@BoST please make the necessary changes to the draft below, before April 19, thank you.
We hope all of you are doing well, working successfully towards a sustainable, open, happy world.
We have excellent news for you: as of March 2019, the Open Source Circular Economy e.V. association with charitable status is registered in Germany. It took a long time to get here, but with perseverance, dedication and hard work we have achieved one of our main objectives. We are proud of our German team who put a lot of effort and time into it. The association will have a dedicated website http://osce-ev.de/. Soon you will find all the details regarding the association’s leadership and activities posted on the website.
It is also time to get your local team ready for OSCEdays 2019. Our fifth global event will take place in the period June 7 - 17 2019.
We continue to focus on solutions with a sense of urgency, as humanity continues to accelerate unsustainable trends. Just this month, scientists have announced that carbon dioxide has reached levels in our atmosphere not seen in 3 million years Science Advances.
Our response it to hack or transform our cities into the physical and virtual spaces from which sustainable solutions will radiate towards regions, countries, the whole planet. The June event motto is The City is Open Source. We invite you to answer questions such as:
What if the city was a farm to feed us?
What if the city was a café (or any other social space)?
What if the city was …?
Of course, feel free to choose your own activity to work on and your own period, if June is not feasible. Whatever you choose, please make sure you share and document as much as you can, it is essential to our community’s mission.
In other good news, we are pleased to welcome a new member of our Board of Stewardship, Mike Boyle, who is based in Vienna, Austria. We are always happy to get new perspectives, ideas and experience to our community.
Please continue to use our forum, if you need help there is always someone ready to answer your call.
Have fun, do good work, see you all in June,
Maike, Qing, Silvia, Gien, Mike, Ricardo
