Participants will split into four groups in the afternoon according to their choice of track.
See below for details of TRACKS A, B, C, and D for your selection.

TRACK A: Exec Labs (Challenge of Ideation) – FULL – 

We’ve asked a few local executives for their real business pain points, related to Sustainable Development Goals. Can you help them crack the problem? In diversely mixed participant teams, you will get to ask them questions, quickly ideate CSV solutions, then pitch for feedback to see what might be feasible next steps.

Local executives:

  • Mohit Grover, Partner, Strategic Risk, Risk Advisory, Deloitte Hong Kong
  • Claude Reumert, Head of Liquidity Management Products, Hong Kong Treasury and Trade Solutions, Cit
  • Daniel Vaughan, Chairman | Co-Founder, bbase Design Group

TRACK B: Immersive Tour (Challenge of Partnerships)

Join us on a neighbourhood walking tour and site visits to social innovation projects, in partnership with impact tour guides telling the story of Kwun Tong’s morphing social fabric, recent changes and socioeconomic challenges. Discover how selected NGOs, social enterprises, and companies are working together to amplify impact.

The walking tour will lead you from Yue Man Square to Tsui Ping River, including Back Alley and Vessel 01. You will talk with hawkers and social innovators, hunt for community artworks and uncover hidden aspects of this renewed urban area.

Host: Luke Tam, Co-founder & Community Engagement Director, Kaifong Tour

 

TRACK C: Hack Your Habits (Challenge of Disruption)

Did you know that our habits help us do tasks automatically allowing us to use our time and energy efficiently? By regularly repeating behaviour that requires little or no thought we can operate on autopilot. Habits can become deeply ingrained, sometimes creating more problems than it solves. Small changes in habits, when done at scale, can have transformational change. Have you wanted to adopt “green” habits and be a changemaker? Join this interactive workshop and let’s hack those habits!

Host: Margaret Burnett, Programme Director, Sustainability Leadership Governance Programme, CCSG at HKU
Facilitators:
Benjamin Chu, Corporate Citizenship Lead, Accenture Hong Kong
Luca Fong, Managing Director, Accenture Hong Kong

TRACK D: Mental Well-being Experience

Mental health is a core element of everyone’s holistic health. There is a wide range of available solutions, including meditation, eco- or talking therapies as well as apps, yet usage remains low to date.

In this interactive session powered by our Mind Health partner AXA, hosts will facilitate an open discussion on exploring resources to improve mental well-being. They will focus on solutions to meet the needs of populations – Gen Z and Silver segment – who often experience a high incidence of poor mental health.

Join this workshop to share experiences, develop new ideas, and foster mental well-being.

Director, Beetales

about Beetales: There is nothing new under the sun. The urban beekeeping we often talk about is actually being practiced in different ways. What is a city? What is nature? Aren’t cities built in nature? Humans and bees have been a part of it for thousands of years, but with the development of human beings, they try to separate the place where they live from nature.

The next chapter of the future of people and bees, this BeeTales and bee people’s honey language, is decided by you and me together.
