Open Source Circular Economy is here

Good design is open! The OSCEdays London team invites you to take part in the first Open Source Circular Economy days (OSCEdays) 2015, a global design challenge on open source circular economy. The London event will be held at the Fab Lab London from the 12th to 14th of June. It’s open to all; designers, coders, data scientists, engineers, campaigners, policy makers, waste & resource industry and many more. You can sign-up to join here.

Alongside challenge setters and supporters such as The Great Recovery, Open Energy Monitor, The Rubbish Diet, The People’s Design Lab and Cleanweb UK, it’s a chance to participate in a grassroots global event using open source principles to build a circular economy! With more than 3o cities taking part, from Shenzhen to Cairo, Lome to Berlin, Nijmegen to Kuala-Lumpur, simultaneously participating on locally identified challenges, there will be opportunities to connect and share knowledge around open source and the circular economy. Get a head start and meet the global community on the open OSCEdays forum.

It’s supported by great communities and organisations around the world, including the UK based Knowledge Transfer Network, who recognise the principles of openness and collaboration as important elements of a circular economy. This is a chance to join the OSCEdays community and put ideas into action, to learn, share and collaborate with like-minded people all over the world!

Hi Erica, I shared your LinkedIn post on the London event with the following people, asking them to participate themselves or send their colleagues/students

Professor Steve Evans at University of Cambridge http://www.ifm.eng.cam.ac.uk/people/se321/
Gareth Kane http://www.terrainfirma.co.uk/
Professor Mark Jolly at Cranfield University http://www.cranfield.ac.uk/about/people-and-resources/academic-profiles/satm-ac-profile/professor-mark-mr-jolly.html
Joe Jones http://sustainitsolutions.com/#team

Let’s hope some of them will participate. In any case, they might be useful contacts for you and the London team.

Take care, Silvia

Sounds great, you"ll have super exciting events in London. I just remembered another excellent person to invite: Dr. Mark Miodownik at the Institute of Making at University College London.
