Global Sustainability Jam Hong Kong 2013


Published on

Over the course of 2 days, Design Thinking Hong Kong (DTHK) hosted the Global Sustainability Jam in Hong Kong. DTHK invited professionals in design, research, user experience design, and sustainability to mentor and guide participants through a vigorous weekend of creative problem solving.

Our goal was not only to expose the design process to the public, but to also let people discover that design is a tool for tackling interesting issues such as sustainability.
