ABOUT THIS EVENT

The IPAA Young Professionals Network, in collaboration with the Young Public Sector Leaders Network (YPSLN), is excited to bring you our first ever Policy Hack! The event unites YPs across the NSW public sector, with a goal of creating innovative ideas and new ways of thinking on some of the state’s major priorities. 
 
The Policy Hack covers three topics: delivering great public spaces, reducing suicide rates and protecting our most vulnerable children. Participants will be challenged to think creatively and collaborate on these complex problems as a team. 
 
Each team will select one of the three topics and work together to propose a prototype solution. 
 
The Policy Hack is kicking off with an introduction session on Monday 7 September, at 4:30 PM. At the session, participants will hear from the business units that are working on each of the three areas to get a better understanding of the problem. 
 
Teams will have 2 weeks to work on the idea and deliver a short presentation. The ideas and presentations will then be judged by a Panel. The top 3 ideas will be presented at the closing event on Thursday 1 October, where the winner of the Policy Hack will be announced.

REGISTER DETAILS
 
Participants are to register individually. To foster greater collaboration across different clusters, you will be assigned to a team of 5 with YPs from different departments. With your registration, you will be asked to put your topic preferences. We will try and put you into your preferred topic choice.

The Topics are:
  • delivering great public spaces
  • reducing suicide rates
  • protecting our most vulnerable children

Once you have received a confirmation of who is on your team, each team is encouraged to find a mentor to provide guidance or just to bounce ideas with. We also have a collection of people who have kindly agreed to be mentors. So if you can’t find one, don’t stress, we can assist and assign your team a mentor.
 
Registrations close on Monday 31 August. Submissions of the prototype solution will be due on Monday 21 September.
