Social Innovations are Shaping the Future

Young people are full of creativity and great ideas to shape a better world. Through innovation and imagination, they are problem solvers and passionate to generate a positive social change. Often what they lack are reliable resources and adequate support.

The Federation launched The HKFYG Innovation for Social Impact Project (HKFYG Inno Impact), an initiative which will allocate resources to recognize and celebrate young people aged between 18 and 35 as they creatively and innovatively solve issues and problems that confront Hong Kong. It also aims to encourage the potential of young people as they contribute back to the community through their actions, building up their civic responsibilities and duties. The winners will have created social value through their applicable ideas, as they work towards the common good of improving our society.

The Federation has received a total of 175 applications this year and 5 creative proposals were awarded with funding worth up to HKD 200,000 each and additional support, including professional mentorship, guidance, introduction to networks and service promotion. The winning projects focus on issues around Virtual Global Internship, SEN Learning Support with A.I., Interactive Trainings for Dementia Patients, Online STEM Learning Platform and A.I. Learning Platform for Primary Students.

Let's support social entrepreneurs for creating greater and sustainable social impact in the city.
