Digital Social Innovation

The world has flipped upside-down in so many ways in just a few months, calling for unprecedented measures of adaptation. The first and foremost challenge is how we can work and collaborate locally and globally whilst in physical isolation. The pandemic might have overwhelmed us, but we can outrun and rise above it! Digital Social Innovation (DSI) – which has been coined decades ago as collaborative innovations using digital technologies to co-create knowledge and solutions for a wide range of social needs at a scale and speed that was unimaginable before the rise of internet – can be our answer. 

With DSI, open data, citizen science and other digital tools have opened up a wide array of possibilities in driving informed and responsive changes needed in this time. It is foreseeable that digital technology will be woven into our personal, professional, and social fabric. This stages the best time for us to reflect, share and strategize our way forward on the digital social innovation highway.

Education Innovation

Innovation in education can be manifested in many forms: for example, innovations in the way education systems are organised and managed; in instructional techniques or delivery systems, such as the use of new technologies in the classroom; in the recruitment, training and compensation of teachers. Education Innovation can be applied not only to schools but also to the whole society in a much broader scale. The crux is to create meaningful, impactful, and positive changes in a life-long learning journey. 

This track will explore different ways to accelerate Education Innovation: skilled-based approach in social entrepreneurship education; building education transformation movement to change current practices in schools; and using behavioural science as a tool to develop a better society.

Community Empowerment

The past year of turbulence in social unrest and pandemic has humbled every Hong Kong citizen with a sense of helplessness.  Despite the turmoil, we can see rays of hope where people have displayed unyielding resilience and unlimited creativity.  The trio-session series titled "Community Empowerment" is designed to unleash the latent power embedded in our communities.   Participants will engage in a journey to transform the pressure in the past year into positive power of change.  From acknowledging the current chaotic state of being, learning about the latest case studies and toolkits, to contributing collective wisdom to come up with social design and innovative solutions, this odyssey of community energy transformation will better prepare us to embrace the new normal.

Sustainability and Business

As we navigate through the unprecedented times in our lives with the COVID-19 global pandemic, a unique opportunity has arisen - to leverage on the collective power of different stakeholders over the constructs of a better future. How could business leaders and investors design recovery strategies that will reduce the likelihood of repeated shocks, and increase society’s resilience and sustainability as a whole?

This track will explore topics including strategies, practices and business models to advance sustainability and to prepare for a recovery that is comprehensive, inclusive and contributes to global efforts to build more resilient and sustainable systems that are better placed to prevent such crises in the future.
