DESCRIPTION

It is our great pleasure to invite you to the kick-off event of the Think Tank Hub’s newest initiative, the SDG Accelerator #PolicyHack. As an important stakeholder in the Geneva ecosystem of actors dedicated to achieving the 2030 Agenda, we hope you will be able to join us and help us setting up policy challenges aiming at accelerating gender equality and women’s empowerment by sharing your ideas and perspectives.

Why the SDG-Accelerator #PolicyHack?

While the world has achieved progress towards gender equality and women’s empowerment under the Millennium Development Goals (including equal access to primary education between girls and boys), women and girls continue to suffer discrimination and violence in every part of the world.

In this regard, as part of the SDG Accelerator #PolicyHack initiative, a hackathon will take place on November 16 to 18, 2017. This hackathon is a two and a half day event aiming at creating a temporary creative and collaborative space space for the development of new ideas for more effective, efficient, and transparent global, national and local policies. Policy experts and professionals, innovators, technologists, designers, scholars, students will meet and discuss challenges around gender inequalities and experience an effective and efficient process that enables them to come up with concrete and innovative solutions to addresses those issues. The project results from a partnership between the Think Tank Hub Geneva, Switzerland's Federal Department of Foreign Affairs (FDFA) and the Impact Hub Geneva, and aims to accelerate the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

We need you!

Because a good hackathon depends on the quality and the relevance of its challenges, we need your help to set them up! Let us disrupt current policies together and develop new ideas to address gender inequality challenges!
