The Disruptive Innovation Festival is an online festival of ideas that asks the question: what if we could redesign everything? During the DIF, we’ll be asking our speakers to tell us what they think is in store for the future of the economy. While watching you can chip in with your thoughts and questions: sign up for a free My DIF account and ask your question through the discussion forum below the live stream!

What does the circular economy look like in practice? How are companies embracing the principles of the circular economy and turning them into viable businesses? What approaches are companies using to overcome embedded linear models to create businesses that generate both healthy revenues as well as healthy outcomes for people and planet? 

In this very visual and sensory session, Joe Iles and Nick Jeffries from the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, invite you to explore the circular economy with them through shared anecdotes, sharp couture, eating, drinking and handling of numerous objects. 

Grab a Toast Ale and join them on their exploration.
