Readme First: The Global OSCEdays

This is the READ ME FIRST for the global OSCEdays. It tells you what the OSCEdays are, who it is and how and where you can get involved.

What Is OSCEdays?

The OSCEdays is an open network with the goal to explore the Open Source Circular Economy. It started at the beginning of 2015. The first achievement was a global event with 33 cities participating from June 11-15 2015 and the creation of a web platform.

From there the work continues to develop a global community and actions for an Open Source based Circular Economy.


The overall objective is to stimulate a debate and practical action towards a Circular Economy build with Open Source methodologies.

The OSCEdays are guided by a Board of Stewardship (BoST) – an open international group of people using a transparent workflow to develop the OSCEdays. You can join this group at any given moment. Learn more about the BoST, how it works and how to join it HERE.
