Solutions to how countries can mitigate the security risks of climate change have earned SFU students international recognition at the inaugural NATO policy hackathon.

On Feb. 4, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) launched its NATO 2030 Policy Hackathon. The week-long event showcased the talents and efforts of student teams from across North America and Europe as they competed to create new and innovative policies to solve NATO’s most pressing problems. The teams represented schools such as Johns Hopkins University, Harvard University, Sciences Po, King’s College London, and our own Simon Fraser University.
