Are you interested in sustainability & design? Do you also enjoy working in interdisciplinary teams? Then this is your chance to participate in the Global Goals Jam 2021, register here.

On September 17 & 18 the Green Office HvA is organizing the Global Goals Jam in joint effort with the Digital Society School and the UNDP. During these two days participants worldwide will work in multidisciplinary teams, in order to create short- term interventions for local challenges using a design-thinking toolkit.

In this 2021 edition we focus on the topic of the century: Climate change. We have subcategorized this immense theme, into three sub-categories.

1. Climate Justice
How do we shift the focus on greenhouse gasses and melting ice caps into a civil rights movement with the people and communities most vulnerable to climate impacts at its core? How do we make sure that sustainability is not exclusive?

2. Beyond human-centered design
What will happen if non-human actors are our main priority in our design activities? How will design processes and ideas change when we take a nature-centered perspective?

3. Regenerative cities
How do we close the loops of our urban systems and communities? And how could we design our cities as ecological systems that are not only sustainable but also contribute to the economy as a whole?

Let’s partner up.
We’re always looking for partners who can support us in the organization, below are some examples as to how you can contribute. Reach out to exlore the benefits this partnership can bring you!
