#1 How can we decrease food waste at Bar Laurea?
#2 How can we decrease E-waste?
#3 How can we make recycling and eco-information appealing and easy to grasp?
#4 How to create a mobile application to help customers make sustainable choices?
#5 How to develop sorting at source on campuses?
#6 How to improve the efficient use of products or resources through Collaborative Consumption and Sharing Platforms?
#7 How to create an attractive and easy-to-use ridesharing –system for intra-campus mobility?

The Jam takes place the 27th and 28th of March at Laurea Leppävaara (Vantaa Maantie 9, Espoo, Finland) both days from 8:45am to 4pm.

DAY 1: On Day 1 we begin at 8:45am with coffee and introduction to the Circular Economy and Service Design methods, then the work around the actual Jam challenges starts. The participants will team-up and start exploring and understanding the topic to form the insights and then generate ideas to tackle the challenges with the help of their challenge owners and a group of creative facilitators. By the end of the day, the teams will select one to three of the many ideas to be developed further.

DAY 2: Day 2 is a hands-on day! The participants will use service design tools and equipment with different creative materials to make the concepts tangible. This way you can test your new ideas with real people and plan how the solutions could be improved and implemented. The day ends with a showcase to share the results of the Jam.
