Policy Matters: Hackaton

Event Details

Hosted by the Ontario Council for International Cooperation (OCIC) and the Canadian Council for Young Feminists (CCYF), the Hackathon Event is part of the Policy Matters Youth Training Series, a free, virtual series that invites participation from diverse youth with interest and experience in policy making, public policy issues, and youth engagement. This five-part training series will support young people in recognizing the value and insight they can bring to policy and advocacy spaces, build skills relevant to the international cooperation sector, and provide opportunities to seek out networks, support, and funding to take action on these issues in their local communities.

This event will provide young people the opportunity to form teams and take part in a ‘deep dive’ on different thematic areas, including Human Rights and Inequalities, Climate Change and Justice, Public Health/Healthcare, and Future of Work/COVID-19 and a Just Recovery. Youth will have the opportunity to hear from sector experts on this topic, including other young leaders, and will spend the weekend working in teams to create policy recommendations based on various relevant case studies on these topics.
