Yes. You can now book your place for Leeds GovJam.
Taking place 5-7 June at Leeds Open Data Institute, Leeds GovJam is part of the Global GovJam. It is all about applying the tools, techniques, and mindset of service design to the public sector. But, you don’t have to be a designer or work in the public sector to get involved. If you are curious about learning by doing and making things better for people, everyone is welcome.
In just 48 hours, your team will design and test solutions to public problems. You will gain experience of co-creating a prototype. Working at pace. Designing for real people. Collaborating as part of a team. Being agile. Being creative within constraints. Innovating and having serious fun.
We hope you will join us for a collaboration and innovation event like no other.
Here is what to expect:
- Tuesday 5 June, 6pm to 8pm: everyone gathers to discover a global theme, which is kept secret until jams all over the world have seen it
- Wednesday 6 June, 9am to 5pm: we split into teams and work together to design and prototype new services inspired by the theme
- Thursday 7 June, 9am to 4pm: more testing and making up to 3pm when everyone shows what they’ve made and shares their work online with a Creative Commons License
What will you design with just 48 hours to rock the public sector?
