On October 9th, over 50 organizations of Boston will convene 300 young adults ("delegates") at the Edward M. Kennedy Institute for the United States Senate to participate in the first annual Our Convention. Each organization will nominate up to 5 delegates to represent them to ensure diversity and inclusivity.
During Our Convention, delegates will form smaller teams to collaborate and rapid prototype solutions (policy, product, service, etc.) focused on different local issues (transportation improvements, housing affordability, etc.) facing Greater Boston.
After Our Convention, in collaboration with UMass Boston, results from each team will be compiled and included as part of a briefing book and a companion website. The results will be shared with elected officials, industry leaders, issue experts and the broader community.
