Please note: This public engagement outreach is for any interested Lakehead University and Confederation College student teams who have registered for the Hack-A-Thon event.

Background:

Public engagement means connecting with the community, sharing information, and inviting resident input, opinions, and preferences to inform decision making. For public engagement to be successful it must be inclusive, meaningful, and responsive.

Young adults can bring an important, unique perspective to the City that is often underrepresented in municipal engagement. The City is looking for new ways to reach young adults in Thunder Bay and encourage their interest and involvement in municipal government – the programs, services, and future of the City which impacts them.

The BIG Question:

How can the City of Thunder Bay communicate and engage with young adults in Thunder Bay? How can young adults be more involved in the City? How could the City provide more engaging opportunities for young adults?
