Get stuck into a weekend of collaboration, inspiration and innovation and help create something wonderful!

What is OSCE days?

Good design is open! The OSCEdays London team invites you to take part in the first Open Source Circular Economy days (OSCEdays) 2015, a global design challenge on open source circular economy. The London event will be held at the Fab Lab London from the 12th to 14th of June. It’s open to all; designers, coders, data scientists, engineers, campaigners, policy makers, waste & resource industry and many more. You can sign-up to join here.

Alongside challenge setters and supporters like us, Open Energy MonitorThe Rubbish DietThe People’s Design Lab and Cleanweb UK, it’s a chance to participate in a grassroots global event using open source principles to build a circular economy! With more than 35 cities taking part, from Shenzhen to Cairo, Lome to Berlin, Nijmegen to Kuala-Lumpur, simultaneously participating on locally identified challenges, there will be opportunities to connect and share knowledge around open source and the circular economy. Get a head start and meet the global community on the open OSCEdays platform.

Not sure what open source and/ or circular economy means? Don’t worry! The OSCE team will be introducing both of these throughout the weekend, with a number of experts on hand to help.

Challenges include:

- Exploring how maker places can be more sustainable

- Building trust and transparency in our waste systems and product supply chains

- Taking a fairphone approach to energy monitors

- Circular design for wearables, the internet of things for products, fashion and more

By the end of the weekend you will have been part of solving these challenges through sustainable design, fixing bugs, prototyping solutions and building useful, customisable software, hardware, tools and culture to build a truly sustainable future that works without waste, in symbiosis with our environment and resources.
