Hello from Leeds! Put your GGovJam on the map...

on Thu, 03/24/2016 - 16:28


Planning to rock the public sector in 2016? It's time to put YOUR GGovJam site on the map!

For 2016, the GGovJam HQ lands in Leeds, UK, from where volunteers will support hosts and jammers around the globe. We'll also be recruiting a distributed team of volunteers across the timezones.

This year we want to celebrate the dedication and experience of jam hosts around the world AND make it as easy as possible for new hosts to put on a jam in their city. If you have ideas of how we could make the GGovJam better, or would like to offer your services to help with the global co-ordination, please drop us a line.

If you're intending to host a jam, please read the FAQ, then let us know by emailing subject line "I wanna host!" to and tell us where you live. We'll soon have you added to the list of locations.

All the best from your (growing) Global HQ team: Matt (GovJam Leeds, GGovJam HQ Team)
Natasche, Ruth, Adam, Markus (GGovJam HQ Team)

**Note about GGovJam dates**
In most countries, where the working week runs from Monday to Friday, the main days of GGovJam will be 1 and 2 June, but some locations might choose to start on the afternoon of 31 May. Countries with other working weeks may hold their GGovJam event one or two days earlier, with the agreement of GGovJam HQ.
