Global Goals Jam Hong Kong 2020

Global Goals Jam Hong Kong 2020

In 2015, the United Nations declared the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and actions to achieve the SDGs are being taken around the world. The Global Goals Jam is a global initiative to contribute people’s creative ideas and power to the SDGs.

The Global Goals Jam (GGJ) is a 2-day international workshop for citizens to think about sustainability from a global perspective and generate ideas for local solutions to problems in order to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In the 2-day workshop, participants create services, products and ideas that tackle SDG challenges. The Global Goals Jam started in 2016 and has held more than 200 jams, with more than 7,000 participants and more than 1,000 ideas generated.

GGJ is a global initiative where people from all walks of life – designers, programmers, engineers, researchers and citizens – bring their creative ideas and power to contribute to the SDGs. The results of the Global Goals Jam will be published on the Internet under a Creative Commons license and will become the shared knowledge of the world.

In 2020, we will hold an online workshop in Hong Kong, Tokyo and Kyoto.

  • Those interested in the global trends on the SDGs
