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.

A statement from Adam and Markus

After listening to many voices and different viewpoints, we have had to accept that sometimes even peaceful intentions can be misused. And that misuse can endanger the future of a platform for understanding and – more importantly – the wellbeing of its participants. Like so many countries, companies, sports associations, arts organisations, and the ICJ, we stand with the Ukrainian people and renounce Russian aggression. Therefore we will not be allowing or supporting Russian Jams at the 2022 Global Service Jam.
