Open Source Circular Economy Days (OSCE Day)

Open Source Circular Economy is an embodiment of two concepts; open source applied to circular economy. It reposes on transparency, reuse, reducing waste, generating economic development and transforming what is waste from one product into the input for other products and services in a very scarce, vulnerable and degradable environment.

A global community called Open Source Circular Economy Days (OSCE days) promotes the use and exploration of open source practices for creating, socializing and distributing solutions globally to build local circular economies.
