We've just announced the second Open Source Circular Economy days 
(http://oscedays.org), taking place between June 9th-13th 2016, in towns and 
cities all around the world.

We're working towards the ultimate goal of a waste-free, regenerative 
circular economy, and we see the open source methodology as the best (perhaps 
only) way to get there.
We're building a movement to work on this goal, and develop the tools, 
methods and projects that can serve as stepping stones to a working circular 

The Call for Cities is now open, and we would love for more people in the 
Open Hardware community around the world to get together and work on making 
their projects more sustainable, more modular, more repairable, and find ways 
to bring both Circular Economy thinking to the Open Source world, and vice 

The event is used as a catalyst - to raise awareness, to focus energy and to 
build networks and working methods which can develop into an ongoing movement 
of open source circular economy projects and communities.

During the first OSCEdays last June, we had 1500+ people in 32 cities on 6 
continents takng part - we want this year to be even better, with even more 
communities connected, more collaboration and ongoing projects.
We want to build on the momentum of the growing open source sustainability 
movement - to reach out to different sectors of society, to test our 
hypotheses and to develop useful, practical projects which can bring us 
closer to our goal.
