What is the Disruptive Innovation Festival 2015 (DIF)?

September 17, 2015 Disruptive Innovation

The Disruptive Innovation Festival is curated by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation and in 2015 will take place over three weeks from 2nd – 20th November.

The DIF brings together thought-leaders, entrepreneurs, businesses, makers, learners and doers to catalyse system-level change for a future economy.

Over three weeks, using a mix of online and face to face events, participants have an abundance of opportunities to explore the economy through a different lens. We want to share all the ways you and our partners are challenging the linear ‘take make and dispose’ model of the economy, replacing it by a more prosperous regenerative and circular economy – is this the ultimate disruption?

Examples of some of the broad themes that encompass this are:

DESIGN, INNOVATION
, SYSTEMS THINKING
, 21ST CENTURY SCIENCE MATERIALS AND ENERGY
, NEW BUSINESS MODELS, ENTREPRENEURSHIP
, SHARING ECONOMY
, INTERNET OF THINGS

Last year there were over 200 sessions and 23,000 session views from 170 countries on the DIF website in the inaugural Festival. The organisers expect that their second event will be even bigger and better so please sign up to participate at this link https://www.thinkdif.co/user/register.
