Miami Sustainability Jam: October 30th-November 1st

Oct 26, 2015

48 Hours to Save the World! Miami jams with the world once again by going on a design thinking adventure with the Global Sustainability Jam. 

The Global Sustainability Jam is a 48-hour event where people come together in cities around the globe to create and prototype new products and services around the theme of Sustainability.

Jams are about meeting cool people in your community, practicing design thinking and creative problem-solving methods, and most importantly, having fun! You will learn design-based tools and skills you can apply to your business or any project. These tools are used by Apple, IBM, and other top-notch companies to drive innovation, delight customers, and reduce risk and project costs. In addition to being a fun event, it is excellent professional development. You don’t need to be ‘creative’ or have experience with design to Jam. In fact we encourage people without these things to join us. You’ll be supported throughout the weekend by your hosts and mentors. Get your ticket today! Space is limited. 
Follow the Global Sustainability Jam on Social Media with the hashtag #GSusJam and interact with passionate people across the world!
