*What is the Global Goals Jam?
The Global Goals Jam is a two-day workshop for international citizens to think about sustainability from a global perspective and generate ideas for solving local issues to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The Global Goals Jam started in 2016, and so far, more than 200 jams have been held, with more than 8,000 participants and more than 1,000 ideas generated.
It is a global-scale initiative where designers, programmers, engineers, researchers, citizens, and many others bring their creative ideas and strengths to contribute to the SDGs. The results of the Global Goals Jam will be public via the Internet under a Creative Commons license and will become shared knowledge for the world.
