Civic Tech Toronto – Youth Empowering Youth Hacknight
August 14 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm
George Brown will be hosting Civic Tech Toronto on Tuesday, August 14th!
These hacknights bring together coders, designers, public servants, planners, students and engaged residents — all interested in using their skills and interest in tech, data and design to address civic issues. They provide a space for community-building, conversation and collaboration on civic tech projects.
Each hack night features a presenter, and time for breakout groups to work on projects. Participants are welcome to start new projects, or work on ones that are already in motion.
