Global GovJam: a new festival format!

In 2019, #GGovJam will switch to a festival format over a whole week. Within that week, every local Jam can choose their own continuous 48 hour slot – perhaps on a weekend, on weekdays, or a combination of the two.
We hope this longer format will make it possible for different types of Jam to take place, making the #GGovJam even more meaningful for citizens and public servants. Of course the week-long Jam will mean a few other changes around the Secret Theme and more, so we look forward to developing an exciting new experience with all participants and hosts.
The next Global GovJam will take place between the 18th and 24th of October 2019. Sign up your location now.

You Jammed the #GSJam 2019!

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.
