What's the Global Goals Jam about?
Initiated in 2016 by the Digital Society School with support from the UNDP,
the Global Goals Jam is a two-day design sprint where teams of multidisciplinary participants work together on Global Goals-related local challenges. It has grown from 17 participating cities in 2016 to over 85 in 2019. Thousands of change makers have used the Global Goals Jam methodology and are now part of this growing learning community around the SDGs.
Who can participate?
The Global Goals Jam brings together individual change makers with forward-looking companies and governmental institutions.
WHAT PARTICIPANTS SAY
What I liked the most about the Jam was its hands on approach - getting out of the building on a rainy afternoon to test out our assumptions by talking to strangers in the streets of Berlin was freaking incredible!

WHAT PARTNERS SAY
It's impressive to come up with so many learnings in 2 days. The team that worked on our challenge created a great prototype and challenged our assumptions. The Jam organizers continued to support us with connections post event - and we're collaborating with the facilitator that led our Jam talents through the process!
