Since 2016 you can join a jam every September to create sustainable impact for the Global Goals! In 2019, 90+ cities participated connecting over 5000 change-makers. This year, we'll be jamming from 18-20 September, sign up will open end of March!
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.
The Global Goals Jam is part of Design Across Cultures, a global chain of innovation. We are present in all continents. Curious to know who is organising a Jam this year? Sign-up opens end of March, so keep an eye on the website! In the meantime, take a look to see if you got what it takes to become an organiser yourself!
