• What is the DIF?

    “What if we could redesign everything?” That’s the question we will be putting to economists, entrepreneurs, academics, designers, futurists, city planners and more at the 2017 Disruptive Innovation Festival (DIF). The DIF is a three-week-long online festival of ideas which is free for a global audience to access and contribute to between 6th and 24th November.

    Find out about the DIF here.

  • Where is the DIF taking place?

    The DIF is an online festival, so all sessions take place at thinkdif.co. They are globally accessible and you can join the DIF from wherever you are. The individual page for each session will tell you how and when to join - sometimes it is as simple as pressing 'play'. You will be able to join on any device: your computer, tablet or smartphone.

    If you sign up for the DIF, you can 'star' your favourite sessions or add all the sessions you’d like to see to your own calendar; located on your 'My DIF' page.

  • I have tried to sign up but I didn’t receive a verification email. What should I do?

    The email will have been sent straightaway, there shouldn't be a delay and the top culprit is normally your spam folder. Look for an email from ThinkDIF 'no-reply@ellenmacarthurfoundation.org'.


    If you still can't find it please contact the DIF team via the email address at the bottom of this page and we'll get back to you ASAP.

  • Can I apply to be a speaker for more than one session?

    Yes, please contact the DIF team via the email address at the bottom of this page or apply for another session at 'Speak at the DIF'.

  • Can I screen DIF sessions for lots people to watch at my organisation?

    Absolutely, we want to share the sessions and ideas discussed at the DIF with as many people as possible, so go for it! While you're there, why not share some of the buzz from your screening on Twitter or Instagram, using #thinkdif so other attendees around the world can see how you're getting involved?

  • Can I watch sessions after their scheduled time?

    All DIF sessions are available during the DIF itself, which will be 6th - 24th November 2017. If you also want to enjoy the videos after the DIF, sign up for a free My DIF account. Along with other benefits, you’ll get an extra 30 days of DIF On Demand once the DIF has ended.
