• What is the DIF?

    A three­-week online event that brings together thought-leaders, entrepreneurs, business, designers, makers and learners to explore and respond to the changing economy. Find out more about the DIF here.


  • Where is the DIF taking place?

    Most sessions take place online at thinkdif.co, and are therefore accessible globally, wherever you are. The individual page for each session will tell you how and when to join - sometimes it's as simple as pressing 'play', or for some of the more interactive sessions you may be asked to join via a plug in such as WebEx Event Center. For most sessions, you'll be able to join on any device, from your computer to a tablet or smartphone.


    As well as these virtual elements of the schedule, there are physical events taking place too. If one of these is taking place near you and you'd like to attend, you'll need to register via the session page in advance.


    If the session is taking place online you will need to go back to the session page at the specified time at date - we recommend signing up for the DIF so that you can star your favourite sessions or add sessions you’d like to see to your own calendar, located on your My DIF page.


  • I have tried to sign-up but not received a verification email.

    The email will have been sent straight away, 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 for more than one Open Mic session?

    Yes, please contact the DIF team via the email address at the bottom of this page.


  • 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?

    You can watch over 30 DIF sessions here.


    All DIF sessions are available during the DIF itself, which was from 7-25 November in 2016. If you want longer to enjoy the videos, register to become a DIF Member - along with other benefits, you’ll get an extra 30 days of catch-up once the DIF has ended. *Catch-up of the 300+ DIF 2016 sessions has now ended. 


  • Can I get a referral code for my university?

    We want to share DIF sessions with as many people as possible and so to help encourage your students, staff, alumni and friends to sign up for the DIF we are running a competition. The university which has the most people who register using their code will win an Ultimaker 3D printer. Contact us via the email address at the bottom of this page if you would like a code for your university.
