Polithon's "Beta" hack-a-thon
2014-09-20 08:00 am
Polithon is a Policy Hackathon of the New Generation Working to Solve the Toughest Issues We Face
Polithon is bringing together Millennials who think differently to move beyond the challenges and gridlock of the current policy making process and find tangible solutions to critical issues facing our generation.
We believe in fostering the next generation of responsible citizens and leaders by moving beyond dialogue, making policy development more inclusive, and focusing on solutions that work.
In a nutshell: to kick things off as our beta-test and proof of concept, we are bringing together a group of ten Millennials (5 female: 5 male) under 40 who are outside-the-box thinkers from various backgrounds. They will ultimately be those who are passionate about working toward resolving the Israeli/Palestinian conflict, but also people who simply believe in making the world a better place. The goal now is to objectively brainstorm a tangible and measurable plan to end the blockade of Gaza as a first step. The plan could be implemented following a ceasefire as a mean to moving toward a long-term peaceful solution.
When: Friday, September 19 to Sunday, September 21, 2014
Where: The School of Conflict Analysis & Resolution, George Mason University, Arlington, VA 22201
Proposal question: How do we find an end to the blockade of Gaza in order to maintain a lasting ceasefire between Israel and Palestinians in Gaza and begin to build the foundation for a sustainable, peaceful future for all involved in the conflict?
Goal: Develop a tangible, incremental, and measurable potential solution to end the blockade of Gaza that addresses concerns on both sides including security and freedom of movement.
1. Focus on moving forward rather than dwelling on the past
2. Final plan must be in line with international law and international humanitarian law, actionable, and measurable by both sides.
3. A neutral, agreed-upon third party will ensure implementation of the plan so that both sides are held accountable.
Format: the Polithon will gather a group of no more than ten people from backgrounds not commonly brought to discuss solutions to the conflict - those who think different and can offer fresh perspective and an objective approach.
Prior to the event, a briefing booklet will be distributed to the participants. Written with the help of experts, the booklet will lay out the basic facts of the conflict, its background, and its consequences.
Friday: mingle and get to know each other. Entirely social.
Saturday: morning will feature a briefing session on the current situation. Then there will be a brainstorming session and hackathon. Experts will be on standby.
Sunday: Presentation of policy paper to experts and the media.
Participants: Creative Millennials passionate about making a difference and who can bring in fresh perspectives.
We are interested in people with various backgrounds, from business to entrepreneurs to artists to scientists. We aim for 50% male and 50% female, a gender that is typically only marginally represented in foreign policy.
