This is the video which started the Jam this weekend in over 90 locations worldwide. Made by the Global HQ team – this year based within the Porto Jam community – and other helpers from round the world, it introduced the Secret Theme and some tips on Jamming to many first timers, and many expert Jammers.

It's just a few minutes now until the first Global Service Jam participants of 2017 learn the Secret Theme.  For the next few days, thousands of Jammers all over the world will use that Theme to kick off 48 hours of working with strangers, identifying needs, building prototype solutions and testing them, and sharing their work with the world. And as they do it, they will be learning new tools, experiencing new ways to work, changing the world – and having a great time.
 
If you are Jamming, good luck! If not, follow the Jam with the hashtag #GSJam – or click on the social media tab above. It's amazing to see the world Jam!
 
JAM ON!
