If your answer is YES, the Jam is a really good opportunity to doing and not talking.
Budapest Sustainability Jam is a face-to-face, high-energy, global design event where you have 48 hours to save the world.
On November 22, 2013, people interested in a design-based approach to creativity will meet at locations all over the globe. Everyone is welcome – service designers, object designers, sustainability experts, professors, business people, teachers, hackers. They will have 48 hours to create brand-new real-world ideas which can make that little difference. Or perhaps a big difference – it’s up to them.
Let’s see how is the Jam feeling!
Through the weekend, the participants from Budapest will be linked to other jammers at other sites all over the globe, working in different ways on different answers to the same challenge, sharing problems, advice, and insights. And on Sunday at 3pm, they will publish their results to the world. At the moment 56 cities will participate in Global Sustainability Jam this year! It’s cool, right?
Multidisciplinary teams of 4-6 persons will start to work in the same topic which is right now a secret. They will be guided by the mentors and have to opportunity to try the method of Design Thinking during their work. We will have brainstorming, research, photo safari, prototyping, testing and presentations.
