Four Ottawa Civic Tech (YOWCT) meet-ups were hosted on the University of Ottawa campus during October 2017. Ottawa Civic Tech is a community of citizens from diverse sectors and experiences who are interested in better understanding our complex social and civic challenges and building solutions at the intersection of technology, design, data, policy, entrepreneurship, advocacy, and citizen engagement. Hosting regular “hacknights,” YOWCT creates an inclusive space for people from diverse backgrounds to connect, learn, share, collaborate, and participate in the democratic process in a modern and digital world. By breaking down institutional silos YOWCT creates possibilities and connections to build civic good that would otherwise be impossible. Check out future YOWCT meet-ups happening around Ottawa.
