Indigenous Youth Policy Hackathon: Distinctions-Based Health Legislation 2/2

November 13, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - November 14, 2021 @ 4:00 pm EST

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!
  • Meet other Indigenous youth interested in policy and governance!
  • Build your capacity in critical analysis and change-making when it comes to reconciliation!
  • Impact and contribute to the development of real legislation
