From Sep. 24-27 a meeting was held to discuss the future of the OSCEdays. A detailed documentation is published here.
An Association & Guidelines
One of the outcomes was that we need a legal entity to run and support future events and do a lot more community enabling projects. We decided that we will found with a little support of the RFF a “Verein“ (=association) in germany.
For this association we need clear guidelines and statutes. We develop them together in the forum. A start is made. Please join the discussion.
A Circular Economy Definition
We discovered that we need to create a better Circular Economy definition/description. None of the available definitions cover all important aspects or give clear guidance.
The open collaboration and discussion on that definition has already started. We are happy about your inputs or endorsements.
A New Event
People at the meeting decided to do a next global event from June 9-14 2016. But the OSCEdays brand and platform is open for everyone to do similar events and work on challenges throughout the year.
Some of us were discussing improvements of the platform/forum. Please join the discussion if you are interested in that.
Call For A Fundraiser
All activities are happening pretty open in the forum and the best way to get involved is pretty obvious: just start to work there with us.
A good introduction to the collaboration provides our READ ME file.
An important thing missing in the current activities is fundraising. There is noone working in that capacity. To build the association and do future work we need funding. But we are lacking funds as well as fundraising skills. If you are willing to do that job and spend some of your time please get in touch with Erica, Tim & Lars.
More updates soon.
Btw. Some days ago Erica was presenting the OSCEdays at the Wuthering Bytes Conference. Here is a recording of her talk. At the end she talks also a little bit about the future.
