    What if we could redesign everything?
    The world's largest online festival of ideas.


    15th November, 18:00-21:00

    This event will enable you to view the DIF Festival organized by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation https://www.ellenmacarthurfoundation.org/ and expand your knowledge around what circularity really means and the circular initiatives taking place globally. It is also an opportunity to socialise with other circular economy professionals in Vienna and brainstorm future projects.

    What is the Disruptive Innovation Festival?
    The Disruptive Innovation Festival (DIF) is an online platform which aims to shift mindsets and inspire action towards a circular economy. It invites people to share disruptive ideas and stories on a number of topics and attracts a worldwide audience, sparking critical conversations and participation through a combination of live interviews, films, and podcasts.

    System Reset - Shot in London, Amsterdam and Barcelona, System Reset features some of the leading thinkers in materials, economics, the commons movement, FabLabs, digital citizenship, urban planning and architecture to collectively weave a picture of how our economy could operate.
