Skills for Tomorrow

Perhaps one of the positive outcomes of the COVID-19 pandemic is how technology, especially AI, is changing the way we learn, work and connect with each other. This is especially true of the younger generation, who are eager and enthusiastic to develop their soft and hard skills and abilities.

For this reason, from 26 to 28 June, the Federation will be hosting the first ever HKFYG Skills for Tomorrow Expo. We want to tap into young people's curiosity and help support their acquisition of new skills in science and digital technology, enabling them to remain as competitive in the world as they can. 

We will focus on six areas: Digital Skills; Innovation and Problem Solving; Life Planning; Communication and Cooperation; Wellness Management; and Resilience and Crisis Management which will be offered through over 50 diversified activities. These include demonstrations and workshops, talks and seminars, to be held either at the HKFYG Jockey Club Media 21 (M21) in Aberdeen or the HKFYG Leadership Institute in Fanling. Some activities will be online as well.  

This exciting programme is open and we look forward to you joining us! Activity highlights can be found in Coming Soon section below.
