The event has from an perspective on someone sitting at the next table, trying to listen and interact with the participants at certain moments, been one of the most creative, calm and happy events ever seen. At least for me.
The participants are very focused, taking on their challenge with eagerness and creativity, cooperating well (sure there has of course been some quarrels but nothing totally blocking it seems) and with a good spirit. I look forward to seeing, hearing and experiencing their presentations in one hour…
Through the ustream channel a lot of the mood of the event has been caught. Here are some clips:
Focused work 😐
Lunch beat : )
Happy helpers and participants
Two hours left for the event to kick-off.
The hall is full of food, cups, computers, tape, pens, papers, cabels, crazy hats – all in the middle of the museums furniture exhibition.
Volunteers running, carrying and opening post-it sticks and checking the time on their vrists or mobiles. Smiles on the faces.
Lugnet före stormen as we would say in Swedish, the calm before the storm.
The creative storm.
The blog for the Swedish and Gothenburg version of sustainability jam 2011 has been born.
Mother: loads of cabels
Father: the people that invented the net and the blog tool and the jam
Delivering nurse: the urge, the wish, the dream, the pulling power of many to make a creative contribution to a more sustainable world
Welcome all god parents
We will try to cover the event as well we can. What is going on there, physically and mentally, the mood, the ideas, the idealism and realism, the time aspect, the contributors, the speakers, the organisers, the audience, the volunteers, the failors, the successes, the meetings, the surprises, the cooperations, and of course: the tunes, the tones, the melody and rhythm of a JAM!
