The Beirut Service Jam 2015
The Beirut Service Jam is the Lebanese edition of the Global Service Jam. Happening simultaneously in over 100 cities in the world, people with different backgrounds such as designers, entrepreneurs, techies, service provider, students and avid learners gather to create new things.
In this weekend workshop, participants come with an open mind and great curiosity to work together in a team to learn, experiment and prototype new service ideas inspired by the global theme of the jam. All the while, participants are introduced to the principles of service design, all in less than 48 hours!
This hands-on experience happens simultaneously worldwide, with each city designing its own program to guide the participants through the journey using interventions from local specialists, and interactive feedback with jammers from all around the world!
At the end of the jam, the service prototypes will be presented, documented and published on the global platform under a Creative Commons License.
