How might we change the experience of public services?

How might we make them more accessible and user-friendly?
What is a Jam?
You know how musicians come together, each one with a different instrument and jam on a predefined theme? Basically, GovJam is the same. A group of people from different backgrounds, each equipped with their special knowledge, ‘jam’ and co-create new services. At a GovJam we focus on public services and how we could improve them. We are going to spend the weekend together understanding challenges, conducting design research, brainstorming and co-creating different solutions, prototyping and testing with real users, presenting ideas and building business models. Sounds a lot? Don’t worry, we will go step by step and out experienced mentors will make sure you’ll get through as well.
How it works?
Ljubljana GovJam is an international workshop that is part of the Global GovJam. Every year there are more than 50 local jams all over the world. We decided that we want to keep the international feeling and give everyone an opportunity to participate, so we communicate and facilitate the event in english.
