There will be no more waste in the city of tomorrow. What sounds like an utopian vision will be explored during the OSCEdays from June 29-July 2.

OSCE stands for Open Source Circular Economy and pursues the idea of ​​a sustainable future in which less garbage is created and the economy works in symbiosis with the environment and natural resources. This year’s OSCEdays theme is the CIRCULAR CITY. Through a wide range of interactive activities, workshops and lectures the participants will learn what open source and circular economy means for their everyday life, their neighborhood and the city of tomorrow.

The program for the OSCEdays is built collaboratively through input by its participants. Would you like to help shape the program, have an idea that you would like to introduce or a workshop you would like to offer?
