Design & Technology for Social Innovation
To support social innovation projects that address poverty and social issues, PolyU launched the Good Seed Programme in 2015 with funding support from SIE Fund. The Programme aims to sow the seeds of a caring society among young people and nurture them into creative social innovators with a seed fund of HK$100,000 for each supported social innovation project.
The Programme is composed of three stages:
- Stage 1 - Interactive and action-oriented learning (design, technology and business focused)
- Stage 2 - Idea collaboration and co-creation
- Stage 3 - Project implementation (prototyping and testing ideas)
Social innovation projects supported by the Programme bring a positive social impact to a range of beneficiaries, including the elderly, the visually impaired, low income families and ex-offenders.
