About this Event

Want to be a part of designing solutions to the United Nations 17 sustainable goals? Join us in a Global Hackathon, where over 70 cities around the world come together to tackle sustainability!

To collaborate, we need to engage in a way that goes beyond talking, towards making and creating, in a space for people from all backgrounds who bring in their local knowledge, ensuring a bottom-up, grassroots approach.This is why we started the Jam: a 2 day event to engage makers and designers to contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals by creating short-term interventions with long-term impact. More than an event, it is a network of cities and organisations that are excited to engage their local communities to create real impact for the Global Goals.

The Global Goals Jam will be presented in a video at the UN Climate Week in New York.

We want to create real impact, going beyond the Jam. Best ideas could join an incubator and/or internal innovation programs of our corporate partners. There will also the ability to launch subsequent initiatives post event involving the community, non-for-profit and corporate leveraging the Communiteer Platform

CHALLENGES

The Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs) that the Sydney Jam will tackle includes:

Water (Goal #6) & Climate Change ( Goal #13)

How might we empower communities to reduce their water footprint so that Australia responds more rapidly and effectively to climate change?

Responsible Consumption and Production, E-Waste (Goal #12)

How Might we empower communities to better manage their e-waste so that we reduce the pollution of soil and water ?

Participants will join teams and choose one of the above to solve for.
