Global Service Jam

Global Service Jam

One special weekend, people interested in service and customer experience will meet at locations all over the globe. They will be designers, students, academics, business people, unemployed people, customers, mums, kids and grand-dads. In a spirit of experimentation, innovation, co-operation and friendly competition, teams will have less than 48 hours to develop and prototype completely new services, products or initiatives inspired by a shared theme.  At the end of the Jam, their collection of brand new insights and prototypes will be published to the world.

CreativeMornings

CreativeMornings

In 2008, Tina Roth Eisenberg (Swissmiss) started CreativeMornings out of a desire for an ongoing, accessible event for New York’s creative community. The concept was simple: breakfast and a short talk one Friday morning a month. Every event would be free of charge and open to anyone.

Today, attendees gather in cities around the world to enjoy fresh coffee, friendly people, and an international array of breakfast foods. Volunteer hosts and their team members organize local chapters that not only celebrate a city’s creative talent, but also promote an open space to connect with like-minded individuals. The growing archive of past breakfast talks is humbling. From design legends to hometown heroes, speakers are selected by each chapter based on a global theme.

CreativeMornings remains free thanks to the support of local partners, generous venues, and longterm global partners. Everyone is welcome. Everyone is creative. Just register beforehand to reserve your spot. And if you need a little help convincing your boss to let you attend, we’ve got you covered. Remember to set your alarm, and we’ll see you in the morning!

Community of international designers working in, for and with governments across the world

In 2017, the Government Digital Service established the international design in government community. A community of international designers working in, for and with governments across the world.

The international design in government community has grown to over 1200 members from over 58 countries over the past two years. The community developed online via a mailing list, Slack and monthly calls.

In summer 2018, 220 community members from 26 countries came together in London to exchange ideas, create connections, and find opportunities for collaboration at the first International Design in Government Conference.

In 2019, there will be various international events organised by community members. Learn more about the 2019 events in this blog post.

Extinction Rebellion

Extinction Rebellion

Global movement that uses non-violent civil disobedience to halt mass extinction and minimise the risk of social collapse

Global movement that uses non-violent civil disobedience to halt mass extinction and minimise the risk of social collapse

On 31st October 2018, British activists assembled on Parliament Square in London to announce a Declaration of Rebellion against the UK Government. The next few weeks were a whirlwind. Six thousand rebels converged on London to peacefully block five major bridges across the Thames. Trees were planted in the middle of Parliament Square, and hole was dug there to bury a coffin representing our future. Rebels super-glued themselves to the gates of Buckingham Palace as they read a letter to the Queen.

Extinction Rebellion was born.

The call to rebel swiftly became global, with branches popping up the following week in Europe, the US, and soon after the world over. Leaderless and truly global, each new branch makes the movement stronger, bringing in new perspectives, wisdom, expertise, energy and inspiration.

We are working relentlessly, building our movement in preparation for phase three, a global rebellion that will begin on the 7th of October 2019. So come and join us. Rebel for life. For the planet. For our children’s children’s futures. There is so much work to be done.
