jammingDon’t miss London Circular Jam in November. We are running a weekend of design for circular systems and we have some of the top names in sustainable design to help teams along to brilliant ideas. But it is not just happening in London, this is part of a global event.

On a weekend in November people all over the world will get together in different locations and harness creativity, fun and ideas that aim to make a difference to environmental and social issues as part of the Global Sustainability Jam.

Last year there were events in more than 80 cities with a total of over 1,300 jammers. Now in its third year this is one of the worlds biggest sustainability events.

At the London Circular Jam we are focusing on circular systems. We live on one planet with limited resources, space and capacity to support our population. At the moment we create a lot of waste, but the idea of waste is a design flaw.

We need to create systems that reuse, recycle, or better restore resources and then find ways to continue those system within their capacity. It is about everyone in society working together. To meet this challenge we need people from all disciplines collaborating. This is why we Jam!

To find out more have a look our website LondonCircularJam.org.uk and Join us on the 22nd, 23rd and 24th of November at Us Creates studio, but please remember to first get tickets from our Eventbrite page.
