GLOBAL SUSTAINABILITY JAM taking place in Köln!
Each year in Autumn, people interested in a design-based approach to creativity meet all around the globe in more than 40 cities for a weekend full of incredible fun to tackle environmental, social and economic problems and come up with sustainable solutions!
Everyone is welcome - service designers, object designers, sustainability experts, professors, business people, teachers, hackers, makers, artists, students, kids, mums and grandpas - you will form teams and work together for 48 hours to create brand-new real-world ideas which can make that little difference. Or perhaps a BIG difference - it's up to you.
