The biggest, oldest and boldest of the three Jams, the #GSJam appeals to everyone interested in a design-based approach to change. With its broad appeal, it’s a great place to learn – or get better at – a whole set of design tools, methods and mindsets, which can be applied to any project. Or for experienced participants, the unique Deep Jam challenge lets you test your skills against the clock, and against your peers on five continents. With over 120 Jam locations all over the world, you won’t have to look far to find a Jam site. Or why not start your own?
What was our challenge the the previous year? Here you go, the secret theme for the Classic Jam 2019 was:
For this Global Service Jam we decided to add a new track to the mix of the Jam to (re-)attract more experienced Jammers with a challenging question that the world really needs an answer for. This became our "Deep Jam pilot". The secret theme – The Big Question – was: How can we design out plastic waste from our everyday life as citizens and consumers?
Instead of a theme video, the Deep Jam came with a 30-page Jammers Research Starting Pack. This pack was designed to help Jammers to explore the problem of plastic waste, and start to make sense of it from their local perspective. It supported them to ask the right questions and find answers.
