Digital Society Survey

Want to be part of shaping the digital society of the future? We are running a survey to better understand the state of the Digital Society today and we’d love to have your insights for this! Participants can even win prizes!

DSS Survey

The #GlobalGoalsJam is a two day event consisting of short design sprints. Creative teams of designers, developers and Jammers from the local community work together using a tailored toolkit. Together, we will create interventions aimed at short term targets in support of the long term goals. Do you want to join a global community of change-makers, ranging from Rio de Janeiro, Accra, Copenhagen to Amman, Delhi, Fukuoka and more? Join us to Design 2030 Now!

Join our 20 Week Program!

Want to work on the sustainable development goals for more than just a weekend? An internship at Digital Society School will open up a world of opportunities. You’ll be part of a vibrant interdisciplinary group during a semester and have unique access to a network of experts in the field.

Jam Kit

The Global Goals Jam Kit includes: guidelines for local organizers, teams and coaches, design methods and templates, event posters and possible challenges. We are updating the Kit for 2018 as we speak. To get an idea, see here what was in the Kit last year.

Design 2030 Now

The United Nations Development Programme and the Digital Society School (Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences), are inviting you to join the 3rd edition of the #GlobalGoalsJam. Join us to design interventions for the Sustainable Development Goals that matter most to you. Let’s #Design2030Now! Check out the map below to join a Jam near you! Want to know a bit more details? Check out our info package. Our main sign-up deadline has closed, so we don’t send any physical kits anymore – but you can still join and print the kit yourself. Or shoot us a message at the bottom of this page if you want to join next year!

Vision Global Goals Jam

We believe that interdisciplinary teams can boost their creativity by using design methods. We believe in the value of sharing and building on each others’ knowledge. We believe in agile and iterative design. We believe in tackling big (global) issues by taking small (local) steps.
