Sydney Sustainability Jam 2012 – Everyone is welcome
48 Hours to SAVE the world!
On November 2, 2012, people interested in a design-based approach to creativity will meet at locations all over the globe.
Everyone is welcome to be part of it – service designers, accountants, sustainability experts, strategists, investors, researchers, journalists, teachers, ecologists, hackers, makers, artists, permaculturists, students, musicians, kids, mums and grandpas – you will all form teams and work together for 48 hours to create brand-new real-world ideas which can make that little difference.
Or perhaps a big difference – it’s up to you.
Through the weekend, you’ll be linked to other jammers at other sites all over the globe, working in different ways on different answers to the same challenge, sharing problems, advice, and insights. And on Sunday at 3pm, you will publish your results to the world.
What will happen?
We’ll kick off on Friday night with some introductions, explanations, inspiration, administration and the theme for the Global Jam. A drink but an early night.
We’ll meet again on Saturday morning to start the jam proper. This will take place at the UNSW Design Labs in Kensington. We’ll establish some challenges or opportunities to jam on and gather in working groups. We want the questions we’re asking to be real, so that the outcome will be useful and usable.
The groups will then set about jamming on the task together. There’ll be a service designer in each group to facilitate as much as is required. In a jam there’s no hierarchy, just a team collaborating.
Groups will self organise but everyone must have their presentations ready to go at 3pm Sunday. You may choose to jam late into the night, or call it before the sun goes down and pick it up well rested for the second day.
During the jam the organisers will provide healthy food, lots of water, stationary of all kinds, someone to ask questions of and lots of encouragement.
