Global Goals Jam 2017 Design 2030 Now!


Project information

During the 2015 Social Good Summit, world leaders adopted the Sustainable Development Goals. In 109 locations around the world, people discussed these 17 Global Goals and what they would mean for their lives. This year we will take action, once again. We, the United Nations Development Programme  and MediaLAB Amsterdam (Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences), are inviting you to join the 2nd edition of the #GlobalGoalsJam. Join us to design interventions for the Sustainable Development Goals that matter most to you. Connecting Today, Creating Tomorrow. Let's #Design2030Now!

The #GlobalGoalsJam 2017 is a two day event consisting of short design sprints. Creative teams of designers, developers and Jammers from the local community work together using a tailored toolkit. Together, we will create interventions aimed at short term targets in support of the long term goals. 

This year 28 locations around the world with 800 participants will focus on 5 of the 17 Global Goals which are:

  • No Poverty
  • No Hunger
  • Good Health
  • Quality Education
  • Sustainable Cities and Communities

One of the 28 locations this year is Enschede! The event will take place on Friday the 15th and Saturday the 16th of September in the DesignLab. Do you want to change the world and participate in making it a better place?  For more information go to If you want the sign-up go to
