Cologne Service Jam 2019
48 hours to change the world using Service Design
Join us in Cologne on 29-31 March 2019 to develop innovative concepts and prototype services inspired by a secret global theme.
During the 3-days Jam you will explore ways to change the world around you and try out a service design-based approach to problem solving and creativity. The Service Jam is a great place to learn – or get better at – service design methodology and equip yourself with tools and methods, which can be applied to any project.
Come expand your knowledge, learn from fellow jammers and develop your service design skills!

What is a Jam?
Global Jams are design focussed innovation events, which happen three times per year (Service Jam, Sustainability Jam and Gov Jam), where jammers in up to 100 cities around the world work simultaneously for up to 48 hours to create and prototype completely new services, products or initiatives inspired by a secret global theme. At the end of a Jam, the collection of insights and prototypes developed are published online to the world. Read more here.
