Ottawa Civic Tech and Speculative Futures Ottawa invite you to a special event for our 98th hacknight session. As technology becomes increasingly accessible and open for citizens to contribute to within their civic environment, how can we build our future cities together? What is the role of creativity and imagination in the context of civic tech and policy design? What are the narratives we are creating for our shared futures as we develop technologies that are for the public good? How will the environment we live in shape new technologies and vice versa? Join our 3 panellists on December 11th at Impact Hub Ottawa. ------
