The Data to Policy (d2p) symposium will be happening in the first few days of December. Starting on December 2nd, our online project gallery will be open for people to visit and comment on the great work participating students have produced. We’re using to allow people to annotate projects and have discussions directly in the gallery. Visit and see how the students are examining public data for public good!

The LIVE virtual symposium will be on Friday, December 4th at 11:00am. If you would like to talk to the students directly about the projects, tune in to hear their presentations and have in depth discussions on how to solve the challenges our communities are facing from COVID-19 to climate change.

For more information, please visit the D2P homepage. Instructions on how to access the gallery and attend the live event will be posted on our Symposium Page on December 1st.
