WDO and Global Goals Jam are inviting the global industrial design community to explore local challenges and identify ways design can help to ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns by doing more and better with less.

A Mini-Jam toolkit has been prepared to help craft Mini-Jam events over an afternoon, or a full day, depending on the methods used and how deeply people want to dive in. Depending on time, workspace and the networks, a Mini-Jam can be customised to be a simple event or an elaborate activity.

The goal is to is bringing together people from different disciplines and backgrounds, to create a conversation and collaboration that includes multiple perspectives. The first part focuses on identifying a local challenge, the second part is to assess the possible impact of the challenge.

 

Global Goals Jam is an initiative established in 2016 by the Digital Society School in the Netherlands. #GlobalGoalsJam is a two-day event empowering people to create direct impact on the Global Goals by solving local challenges.

World Industrial Design Day (WIDD) is an international day celebrated throughout the world in recognition of the establishment of the World Design Organization on 29 June. First declared in 2007 on the organisation’s fiftieth anniversary, WIDD increases awareness of the industrial design profession and champions the power of design to strengthen economic, social, cultural, and environmental development.

The industrial design community marks the day with activities such as panel discussions, workshops, design competitions, exhibits, gallery installations and networking events.
