The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and MediaLAB Amsterdam, are presenting the
2nd edition of the #GlobalGoalsJam.
We are all looking for design/ prototype interventions for the Sustainable Development Goals
(SDG’s) and ask for local challenges that matter to you & your partner organisations.
In 2017 the Global Goals Jam will take place all over the world from the 15th till the 17th of
Connecting Today, Creating Tomorrow. Let's #Design2030Now!
The #GlobalGoalsJam is a two-day event consisting of human centered design sprints. Creative
teams located all over the world, consisting of designers, experts, developers, and other creatives,
work together on SDG-challenges, using a tailored (user centered design) toolkit. The teams create
interventions aimed at short term targets in support of the long term goals. In 2016, 17 cities joined
and over 500 creators, experts and designers developed concepts, ideas and prototypes. To organize
this, the UN reached out to the (service) design field to bring in their expertise in multidisciplinary
problem-solving and human centered design methodology.
