WHAT'S AN IMPACT JAM? A two-day Innovation Hackathon focused on turning innovation into impact against a specific global challenge.

The 9Billion Lives Impact Jam - Food Waste will connect innovation hubs in Stockholm, Toronto and Nairobi to collectively work on the Food Waste challenge - sharing skills, ideas, and experiences using the Challenge Dialogue System framework.

WHY YOU SHOULD PARTICIPATE. Food Waste in one of our time's biggest challenges as we're approaching 9 Billion people on the planet. We live in a time of unprecedented opportunities. There is no shortage of ideas, innovation, and money, yet grand challenges remain.


A collaborative environment where a mix of skill sets co-create impactful solutions

Across multiple global locations over a 2 day period

Focused on a diverse group of Innovators, Entrepreneurs, Sustainability Experts, Design Thinkers, Engineers and Policy Makers 

Ultimately, it is a unique opportunity to collectively drive sustainable impact in a creative, solution-driven and international environment. And yes, IT'S FREE!

 All we ask in return is dedication, engagement, focus, and that you don't waste food, of course!
