For the first five years of its existence, the Ellen MacArthur Foundation's DIF has taken place as a multiple week long festival of ideas taking place once per year in November. The DIF will now be delivering four interactive online events to our audiences across the year.

Replacing the traditional three-week event in November, this year's DIF will take place on June 14th, September 10th-12th, and November 10th-14th. Each of these events will continue to be hosted at with participants able to engage and interact in the website's comments section and on social media channels using #thinkdif.

The DIF aims to shift mindsets and inspire action towards a circular economy by sharing and exploring disruptive ideas and stories across interconnected topics. It will still be possible to apply to speak at the DIF - applications to speak are now open for the November 2019 event.
