GovJam Turku

What a great time and dream team!

on Thu, 06/06/2013 - 06:49

GovJam Turku team proved to be versatile, creative and fun to work and be with. At first, it looked like it would be a mini-jam with more organisers than jammers but during the last two days several new participants registered. With one cancelation, GovJam Turku ended up with a dream team of 15 people with very different backgrounds, all enthusiastically joining their creative forces to create even better services well worth our tax money. A good start to get attention to user–centered design of public services—constructively rocking the public sector!

The team consisted of an architect, a few professional designers—some with their own small businesses, business students, academics, gov people, computer specialist and artists. It couldn't have been a better mix of people.

A jam is essentially about sharing. Thanks to Spout, we enjoyed a continuous flow of tweets by 800 jammers in 39 cities around the world on our screen, plus a few discussions with fellow jammers in Tampere. What a great event!
