PRESS COLLECTION _ Collection of articles about the OSCEdays (pls. contribute)


###Saw an article about the OSCEdays? Please share the link in the comments and help to build a collection.



Hi we should collect together all articles about the OSCEdays on the go. It will be hard to remember afterwards all the articles. So please, whenever you see something post the Link or an image or whatever below in the comments.

From time to time we can clean up and organize everything.


Hi, we did not track how the media globally reported about the OSCEdays. But this information is useful to find sponsors and industry partners for 2016. Please post what you got and still can find in the comment section or just edit it in - post is a wiki.

Open Source Circular Economy: Global promotion on Europe


Sam just published a superbly written article in Circulate, the Ellen MacArthur Foundation’s online daily magazine. It makes a very cogent argument on why we need the open source spirit and principles, rather than some new high-tech gadget, the adoption at every scale and the participation of every form of organization for the circular economy to become mainstream, fast. Thank you, Sam.

Please share it with your networks.

Hi, I found this email from the local organizers in Dubai in my inbox. Wow :slight_smile:

Dear All,

We got some good coverage today for the OSCE days media story that we had published. We are expecting some more to appear in the trade publication in the next few days. Attaching few of the scans and links.

There is an article from me about OSCE in the journal ‘Ökologisches Wirtschaften’ - ‘Ecological Economy’ - in german. Shared by the editors under an NC license :frowning: - I gave it to them under a CC-BY-SA license. Anyway. That is a good journal. Up to 20 000 german engineers read it. I already got the first emails because of that article.


Hi, got another email from a reporter today. She wrote:

Learned about you while reading page 195 of Doughnut Economics.

Not sure what “Doughnut Economics” is though.


I think Kate Raworth, the proponent of this model, has attended one of the DIFs, there one possible connection with us. In any case her name and model sounds familiar to me, but I did not go into details about her economic model.



Cool. The Daily Planet reposted the piece about our search for a new definition:
