The Global Goals Jam Canada Fall 2022 program is organized by the SDG Innovation Lab, Centre of Entrepreneurship, Centennial College with OSPE and Canadian Partners, and the support from UNDP and Digital Society School Amsterdam. It is a weekend program to contribute to the Global Goals by collaborating and building solutions to pressing social or business challenges and invoking the participation and engagement of students, entrepreneurs, designers, engineers, creative thinkers, and the public community. The program uses a design process and lean methodology to guide participants ensuring that any potential solutions actually solve the problem at hand.

This 2 ½-day program was developed to engage participating designers, engineers, developers, strategists, and all community members to contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals by creating solutions with long-term impact.

Participants will work on their problems and solutions with mentor support addressing the themes using design thinking and lean methodology. Participants work towards solutions resulting in presentation and pitching to a panel of eminent judges for a chance to win awards*. During the weekend while teams are working, they are extensively mentored by subject matter, design thinking, business model, and pitching experts.

You are invited to jam for a better Canada and a better world! Get to know design thinking and lean methodology in practice. Virtually meet like-minded people to develop cool solutions for global problems.

The Global Goals Jam Canada Fall 2022 is based on two selected Global Themes with three topics each. As part of registration, you will be asked to choose one of the Topics/Themes, outlined below:

To collaborate, we need to engage in a way that goes beyond talking, towards creating a space for people from all backgrounds to bring in their local knowledge, ensuring a bottom-up, grassroots approach.

More than just a weekend, it is the beginning of a community to create a real impact.
