New dates! Get ready for a great year of Jamming

As we Jam we keep learning, and part of learning means trying new things. Experienced Jammers will have noticed some changes at the last few Jams; like a new upload platform, website and back-office structure, and the new Deep Jam for experienced Jammers. The next Global Jams will continue along this path of learning and experimenting as we reach for a wider audience. Here are some dates for your calendar!

AUGUST 2019: #GSusJam online Jam-Jam

After some quiet years, the Global Sustainability Jam has been resting since 2017. But will it rest for ever? We want your help to find out. So in the first weekend of August 2019 we will hold our first “virtual” JamJam with a clear focus on the #GSusJam. This will not be a sustainability jam; it will be an online event when we explore ways to make the #GSusJam more meaningful. Join us as individuals or teams from anywhere in the world as we Jam the Jam! Watch for more information on this homepage and on the Global Sustainability Jam Facebook page.

OCTOBER 2019: Global GovJam

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. This will bring a few other changes around the Secret Theme and more, so we look forward to an exciting new experience. The next Global GovJam will take place between the 18th and 24th of October 2019. Sign up your #GGovJam location now.

MARCH 2020: the 10th Global Service Jam

Our biggest, bravest Jam will continue the recipe for success as it moves into its tenth edition on the weekend of the 20th March, 2020. Can we beat our 2019 record of 124 cities?  Sign up your #GSJam location now.

You Jammed the #GSJam 2019!

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.
The energy is up, and the Jam is ON!
