The fourth industrial revolution is fundamentally reshaping the global economy and societies, and we are shifting the way we live, work, and play. How must we respond to these changes, and how can we use the technological advancements of this age to create a new politics?
Building upon the momentum from the ideas in our Facebook group and first meetup, we are hosting our first Politech Hackathon to bring some of the buzzing ideas being discussed to life. We want to bring together people from the political and technology sectors to create a new politics in the context of the fourth industrial revolution. These two communities will be leading the forefront in shaping the future and it only makes sense to be collaborating now.
Over the course of a weekend, participants will ideate and prototype products, services, or platforms to improve politics using tech, data, and political ideas. Want to help change the future of politics to improve the state of the world? Join us.
In order to ensure we can form well-balanced product teams, we ask that you register according to the category that you have skillset in.

Tickets are £5 online before the weekend, and £8 on the door.
