Through the Disruptive Innovation Festival (DIF), the Ellen MacArthur Foundation showcases the ideas and innovations disrupting the future of the global economy.

The DIF is an online platform which aims to shift mindsets and inspire action towards a circular economy. It invites people to share disruptive ideas and stories on a number of topics, and attracts a worldwide audience, sparking critical conversations and participation through a combination of live interviews, films, and podcasts.



The DIF shares disruptive ideas and stories on a number of topics to spark conversations with a global audience.

Follow sessions online each November, followed by a catch-up period. You can watch selected sessions from previous years via the Watch Page.

Types of sessions include: DIF Films - high quality video productions, DIF Podcasts - a podcast or series of podcasts, DIF Studio - sessions from the Ellen MacArthur Foundation studio and DIF on Air - sessions streamed via Google Hangouts.
