New for your Jam calendar...

The next jam dates are fixed! Global GovJam will be Jamming public services with citizens, public employees, innovation folks and more from 16-21 November 2021. And Global Service Jam, the biggest and boldest of our Jams, will take off on a weekend to be announced in March 2022.
Global Jams collaborate with worldwide "No Waste Challenge"

Global Jams collaborate with worldwide "No Waste Challenge"

This year at the Jam we have come together with What Design Can Do and their No Waste Challenge for our March event. Depending on how Jammers interpret the Secret Theme of the Global Service Jam, a Jam project can become a great springboard into the No Waste Challenge. And... if a Jam Team want to explore taking their project further, they might get together after the Jam, evolve their project, and enter it into the No Waste Challenge in April. There is a great opportunity to make their evolved Jam prototype into reality – with funding, publicity and a development programme co-created with Impact Hub!

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.
