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!

In this session, Leyla Acaroglu and other members of the UnSchool team will wrap up the Post Disposable challenge presenting some of the significant outcomes and learnings for the DIF community. 

What is this challenge?

The #PostDisposable challenge is designed to see how quickly all 7.4 billion people on the planet can create a post disposable future.

#PostDisposable challenges people, industry and governments to rapidly integrate closed loop systems to advance the circular economy and positive change. It is a global movement to rapidly redesign systems that sustain wastefulness and resource depletion by reframing negative narratives. 

The campaign elevates everyday conversation, designed to provide actions and engagement with post disposable practices. We want to normalize #PostDisposable, and will feature ideas from our community on how to activate this collective and collaborative change.
