More than 80 locations around the globe have already registered for this years’ Global Service Jam 2017 … and the registration for your Jam in Turku (Åbo) opens this weekend. We will be joining the Global Service Jam on February 17–19 in the marvelous WISIO center for 48 hours—to save the planet… let’s Jam Turku! Get your ticket now!

Thank You Everyone for this Jamtastic Weekend!

The fifth Global Service Jam started in Tehran on Thursday morning and went round the world three times to close on Santa Monica Boulevard in California on Sunday night… with grateful thanks to Dean Markus Granlund and Helena Rusanen and above all You! we have been Jamming all weekend long here in Turku (Åbo) in the marvellous Mercatori hall at Turku School of Economics—and we joined thousands around the globe, on six continents, in over 100 locations… You ROCKED! You JAMMED indeed! YOU are the Jam!

Now, with the sunrise over Aura joki all locations are closed, the uploads are uploaded and the Global Service Jam 2015 is no longer LIVE. ‪#‎GSJam‬ is over folks. It’s over…

Still kananlihalla (: —the Global Service Jam 2015 was amazing! The great focus on prototyping this year was a clear expression of the key Jam philosophy ‘doing, not talking! Well, well done everyone! And if you want to do it again—in a whole new context—see you at Global GovJam this June!

The clock is ticking…

Final uploads to the Planet Jam platform to be accomplished by 15:00 sharp—every team’s prototype, any other documentation, business plan canvas, logo, pictures, models, memorable snapshots… jännitys tiivistyy, ehtiikö kaikki prototyyppien dokumentaatio valmiiksi… tuliko filmistä liian suurikokoinen, ehtiikö se latautua Planet Jam alustalle!

Ideation time

Don’t fall in love—don’t ideasturbate… learn to trash a first idea. Asking people to build something—that puts a big smile on their face, and then forcing them to break the very thing to not fall in love with ideas… that’s how Mikko Väätäinen forced us to realise how easy it is to move on and find else. Takes just a couple of minutes that easy.


Get–to–know and warming up…

Come into my comfort zone, and pull me out. Thanks to Riikka Harikkala giving us games, sound and moves to do—ha, haha, hahaha hahahaha, hahahahaha ha… clap your hands and dance!

Still want to join?

Pre–registration is now closed—and what a promising mixed crowd will get together for the Global Service Jam 2015. Now, let’s Jam Turku! this weekend. Overslept the registration process, but still want to join? Let us know asap. … we’ll find a way to get you in.

Those already registered, read the welcoming mail, prepare your hats and wigs … and have good night rest. See you tomorrow, and Tervetuloa!

And the Secret Theme for the Global Service Jam 2014 is…
