Rubbish = Resource: Waste based innovation in 2030

On the 21st November between 14.00 and 19.00 at Open Design City, you are invited to participate in an event that will bring together thinkers and doers to create and explore futures in which Cradle to Cradle, Upcycling and Open Design have flourished.

How will processes and approaches such as Cradle to Cradle, Upcycling, and Open Design affect how we innovate with waste? How will these changes affect our daily lives?

Cradle to Cradle and Upcycling processes both view waste as a resource for production and creation, but from different perspectives and approaches as to how to achieve this. Open Design is potentially an enabler for both processes, facilitating the distribution of these behaviors and also the sharing of knowledge and process.

In this workshop, we will share our knowledge on different processes, and then explore together what the world looks like in 2030 in light of these emerging trends. We will use the resources of Open Design City to prototype and articulate these visions.

This workshop will be in conjunction with the Fraunhofer Institute for Systems and Innovation Research. Our aim is to bring together a range of researchers, radical thinkers, activists and practitioners from the fields of Open Design, Cradle to Cradle and Upcyling together for one day to build a vision for the future.

We will provide you with good food, a space to explore and create, and other interesting people with which to explore and innovate.

Spaces on this workshop are limited, so please email us, along with a little bit about yourself to reserve a space.
