Event description

Description


Do you have a passion for solving social challenges to improve lives? Join us and 85 cities around the world in the fourth edition of the #GlobalGoalsJam! This is a two day event where creative teams work together on local challenges related to the Global Goals. Participants use a special tailored toolkit, made in collaboration with DSS (Digital Society School) and UNDP (United Nations Development Programme), to create actionable solutions and to support the long term vision of Sustainable Development Goals for 2030.

4500 people, worldwide, all from diverse backgrounds, with different skills, come together to channel their creativity to create solutions for the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Now, you too have a chance. Global Goals Jam keeps bringing the best opportunities for changemakers, and those who want to contribute. You'll be guided to design for and with the SDGs through a specific design process, and the winning team gets an opportunity to pitch their creation on the SDG Action Day organised by the SDG Charter, on Tuesday 25 September.


In only two days you will

  • Learn from field experts

  • Learn to use a special design toolkit

  • Create social impact

  • Learn how to fall in love with the problem, not with a solution

  • Create objects and ideas that help to generate new insights on local challenges

  • Prototype ideas

  • Work in multidisciplinary teams

  • Do networking

  • Have a lot of fun

  • Receive a certificate of participation in the Global Goals Jam Amsterdam

  • Become part of a global network of changemakers.



This year participants in 85 locations worldwide will be creating solutions for

  • E-waste (SDG#12)

  • Migration ( SDG#10, SDG#16)

  • Sustainable development of People and Planet (SDG# 1, SDG #8)

  • Water and Climate Change (SDG# #6 SDG #13)
