Big changes at #GSJam in March 2019!

The world's biggest design focussed innovation event is back, and it's going to be better than ever! Join the Global Service Jam in more than 100 cities worldwide on thelast weekend* of March, 2019!

After 8 successful years, it's time to take the #GSJam to the next level, so look out for some exciting changes this year. The Jam will always be the best event in the world for people who want to try out a design-based approach to problem solving and creativity. But this year we will be adding an expert track to make the Jam more attractive to experienced practitioners of design thinking, service design, innovation and user experience...

So there will be new levels of Jamming – but with the same energy and fun of #doingnottalking!

We will start accepting locations in mid-October. So if you are an experienced Jam Host, start building your team and looking for partners. If you are new, read this easy guide which will answer most of your questions. Then watch this page, the Jam Facebook page, Twitter and Instagram for the signal to sign up! And get help at any time from help@globalservicejam.org!

See you at the Jam!

* That's 29-31 March in most countries. Jams in countries with other weekends (mostly Muslim countries and Israel) have the option of starting earlier... contact us for details BEFORE you plan your Jam!  ;)

Congratulations to everyone who took part in the 2019 Global Service Jam! Across four days and 19 timezones, Jammers at 124 locations on six continents researched, ideated and prototyped around a shared Surprise Theme. Led by amazing volunteers, they made new friends, tried new skills and learned new ways of solving problems. As they worked, they shared their progress, publishing well over 500 prototypes of brand new services as thousands of people each gave 48 hours to change the world.
