The Disruptive Innovation Festival

November, 2015

The Disruptive Innovation Festival is curated by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation and in 2015 will take place over three weeks from 2nd - 20th November.

The DIF brings together thought-leaders, entrepreneurs, businesses, makers, learners and doers to catalyse system-level change for a future economy. Using a mix of online and face to face events, participants have an abundance of opportunities to explore the economy through a different lens to challenge the linear ‘take make and dispose’ model of the economy, replacing it by a more prosperous regenerative and circular economy.

AfriContent is proud to be an official collaborator of DIF2015 so that we can bring these important events to Africa and to encourage participation so that the African voice and perspective can be heard. These thought provoking events originate out of Europe and North America but are aimed at an International audience. With their live and interactive technology there is a real opportunity to expand the conversation and present the experience and perspectives from the many cultures across the African continent.

There is also a chance to win a 3 week Internship in the Ellen MacArthur Foundation in the UK by entering DIFAfriContent2015 as a University Referral code during registration. This prize will include the cost of one return economy flight, shared accommodation in a house and a small contribution towards living expenses while in Cowes. Please see www.thinkdif.co for terms and conditions.

AfriContent will highlight some of our most anticipated events on the Gapeli platform www.gapeli.org, but a full list of the 200+ events can be found on the event site at: www.thinkdif.co
