The event will include a Student Showcase featuring innovative projects or initiatives in applied research, social innovation, entrepreneurship, sustainability, reconciliation and inclusion. CICan on the Hill event participants, including students, will be welcome to join in organised meetings with parliamentarians and senior government officials on the second day of the event.
