• Global Goals Jam Munich

    A challenging and exciting weekend to push your creativity, knowledge and skills to their limits: the Global Goals Jam is coming to Munich!

    This year is the first time that the Global Goals Jam is taking place in Munich. The two-day #GlobalGoalsJam was developed by the UNDP and Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences and has since then taken place in more than 40 cities on five continents.

    You will work in a small team of designers, developers and other creatives on creating local interventions aimed at short term targets in support of the long-term sustainable development goals. A team of motivated and skilled mentors will support your process with Design-Thinking Methods and critical thinking.

    At the same time creative teams from all over the world will parallely work together on local challenges, using a tailored toolkit provided by Digital Society School. Last year over 45 cities joined, and more than 1200 creators and designers developed concepts, ideas and prototypes for the Global Goals.

    We invite you to expand your network and learn about design thinking methods in a weekend packed with engaging design sprints. As a participant, you and your team will create solutions aimed at this year's global themes:

    • Water and Climate Change (SDG 4, SDG 13)
    • Migration (SDG 10, SDG 16)
    • Electronic Waste (SDG 12)
    • Sustainable Development for People and Planet (SDG 1, SDG 8)
