Cambridge: Open Source Circular Economy days

What is OSCE Days?

Open Source Circular Economy Days (OSCEdays) is a global hackathon-style event and community to create open resources and possibilities for a global shift towards a waste-free, sustainable and environmentally friendly Circular Economy.

We will be one of 70+ cities across the globe running events between June 9th-13th, connecting different cultures and communities.

People from Industry, Science, Grassroots, Maker & Hacker movements, students, etc. will work together on all kinds of challenges discussing, developing and experimenting with the Open Source Circular Economy.

Event details:

Challenges have been pitched to choose from include:

  • User testing and building on a prototype app to promote reuse of household items
  • Investigating how urban farm waste can be turned into value
  • Exploring improving standardisation for suppliers of solar home systems (incl. emerging markets)
  • Tackling textiles waste, particularly for short-life workwear, for NUS

There will also be the opportunity to plug-in and contribute to challenges online around the world.

By the end of the day 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.

You can read more background in our mission statement and find more details on the event, challenges and how to get involved here.
