What’s the DIF?

Green Biz


Do you know about the DIF (Disruption Innovation Festival)? This annual online festival of ideas asks: what is we could redesign everything? Free online sessions run from November 6-24, 2017.

Tune into the DIF Live Launch

What are the stories that we tell ourselves about the economy?

That’s the question that Mark Stevenson, Ann Pettifor, and Tim Harford will explore at the DIF Live Launch, live from the Crypt on the Green, in London, on Monday 6th November. Make sure you tune into our live stream on your chosen device from 17:00 GMT.

They’ll be broadcasting the whole event on the DIF website, where your hosts, Joe and Vicky, will be making you welcome and fielding questions for the speakers.

Discover the Circular Economy Playlist

The DIF team has created a Circular Economy Playlist for this year’s event that will give viewers the chance to get up to speed on topical issues and to get involved in the debates around them.

Make sure you tune into The Circular Economy Playlist: An Introduction on the 7th November at 12:00 GMT, to explore and have a sneak peak at some sessions featuring in the Playlist.

Keep an eye on the DIF’s new Playlists section, where we’ll be collating weekly highlights, recommended sessions, and specific topics.

Introducing the Circular Design Case

This year’s Festival will provide DIF participants with the opportunity to start their own circular design journey by taking part in the new Circular Design Case.

Participants will get to choose an everyday product, made out of plastics or plastics-based fibres, and reflect on how to make its systemic process fit for a circular economy.

Make sure you tune into the Kick-off session at 17:00 GMT on the 10th November to find out more about the challenge, download all the resources you’ll need, and learn more about the submission process and judging criteria.
