The challenges before us are so complex that no single discipline, mindset, or expertise will be able to solve them. To address social challenges globally, we need to collaborate and learn from local ideas and solutions that are being developed across the globe. And to collaborate, we need to engage in a way that goes beyond talking, towards making and creating, in a space for people from all backgrounds who bring in their local knowledge, ensuring a bottom-up, grassroots approach.
This is why we started the Global Goals Jam; we believe that interdisciplinary teams can boost their creativity and impact by using design methods. We believe in the value of sharing and building on each others’ knowledge. We believe in agile and iterative design. We believe in tackling big (global) issues by taking small (local) steps
