RULES BACKGROUND A Jam is a cooperative gathering of people interested in service design. It is there to encourage experimentation and innovation – participants come together without a team, without a service idea and are given a subject or theme to incorporate in their new-to-the-world service while meeting new people. The Global Sustainability Jam is a community of Jams taking place internationally over the same weekend. All the Jams share the same starting themes, and publish their local results over a central platform. The theme and constraints for participants in the Global Sustainability Jam will be announced not before 6:30PM (local time) on the Friday, and results must be shared by 3:00pm (local time) on the Sunday. Each local group has freedom to structure and manage the Jam to fit their local situation and needs. A few rules are in place for Organisers and Participants; if you want your Jam to be part of the Global event, you will need to follow these. Besides these rules, we hope that local teams will follow many of our recommendations so that we share a common experience and everyone can work on a level playing field. Rules for participants * Collaborate with new people: lease do not come to the Jam with a team. Everyone will have some time to think and pitch an idea. Collaborate with new friends or peers you admire. * Be on time : Please show up to the jam on time. * Use your own tools : Participants will normally use their own tools, including hardware, software, communications and stationery. If you need a computer and certain software, make sure you have it pre-loaded on your computer. * Sign up: individual and team . All participants need to sign up to the Global Sustainability Jam website and add themselves, their team and their project to the project database. * (Optional) Be part of the conversation : We strongly encourage to be part of the online community. For the global communication amongst participants we use Twitter. Please add #GSusJam to your tweets. Rules on intellectual property * All results are owned by the individual design team * All services, ideas, art, code and concepts made during the Global Sustainability Jam are owned by the members of the team that developed them (not the local Jam or the Global organizers). This includes all aspects of intellectual property, such as patents, trademarks, designs and copyright. In the cooperative spirit of a jam, there are often many people helping one another. All members of the team are held to standard industry practices of collaboration, including appropriate acknowledgements to parties (also in other teams) who may have contributed. The design team is free to develop their ideas commercially after the Jam, but the results of the Jam itself must be open, as below. * All results have to be published and archived on the Global Sustainability Jam website under Creative Commons licence * All participants of the Global Sustainability Jam will allow the documentation of their service to be archived on the Global Sustainability Jam website in the form it was submitted at the end of the jam. Participants may ask to have an update of the documents posted with notice of version information. All works will be licenced under Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial-Share Alike 3.0 (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/3.0/). * No pre-made content : The Global Sustainability Jam prohibits the use of pre-made content (this includes graphic designs, processes, models, audio, program code, etc.) unless it was publicly available at least a month prior to the jam. Please also make sure that if you use pre-made content you use content with a appropriate licence (CC or public licence). * All materials can be used for demonstration: All materials made at the Global Sustainability Jam can be used for demonstration and lecture at conferences, schools or industry venues with the expressed discretion of the Global Sustainability Jam and Work Play Experience. * Have fun! As an initiative of Work Play Experience, the Global Sustainability Jam is designed to be fun, and we are trying to keep things simple. The best rule of thumb is that teams should not illegally exploit others' intellectual property, and that in turn, everything we create becomes part of the public domain. Participants agree by their participation in the Global Sustainability Jam that they will hold no-one liable for any loss or damage. Rules for organizers To add your location to the official list of Global Sustainability Jam sites, you will need to agree to the following set of rules: · Be open The event must be open to everyone – be it designers, business people, students of design or business, or anyone interested in service and customer experience. It must also be open to the press. · Be non-Profit The Global Sustainability Jam is concieved as a non-profit event to promote the young discipline of service design. Thus, all locations are strongly encouraged to keep the cost for the participants as low as possible, so everyone – especially students and unemployed people – can afford to take part. A small fee however has proven to be efficient to make registrations more reliable (people who’ve paid usually turn up). Depending on what you offer, we’ve seen pricing for similar events range from 10 EUR to 60 EUR per person for the whole weekend (the latter also included basic supply of food). · Agree to police participants rules The organizers agree to make sure the Global Sustainability Jam rules for participants rules are followed (see below). · Be part of the organizers community At least one organizer from each location must be take part in all email correspondence with the global organisers, participate in the Base Camp and make sure that all due dates and deadlines are met. · Publish your event on the Global Sustainability Jam website All locations participating in the Global Sustainability Jam will need a profile on the Global Sustainability Jam website. · Handle registration and communications with your participants. You might want to set up a super-slick web platform, or use Facebook, or write names the back of a napkin. It's up to you. · Keep deadlines There only are a few deadlines. But these are vital for the whole concept: publish the theme and restrictions not before Friday 18:30 (local time) and close active development on Sunday 15:00 (local time, when the uploading should have started). · Provide site contact during the jam (phone and internet) The fun part of a global event is that you’re not alone but have a community to share your ideas with, or ask questions of at any time. The global team will be there for the whole 48 hours to answer your questions (or those of your participants). On the other side we need you to be reachable in case of changes to deadlines, technical problems etc. · Provide internet connectivity for the participants Many of your participants will need reasonably speedy internet connectivity. Make sure you have WiFi, or enough landline plug-ins for all participants. Sponsors might be able to help. · (Optional) Provide video streaming from your location
