WeTurn is a Scenario for a participative web-based platform for feeding materials back into various cascading circular material flows. At the same time it is a network which allows users and companies to contribute and use knowledge, in order to deal with different material or service cycles.

The WeTurn-scenario was developed by Max Fabian 2014 as a thesis (find it below). It received consultations from EPEA the cradle to cradle institute and was already discussed with representatives from the chemical industry in germany.

WeTurn is now the basis and starting point for further ideas, discussions and development of scenarios for a circular economy built on participation, transparency and openness under the roof of the IPO tables project. With WeTurn we explore communication tools, business models and product as well as service designs for an open source fuelled circular economy.

Das WeTurn-Szenario wurde von Max Fabian 2014 als Teil einer Abschlussarbeit entwickelt (Link zu Arbeit und Einbettung oben auf der Seite). Die Arbeit erhielt Beartung von EPEA – dem Cradle to Cradle Institut – und wurde auch schon mit einigen Repräsentanten der chemischen Industrie Deutschlands diskutiert.

WeTurn ist jetzt der Ausgangspunkt unter dem Dach von IPO tables für die Entwicklung und Diskussion weiterer Ideen und Szenarien für eine Kreislaufwirtschaft basierend auf Partizipation, Transparenz und Openness. Unter WeTurn soll es um Kommunikationswerkzeuge, Geschäftsmodelle und Produkt- sowie Servicedesigns für eine Kreislaufwirtschaft angetrieben mit den Potentialen von Open Source gehen.
