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.
