PeaceGeeks and Simon Fraser University, present #PeaceHacks, a hackathon that aims to address pressing issues related to refugee and immigrant settlement in greater Vancouver.
We're looking for social innovators, tech leaders, newcomers, and community stakeholders to put their skills to use on November 25 and 26 to discover new ways to empower newcomers with apps and innovation.
Participants will reflect on the biggest challenges for newcomers and explore how technology and innovation can be used to increase access to services and strengthen intercultural integration. Future hackathons will build on the ideas formed during the day, to develop apps and services that empower newcomers.
A very big thanks to our outstanding and on-going partners, which include Axiom Zen, LUSH Cosmetics, OpenData BC and The Hive Vancouver.
November 25 (6:00 pm - 9:00 pm) - November 26 (8:30 am 6:00pm), 2015
