Big changes at #GSJam in March 2019!

on Mon, 08/20/2018 - 16:53

The world's biggest design focussed innovation event is back, and it's going to be better than ever! Join the Global Service Jam in more than 100 cities worldwide on the last weekend* of March, 2019!

After 8 successful years, it's time to take the #GSJam to the next level, so look out for some exciting changes this year. The Jam will always be the best event in the world for people who want to try out a design-based approach to problem solving and creativity. But this year we will be adding an expert track to make the Jam more attractive to experienced practitioners of design thinking, service design, innovation and user experience...

So there will be new levels of Jamming – but with the same energy and fun of #doingnottalking!

We will start accepting locations in mid-September. So if you are an experienced Jam Host, start building your team and looking for partners. If you are new, read this easy guide which will answer most of your questions. Then watch this page, the Jam Facebook page, Twitter and Instagram for the signal to sign up! And get help at any time from help@globalservicejam.org!

See you at the Jam!

* 29-31 March in most countries. Jams in countries with other weekends (mostly Muslim countries and Israel) have the option of starting earlier... contact us for details!

Jammin' all over the World

The Global Service Jam is around halfway through, and although some wonderful Jams have already left us, many are still building up their activities.  At locations on six continents, first-timers and experts are getting out on the street to find real problems with real people. Then these "Jammers" move quickly past ideas to build interactve prototypes – challenging their assumptions and learning as they go.

If you can't be at one of the Jam sites all over the world but still want to enjoy the buzz, follow the amazing action on our Wonderful Wall of Jam, or the hashtag #GSJam.

JAM ON! The Global Service Jam 2018 is live!

It's just a few days to the Jam, and we are still welcoming new locations (Yes, you can still add a location to the Jam! Read our lightweight intro page or the FAQ to find out more).

Soon Hosts will be opening doors, Jammers will be arriving, meeting each other, seeing the Secret Theme, finding problems to address, signing up teams on Planet Jam, hitting the streets to research, generating ideas, building prototypes, and sharing them with the world...  At the same time, they will be learning news skills, making new friends, finding new collaborators and having a great weekend!  Because #thisiswhywejam!

See you there! :)  Or if you can't make it, follow the Jam on social media with the hashtag #GSJam!
