Global Goals Jam
The Center for Social Value Creation and the Academy for Entrepreneurship and Innovation are excited to present Global Goals Jam!
Global Goals Jam will be taking place September 17-19, 2021 on the University of Maryland’s campus. This exciting international event consists of over 85 cities across the world tackling pressing local sustainability challenges related to the UN Global Goals. In this year’s first-ever College Park jam, multidisciplinary teams will come together for a three-day design thinking case competition. Participants will engage with local leaders, including College Park Mayor Wojahn, to catalyze solutions for a more equitable and sustainable transportation system.
Registration is open to all students, staff, faculty, alumni and community members. Participants may register as teams or as individuals to be put into a team, with the first-place team receiving $250 per team member. Registration is open until September 10 at ter.ps/goalsjamcp!
