App developers will meet in London on 23-24 April to help engage young voters ahead of the EU referendum.
The vote on 23 June is a once-in-a-generation opportunity for everyone to have their say on the European Union. Every single vote will count.
But Under 25s have the lowest rates of voter registration and hundreds of thousands of young people risk missing out on having their say.
So Hack Europe and London First have joined together to hold a Hackathon on 23 – 24 April to attack the problem.
A hackathon allows software developers and designers to work intensively on a particular project.
They are looking for people with the skills to develop and design apps, games or micro-campaigns to engage younger voters in the process, and encourage them to register and have their say.
This event is likely to be of most interest to those who can code, but anyone with an interest in engaging young voters is welcome.
Sign up as an individual or as a group. There will be experts on hand to provide advice and guidance. To find out more and sign up for free registration, visit the Hack Europe website
