2013 Oakland Sustainability Jam

This event has passed.

Interested in a design-based approach to creativity? Join us for the 2013 Oakland Sustainability Jam, the local edition of the Global Sustainability Jam, being held around the world the same weekend.

Everyone’s welcome – not only designers, but also planners and sustainability experts; students and academics; scientists and hackers; artists and makers; business people and entrepreneurs; and also just plain passionate, interested folks! You’ll form diverse teams and work together through the weekend to observe and learn, generate ideas, and prototype products, services, devices, systems, and more, all around the theme of sustainability.

The weekend will also include inspiring panel discussions and mini-workshops with leading thinkers in design and sustainability; mentorship and support from facilitators and experts in the field; connections with Jammers from around the world; and plenty of good food, great people, hard work, and most importantly, fun! Interested in being a sponsor or volunteer? Contact us by email. Register online.
