Global Goals Jam – Sustainable Supply Chains team: Visualisation and Communication Platform

Posted on Posted in Uncategorised

The Sustainable Supply Chains team based their prototype on the need to create awareness and stimulate discussion about the ethics of production and consumption. In addition to a poster highlighting the deaths of factory workers in Bangladesh, they created a web page and a Slack group to encourage people to investigate the supply chains of the goods they consume every day and to share what they find with others.

Participants echoed the other two teams in acknowledging the complexity of designing a solution to a Global Goal that can have real and meaningful impact immediately. While it seems easy to support realising the Global Goals, identifying actions and initiatives that will capture the hearts and minds of people requires substantial effort, creativity and persistence to find what actually works.
