DESIGN 2030 NOW

During the 2015 Social Good Summit, world leaders adopted the Sustainable Development Goals. In 109 locations around the world, people discussed these 17 Global Goals and what they would mean for their lives. This year we will take action, once again. We, the United Nations Development Programme  and MediaLAB Amsterdam (Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences), are inviting you to join the 2nd edition of the #GlobalGoalsJam. Join us to design interventions for the Sustainable Development Goals that matter most to you. Connecting Today, Creating Tomorrow. Let's #Design2030Now!

GGJ2016

The #GlobalGoalsJam 2016 was a two day event consisting of short design sprints. Creative teams, with designers, developers and Jammers from the local community will work together using a tailored toolkit. The main goal of the Jam was to create interventions aimed at short term targets in support of the long term goals. Have a look at the official end-video on the right. Design 2030 Now!
