#How to Join?
We are open for new people anytime, online and offline :slight_smile:

(1) A good start is to read this READ ME and have a look around in the forum - study the Berlin Categoryas well as the Berlin Tag. There you get a first impression and find open ends do contribute to directly online. Scroll down to see a list of teams working on the event and how they are doing it.

(2) Join a meeting. There are regular physical meetings at the CRCRL lab. Find dates below. Just come by and get an idea.

(3) Create a challenge. You can create an Open Source Circular Economy related challenge anytime here in the forum and present it at the event as well. There will be an open call for challenges. But you can do it already.
