Event description

Description

Join us for a one-day hackathon to learn design thinking skills and develop concrete proposals to make the most of diversity in your personal, professional and learning environment.

Open to post-secondary young Victorians and international students, the event will provide participants to develop skills in design thinking and apply it to a concrete challenge: how can we make the most of diversity to live better, work better, and learn better?

This hackathon will bring together domestic and international students, working in mixed teams. The more diverse the group, the more adapted the tool. Whether you want an opportunity to think out of the box, tap into your inner rebel, or simply learn how to better engage with a broader range of people, this event is for you!

The workshop will be run entirely in English, with consideration paid to linguistic diversity.

Light lunch will be provided
