Be part of a worldwide movement

The Global Goals Jam is a 2-day hands-on worldwide event, happening simultanously in different cities across the globe. You will meet and work with students and professionals to ideate, brainstorm and prototype ideas based on the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals.

More than an event, it is a network of cities and organisations that are excited to engage their local communities to create real impact for the Global Goals.

DesignLab invites students and professors from all backgrounds to join forces, and come up with creative ideas to solve real-life problems. All the solutions will be submitted to the global network of the GlobalGoalsJam community.

Think Big. Start Small. Act Fast.
