Register for the “Community Planning for an Age-friendly Community” Symposium
Hong Kong is facing an imminent impact brought about by double ageing. How can we create an inclusive and supportive environment that would increase the elderly’s self-care abilities and help them to live independently and confidently in their neighbourhood?
In Season 11 of the “One from Hundred Thousand” Social Innovation Symposium, a number of experts will share their views on the planning of an age-friendly community based on the daily experiences of the elderly and their living environment. The Symposium will explore what can be done or improved in our existing urban environment to improve age-friendliness.
Organised by the PolyU Jockey Club Design Institute for Social Innovation, the Symposium (conducted in Cantonese) will be held online free-of-charge on 5 June 2021. The registration deadline is 3 June 2021.
