Inspired by the blog, I registered for Global Sustainability Jam -13 in Bangalore. As mentioned in the blog , this is not a strictly design thinking event but is around the design thinking principles. It has an inspirational tag line on twitter "48 hours to save the world". This is straight from the mailer that I got from the organizers who had asked me to spread the word
"The Global Sustainability Jam - Bangalore is back! The Bangalore Sustainability Jam will take place right in the centre of the city in the beautiful premises of ThoughtWorks between 22-24 November.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bjkaXpECW_8 Its a 48 hour non-stop pressure cooker experience where people from different genres - experts to enthusiasts, architects to agronomists, business consultants to tech wizards, ideapreneurs to entrepreneurs, thinkers to makers, dreamers to doers, designers, students, ... (to say the least) will come together on a weekend to address issues as large as “Global Warming” to ones as local as your "gully governance".
Through the weekend, hundreds of jams in 6 continents will work in different ways on different answers to the same challenge, sharing problems, advice, and insights leading their way through Defining-> Researching-> Ideating-> Prototyping and Implementing Design inspired innovative solutions. #MeetCrazyCreativeBuffs #GenerateInfiteNewIdeas #ImplementEpochalSolutions - 48 Hours Is all you have.!"
