Connecting Circularity In Space !
Building on the feedback of last year OSCEdays Berlin 2018 turns itself this time into a productive interactive exhibition.
It will work like this: Sessions at the event will be turned into – a pedestal – to exhibit something and to interact with after it has ended.
The pedestals will look a bit like this and are provided by Mifactori.
For their pedestal we ask all Session Makers to bring a few things:
Please bring: Something physical to exhibit on top of your pedestal
We ask you to bring something physical to exhibit on top of your sessions pedestal. This could be:
- Your product or a part of it, or just a material you use. If your product is too valuable for the exhibition you could also bring a model of it or create one at the event.
- A physical sign of a challenge you face like a waste part, a waste water sample or current non circular choice you need to make because there are no alternatives.
- Outcomes of brainstorming workshops can be visualized with little models made of card board, Lego or other things. Some basic materials for this are provided in the welcome area at the Circular Berlin Booth at Infralab Markt.
- Be creative : - )
Plus: Basic text info
The pedestals have 3 sides with written information provided on A4 paper sheets. 2 of these sides invite the visitors to add information and ideas. 2 need some attention of you upfront.
The 3 sides are:
W H A T
Info about the thing exhibited on top. You could bring a brochure of your project or product, prepare a longer text and bring a printed version of it or create a brief hand written summary at the event. It could be one sentence or a longer text with images.
C H A L L E N G E S
Do you face any open challenges, open problems or unsolved questions regarding the circularity of your activities? Name up to 3 of them here. It can again be one sentence or longer sophisticated explanations of your problem. Printed or handwritten on site.
People will have the chance to add remarks and ideas here. You’ll get a collection of ideas.

Here’s where the visitors come in handy! Circularity is about creating new connections in our material and energy flows. The output of one thing becomes the input for another. This side of the pedestal starts with empty pages. Visitors are invited to write “connection stories” here connecting the pedestals. „Pedestal 12 – the roof-top-farm – could grow nettles for the biodegradable nettle shoes on pedestal 23.“
The stories can be long or short. It can be drawings. People can leave URLs or their contact details if they want to work on this more!
Result: An exhibition grows !
This creates documentation on site, preserves the sessions. An interactive exhibition – created by all visitors and content providers – grows at the event becoming richer in ideas and more networked in possibilities over time.
