We are a group of volunteers who love Sustainability & Service Design. Some of us have known each other before, some of us- as we worked together now – but most of us are just friends bound together by the joy of planning a good event. We started work in May when Adam & Marcus released the dates of the Jam. We’ve seen people come and go from the team and its been a great journey so far.
