Welcome!

Thank you for visiting the Open Source Circular Economy repository. This document (the README file) will provide you with an overview of the project.

OSCEdays: Open Source Circular Economy Days

The Project

The OSCEdays is an open network with the goal to explore the Open Source Circular Economy. It started at the beginning of 2015. The first achievement was a global event with 33 cities participating from June 11-15 2015 and the creation of a web platform.
From there the work continues to develop a global community and actions for an Open Source based Circular Economy. The overall objective is to stimulate a debate and practical action towards a Circular Economy built upon,. Open Source methodologies.

Who are we?

We are a global collective of open source designers, advocates and practitioners. The OSCEdays are guided by a Board of Stewardship (BoST) – an open international group of members using a transparent workflow to develop the OSCEdays. You can join this group at any given moment. Please feel free to contribute to this effort if you would like to share open source circular designs.

What are we doing?

Traditionally, we hold a one week event each year in June. This year’s event is held June 1-11. We are in the process of re-imagining the platform so that engagement is year round.

Use our Platform!

If you believe that Open Source can transform society to be more equal, and also believe that a circular economy that reduces raw material extraction and pollution loads is desirable, please feel free to join OSCEdays and collaborate with others of like mind.
