What the heck is a Sustainability Jam?


The Global Sustainability Jam is a 48hr event where people come together in cities around the globe to prototype new products and services around the theme of Sustainability. 


Jams are about meeting cool people in your town, practicing some design-based problem solving methods and most importantly, having fun!

You don't need to be 'creative' or have experience with service design to Jam. In fact we encourage people without these things to join us. You'll be supported throughout the weekend by designers as well as your hosts, but the setup of a Jam is - it's up to you! You can get out of it what you put in.

Why Jam? 

 

The great thing about a jam is there are no boundaries.

Design professionals will be able to try new methods and tools that they might not be able to use in day-to-day client projects. Students will learn more about the design process and respective methods and design newbees will get a glimpse at what user-centered design is all about.

We encourage anyone who wants learn more about creative approaches to problem solving and sustainability to join us.
