Sustainability Drinks – Designing for Sustainability

November 3, 2016 @ 8:00 PM - 11:30 PM


Designing for Sustainability – Roles & Responsibility of Design

Being at the core of product development, maybe no other discipline can drive change better than Design. When it comes to topics like waste of resources, toxic materials, growing energy demand and climate change, designers also face a new responsibility. This event will shed some light on the opportunities, challenges and the general role of design for a sustainable future.

Join us on on the 3rd of November at betahaus to learn, discuss and be inspired.


Our Speakers will be

Eric Pfromm

Industrial Designer and Co-Founder of BFGF Design Studios Hamburg. He is certified cradle-to-cradle® Design-Consultant and Member of Kompetenznetzwerk Umweltfreundliche Produktentwicklung, Hamburg.


Tim Janßen

Tim is CEO of Cradle to Cradle e.V. He is an economist with a focus on founding, innovation management and responsible economic activities.


You will have the opportunity to give a 1-min quickpitch and tell the audience why they should talk to you tonight. If you are interested, please submit your details here:

OSCEdays OpenLabs

The OSCEdays Open Labs are a three week long open participatory online & offline process to develop and implement practical actions to research and create a circular city in cities across the globe. The OSCEdays Open Labs are a collaboration of the Open Source Circular Economy Days (OSCEdays) and the Disruptive Innovation Festival (DIF), an open online festival on the Circular Economy happening from November 7-25, 2016 for the 3rd time.

We have created an easy format to accomplish clear results and connect people around the world for productive collaboration: Contributors and Teams can write “ACTION Recipes” for different specific topics, and participants from different cities can implement these ACTIONS in local events happening in the last week of the Labs.

MealSaver - The app to save food from being wasted

With the MealSaver app, consumers are able to purchase food from restaurants that would have gone to waste shortly before closing. This enables the reduction of food waste, the access to high quality food for users and an ultimate experience linked to unknown discovery in a city.
