CodeAcrossTO 2019: Toronto’s Take on UN’s Sustainable Development Goals

Event Details

Come out to CodeAcrossTO, an all-ages, all-skills-and-abilities community hackathon on March 2nd at Artscape Daniels Launchpad. Lunch provided! The theme is “Toronto’s take on UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)”. Join challenges that speak explicitly to Toronto’s sustainable future, facilitated by rad folks like Law & Design Colab (working to improve legal accessibility), OPIRG Toronto (environment/social justice research and action group), and Toronto Environment & Energy (driving Toronto’s #TransformTO climate action plan forward). Think of it as a pop-up public process incubator: to explore design thinking, build connections outside of our usual bubbles, and have enough fun doing it that we continue long after the event is done.

Participants will join one of these challenges at the event:
– Making our built environment more accessible
– Expanding access to reliable internet & hardware
– Reducing individual carbon footprints
– Reducing waste & energy consumption in our everyday spaces
– Expanding advocacy
– Legal Accessibility: Redesigning the Ontario Standard Form Lease

As always, CodeAcrossTO is hosted by Civic Tech Toronto, and supported by Code for Canada. Civic Tech TO is “90% civic, 10% tech”: an open, volunteer-run project space hosted each Tuesday evening for community initiatives.
