About this Event

Want to be a part of designing solutions to the United Nations 17 sustainable goals? Join us in a Global Hackathon, where over 70 cities around the world come together to tackle sustainability!

To collaborate, we need to engage in a way that goes beyond talking, towards making and creating, in a space for people from all backgrounds who bring in their local knowledge, ensuring a bottom-up, grassroots approach.This is why we started the Jam: a 2 day event to engage makers and designers to contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals by creating short-term interventions with long-term impact. More than an event, it is a network of cities and organisations that are excited to engage their local communities to create real impact for the Global Goals.
