Welcome to the Open Source Circular Economy Days Florence!

11 June 2016 –
FABLAB Florence


Florence is probably one of the most famous tourist attractions in Italy, and it’s continuously visited by tourists from all over the world.
Beside its wonderful historical centre, however, the city itself is facing many issues mainly related to its current development model and its economic fabric.
As the city itself lies in a relatively small area surrounded by hills and mountains, there is little to no space for further developing the infrastructures and services needed to withstand the growing amount of activities going on in the area, from the industrial ones (mainly located in the so-called Piana, a 25kms long, narrow plain strip spanning from Florence to Pistoia) to the more service-related ones, such as the steadily-growing touristic sector focused around Florence.
The peculiar geographic and economical traits of the city and of its suburbs pose major issues to its future development. Those issues become even bigger when framed them from a sustainability and circularity perspective.

With OSCEdays 2016 Florence, we would like to start designing innovative answers for the following questions:

How Open Source Circular Economy approaches and models can create viable solutions for municipalities that share the same characteristics as Florence?
How can we effectively help with the development of a demand-driven, project-based infrastructure of projects, initiatives and applications sharing the OSCE philosophy?
