Civita HACKT: Access to Education
In 2018, UNICEF ranked Australia has the second most unequal education system in the world. This is largely due to social segregation and costs more than $20bn to the Australian economy. Read more here.
While Australians are more highly educated than ever before, some groups of society still experience difficulty to access education. Improvements made in the past year have impacted less remote areas. See this ABS report for more details.
In light of this, we believe that we can do our part to make our education system that little bit more equitable to all.
Join the hackt on Access to Education on 6th of July at the historical State Library of NSW. Formalities will commence at 12 pm with the Hackt to follow at 1 pm. Keep an eye out for the itinerary!
What is a hackt?
Hackts are three hours workshops to help a social cause. Typically, these workshops occur every two months and have a specific topic. The main tool used by participants will be data. Team of volunteers will work on a challenge. Check our website (https://civita.tech) to learn more about the kind of challenge we have and our previous events.
Stay tuned for more info on the challenges!
Who do we partner with?
This time, Civita has the great pleasure to partner with the State Library of NSW's DX Lab, that builds and supports new ways of design thinking, experimentation and research with technology. The DX Lab is a place where innovation and collaboration are explored focussing on making the collection accessible to our readers in new and exciting ways. https://dxlab.sl.nsw.gov.au/
