But why should I participate?

As a participant in the Global Sustainability Jam, you will work through a whole development process in one weekend. You won't just be talking about design or sustainability, you will be working with others on developing concrete ideas and designs which could become real.

  • Whether you are experienced or completely new to the field, you will learn more about a design-based approach to problems, and about sustainability.
  • You will pick up a load of new ideas and work practices.
  • You will meet a lot of cool people at all levels of experience.
  • Your work and ideas will be reviewed by your peers, and presented to the world, where they can be seen by potential customers or employers, or by people who could make them real.
  • You will create something that might make a real difference.
  • You might get rich and famous.
  • You will certainly have a blast.
