WHY A DESIGN JAM?
It’s a unique event that uses design thinking to enable creatives, experts and citizens to come together and find solutions to the climate problems of their city. The key problem statements will be built in consultation with partners so that a city’s key concerns are addressed. Participants will be tasked with creating some form of outcome in whatever format they choose, while using the themes and problem statement allotted to them under the guidance of a mentor (an expert from the problem area) within the duration of the jam. After this gathering, processes and results are shared at a local, national and global level [COP27] so that communities can build upon each other’s work.
