SUSTAINABILITY. DESIGN. FUN.

On November 22-24, 2013, the Center for Social Value Creation will host the second annual College Park Sustainability Jam - a weekend long engagement aimed at creating new, real-world ideas to promote and advance sustainability. Using the principles of Design Thinking the "College Park Sustainability Jam" is part of a global Jam movement that connects "Jammers" from all backgrounds, levels of experience, and parts of the world.  The purpose of the Jam is to learn about design thinking, build new ideas, explore our understanding of sustainability, meet cool people, work hard, and HAVE FUN! The end result is a set of "workable prototypes" that will be uploaded to an international shared database (protected by a creative commons license) and published to the world. So... WANNA JAM???

Activities will run 5-8 p.m. Friday, 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Sunday.
