BIG POTATOES: The London Manifesto for Innovation is a contribution to improving the climate for innovation globally, authored by Norman Lewis, Nico Macdonald, Alan Patrick, Martyn Perks, Mitchell Sava and James Woudhuysen. We want your responses to the Manifesto.
James Woudhuysen is speaking in the ‘Future of Innovation’ event organised by KTN Ltd as part of The Disruptive Innovation Festival. James will be debating circular business models with Mat Hunter of the Central Research Laboratory (formerly Chief Design Officer at the Design Council). Other debates are on manufacturing and social and environmental challenges, and whether people need to take responsibility for their own health. The Disruptive Innovation Festival is curated by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation and brings together thought-leaders, entrepreneurs, businesses, makers, learners and doers around broad themes, ‘to catalyse system-level change for a future economy’. It takes place over three weeks from 2–20 November; many events are Webcast and also available to view post hoc.
