On February 24-26th people who are interested in services and using a design-based approach to problem solving and creativity will meet all over the globe. This year we will host the Helsinki Jam event at Futurice – and we would like you to be a part of it!
Sign up for Helsinki Service Jam, Feb 24-26 2012 at
Location: Futurice, Vattuniemenranta 2, 00210 Helsinki
The event starts on February 24th at 4.30pm, and ends on Sunday Feb 26th at 5pm.
What is the Global Service Jam all about?
In a spirit of experimentation, co-operation, and friendly competition, teams all over the world will have 48 hours to develop brand new services inspired by a shared theme.
Last spring, 1263 Jammers in nearly 60 locations around the world took the Global Service Jam challenge for 48 hours. The result was 203 new service designs, a wealth of ideas, a library of prototypes, initiatives taken into action, a couple of new companies founded, and a great legacy in contacts made and inspiration shared. Now let’s do it again!
This is an opportunity for you to have a fun weekend, meet great people and learn from professionals in service design. Participants will team up to projects that they feel called by, and each project team will receive support from professional tutors. Every background is valuable, and no previous design experience needed. The only requirement is your motivation for creating better services for people.
To help us prepare enough coffee and snacks, please sign up as soon as possible, preferably by Friday 17th Feb!
