The goal of the summit is to foster interdisciplinary problem-solving and craft dynamic solutions through collaboration. We recognize that Florida's future belongs to all of us and we all have the power to shape a brighter tomorrow. That's why we value a variety of perspectives and welcome all majors to apply. Though the Summit is designed to influence public policy, prior policy knowledge or experience is not required and issue-specific background information will be provided.

This year, the summit will focus on the intersection of technology and public policy. We will deal with questions from data privacy and the growth of artificial intelligence to building sustainable cities and creating more inclusive communities - as well as many more topics in between through our breakout sessions on smart government, criminal justice, urban planning, and social policy.
