Hey @BoST + All,
we are a bit late but we need to start to spread the call for cities for the JUNE event 2017.
Here is how we did it last year. And again below you can find some texts to use to post in social media or send out via email.
In general I don’t expect as much feedback this year because we changed the sign-up-procedure and also the whole way we ask people to set up and structure their events. So we get this year quality over quantity. Also we have the Writers Weekends once a month running up to the global event creating content and attention.
But to get at least a little bit going we need to start sharing the Call. So please post in all channels

We are creating a global event and hackathon exploring Open Source for a sustainable Circular Economy: the Open Source Circular Economy Days. We need your help to find local organizers, engage a global community and spread the word. Here is a little more info:
The Open Source Circular Economy Days (OSCEdays) will happen for the third year running, between June 8-12 2017. The event aims to bring together and globally connect creators, experts, activists and innovators from the fields of open source, circular economy, sustainability, design, waste and resource management, to develop and exchange ideas and to prototype systems, products and designs for an Open Source Circular Economy.
A global sustainable economy can only work through a decentralised and Open Source approach! Therefore we invite people from across the globe to set up local events – big or small – and connect them to others events. In the first two years, over 70 cities from all parts of the globe participated. Join us for 2017. Read the full Call for Cities and learn how to sign up your local event by clicking this link:
Help us to spread the word. Share the call and send it to friends that might be interested in joining and progressing this global initiative.

Call For Cities For June 2017!
With two solid years behind us, we have learned a lot and made many new friends. We are ready to continue this journey with all of you to bring together the Circular Economy with Open Source methodologies.
Many of you have asked when the next OSCEdays will be. We are happy to announce that the event will be on:
JUNE 8-12, 2017

####What is new?
To make it easier for you to participate, we have created a new way to sign up and log your local events. You can find information about that in the new participation guide.
Open Source is all about sharing knowledge. In an effort to collect our combined community knowledge and make it accessible to the world, we have condensed all that we have learned in the past years into a new concept: We replaced ‘CHALLENGES’ with ‘ACTIONS’. Actions are structured exploration activities that are explained in a clear step-by-step tutorial format. Anyone can follow the steps and build and experience the Open Source Circular Economy solutions that our community has co-created. We piloted the ACTIONS concept during our collaboration with the Ellen MacArthur Foundation DIF in November 2016 – and the results encouraged us to continue experimenting with our new “ACTIONS” concept.
In the run up to the next global event we will host a ‘Writers Weekend’ every month and invite you to create documentation and ACTION protocols that people can use during their local events. The first one is happening on March 4-5, 2017. Mark your calendar and join us in this documentation jam! Document and share. We will tell you more about the Writers Weekends in the next newsletter.
