It’s over, folks, it’s over. As our ever-smiling friends in Oakland hit their upload deadline, the Global Sustainability Jam 2013 is no longer LIVE. #GSusJam is over folks. It's over. It was amazing, thrilling, hard, hard work. But it's over.
We look forward to browsing through the designs, and fixing the last few upload glitches. But for now, after a pretty sleepless weekend, your Global Team is heading for bed.
And we need to introduce those incredible, generous people from GlobalHQ who gave up their own weekends, mostly to sit alone by a computer, supporting you on the Planet Jam and
Every year, local Jams kick off by revealing the Secret Theme, usually by showing a video, which also contains Tips and advice for Jammers. This year's Secret Theme Video was made by international Jammer of mystery Mauro Rego. Thanks to Mauro and his contributors!
Every Jam is different, but every Jam is a great place to learn new skills, challenge yourself and meet great people while you have fun. See what London Jammers said about Jamming in this great movie by Joshua Lee.
It's certain - there will be a Global Sustainability Jam in 2013!On the tail of the latest amazing Global Service Jam (our sister event which took place in a whopping 124 cities!), Jam initiators Markus and Adam confirmed that GSusJ13 will take place in October or November 2013! As soon as the exact date is announced, we will start accepting sites. Until then, watch this space.And, if you can't wait until October or November, check out www.govjam.org.

WOW! What an amazing Jam! We're too exhausted to write much just now; just to say THANKS to EVERYONE who made this Jam happen.
The SUPPORTERS and sponsors who made the Jam possible in many locations, and enriched it everywhere. They didn't have to do that - we appreciate it! The HOSTS who worked so hard - before, during and after those crazy 48 hours. You are so amazing, we are so lucky to have you. And especially the JAMMERS who came, stayed, and gave their energy, creativity and HEART to make this Jam come alive! Personally at Global HQ we want to thank...
