In Politics today, teens don't get a chance to vote and express their views on things that will have profound impacts on their lives. Our aim is to provide them with the platform to voice their opinions, but most importantly, with an opportunity to think about politics and express their views through technology. No matter whether you lean left, right or centre we invite you to join us for two days of inspiring talks and workshops in Artificial Intelligence, Data Science, Design Thinking, Ethics and Entrepreneurship. Young people aged 12-18 didn't get a chance to vote and express their views on something that will have a profound effect on their lives. Our aim is to provide them with the platform to voice their opinions, but most importantly, with an opportunity to think about politics and express their views through technology.
