Big Jam Weekend 8th August 2020!

After a few brave cities Jammed remotely back in March, it’s soon time for the “Big Jam Weekend”.  This is what you need to know:

  • The main focus of the #GSJam 2020 will be the weekend of the 8th of August. Most local Jams have already confirmed this date. Thanks!

  • In this exceptional year, some Jams will take place on different weekends for local reasons, but we hope as many Jams as possible will join us on the 8th of August weekend. The 8.8. weekend is the Big Jam!

  • We expect that local Jams will be a mix of offline, online and online-offline events. Local Hosts will choose the best option for their circumstances.  All Jams will have the same timeframe and Secret Theme, and will publish their prototypes on the same sharing platform.

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.
