Through the Disruptive Innovation Festival (DIF), the Ellen MacArthur Foundation showcases the ideas and innovations disrupting the future of the global economy. The DIF facilitates a digital conversation among designers, startups, academics, economists and innovators to explore the most disruptive trends, underpinned by the principles of the circular economy. Hosted almost exclusively online, the DIF is a three-week long online festival of ideas, which is free to watch for a global audience. 

The DIF has showcased disruption across a wide range of sectors and topic areas during the past four years, with speakers joining from Europe, the US, Latin America, SouthEast Asia, Sub-Saharan Africa and many other parts of the world.
