This year, we set up workshops and guided tours in Sham Shui Po, Kowloon City, Tuen Mun and Southern District to introduce the lives and cultures of the communities to the residents, with a view to observe how social innovation can spark from the bottom-up.

Application is subject to availability.

Sham Shui Po & Kowloon City Community Cultural Tour
Time: 9:30AM- 1:00PM
Language: Cantonese
Pick-up Point: The Good Lab, 1st Floor, The Sparkle, 500 Tung Chow Street, Cheung Sha Wan, Kowloon, HK

Even a developed area, Sham Shui Po spans many antiquated buildings pending reconstruction. Does the disappearance of this accustomed sight mean no place for community economy? In Sham Shui Po & Kowloon City Community Cultural Tour, the notion of “sharing economy” will be expounded through practical examples like free or suspended meal, surplus food recycle and second-hand trading social enterprises, revealing how social innovation helps an interdependent community strive for a better life.
