The Policy Innovation Platform contains a variety of approaches to co-creating policy solutions with the general public. It uses design thinking and entrepreneurial techniques to generate new insights and solutions to complex policy problems.

The Policy Innovation Platform is a project incubated at the Brookfield Institute for Innovation + Entrepreneurship. The Brookfield Institute works with partners to scope the problem and design a policy challenge. Each challenge accelerates the development of innovative solutions by bringing together different perspectives, experiences and skill-sets. The Brookfield Institute is uniquely positioned to help integrate high-potential ideas into Ryerson’s Zone Learning for further development and potential commercialization.

Thank you to our participants, partners, collaborators, and sponsors for helping us to bring Climate Hack-to-Action to life! We couldn’t have done it without you.
