Aim: The London Circular Jam aims to bring groups of people together interested to learn more and design around sustainability and the circular economy in practical action over a jam packed creative weekend workshop in teams. It is also the London representative of the Global Sustainability Jam
Outcome: On the weekend of the 21st to 23rd of November we had more than 40 individuals come together from diverse backgrounds and experiences to come up with ideas and prototypes for more sustainable solutions. Alongside experienced mentors including Frank O’Connor, Mark Shayler (This is Ape), Dr Emma Jefferies, & Chris Thompson (Viadynamics) to name a few. Also great support from the Fab Lab London, Creative KTN Design SIG with their Horizons tool and not forgetting Admans beer!
