Together with UNDP

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), otherwise known as the Global Goals, are a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity.

In 2016, United Nations Development Programme approached Digital Society School to create a collaboration that connected the design community with the Sustainable Development Goals. Using our expertise in Design Methods and international, cross cultural collaboration, we designed a process that empowers people to create direct impact for the global goals, solving local challenges relevant to their own context.

Our partnership with Digital Society School in the Global Goals Jam facilitates a way to take real action. People all over the world can see and learn from each other's work, as well as create impact.
