself up to speed on developments and strategy for the OSCEdays in June by way of exploring this site and seeing what plans/ processes/ projects are being prepared. Then I hope to be fairly ready for the meeting on the 9th May.

I sent a Skype contact request this morning - hopefully you should receive that?

Who is contacting media?

  • Erica, Sharon on it
  • Erica talked to Webster
    Action: Each of us should do more media outreach

Global video exchange ideas

  • Lars will set up global reporting = meet the organizers of each local event
  • New format might be developed by Franz & Leo from Vienna, ie.:
    Interview with Challengers worldwide (dwelve deeper into specific challenges through video)
    IDEA by Jaime: “Show three similar events in different places, connect them -> video”

Global business model challenge

  • Lars: Tool is developed, videos not done. People are interested in business model aspect
    Action, all confirm: Put on website as Global Challenge
  • Silvia: Let people work with framework alone and come up with new things
  • Lars: Tool connected to business model canvas, people should improve tool through usage
  • Silvia: People will help explain concept by/ after trying it out
