Nurturing leadership: The HKFYG Leadership Institute

Exploring young people's leadership potential while encouraging contributions to society was the focus of The HKFYG Leadership Institute's Grand Opening on 31 March 2019. The Guest of Honour was The Hon Mrs Carrie Lam GBM, GBS, Chief Executive.

Open Day programmes with a "Make Wonders" theme followed the ceremony. They included guided tours of the revitalized former Fanling Magistracy, a heritage building that is home to the Institute. Talks by leading figures from organizations such as Tesla and the UNHCR, sharing sessions with outstanding alumni, movies and workshops filled the afternoon. A two-day caucus in partnership with One Young World* completed the event with speakers from Finland, Malaysia, the US and Zambia who gave young participants insight on issues of global concern.
