Indigenous Youth Policy Hackathon: Distinctions-Based Health Legislation 1/2
November 5, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - November 7, 2021 @ 4:00 pm EDT
A Policy Hackathon is an event where teams are given a case study outlining a policy problem, and given a limited amount of time to come up with policy solutions to that problem.
Their recommendations are then evaluated by a panel of judges, and a winner is declared. By their nature and structure, Policy Hackathons create space for imagining innovative policy solutions while also building people’s capacity to work in the policy field.
- Learn about policy in a safe, supportive learning environment!
