Three weeks from today we’ll gather at the ODI-Node in Leeds to find out the secret theme for the Global GovJam 2014.
People from Leeds City Council, the NHS, the Department of Work and Pensions and MySociety will join freelancers, academics and others – all with an interest in making government services better with the power of people-centred service design.
It’s a great chance to challenge yourself, learn new skills, meet new collaborators, encounter ideas you would never have had if you were alone, and have a great time. We’ll be doing, not talking – building prototypes to make ideas as physical as possible so we can experience, communicate and test them.
And we won’t be alone. Ours will be one of around 20 jams round the world, all working in their local groups to prototype services on the same shared theme. You could take part in Brazil, Canada, Germany, Taiwan, the USA, and in the UK in Manchester or Exeter too. But obviously we hope you’ll join us in Leeds.
