Title proposal: Open data for youth engagement and women's empowerment.

Biography: Georges L. J. Labrèche is a problem solver, entrepreneur, and the founder of the Balkan’s leading civic-tech organization: Open Data Kosovo (ODK). He holds a Bachelor degree in Engineering and a Master degree in International Relations so he constantly busies himself with ideas that merge technology, good governance, and social impact. Not stopping short at delivering civic-tech solutions for partner organizations around the world, his team at ODK mentors Kosovo’s tech savvy youth into providing digital solutions to local governance challenges. ODK engages youth in these activities as a means to tackle their disenfranchisement by including them as problem-solvers in government decision-making processes.
