Laureus S4G Community Workshop Series 28 Mar & 1 Apr on Youth Social Issues

You are invited to attend a group discussion on youth social issues and the role of sports in Hong Kong.

Laureus Sport for Good has chosen Hong Kong as its seventh global location to explore as a potential host for its Model City programme, and The Purpose Business is thrilled to be working with Laureus on the research phase of this innovative work. The other model cities include London, New York, Atlanta, New Orleans and Paris.

Laureus launched its first programme support to local partners in Hong Kong in 2018 and is looking to expand its work via a longer term programme commitment: Model City Hong Kong.

With years of experience and backing from international brands, Laureus wants to learn more about the social issues of Hong Kong and the role that sport currently plays and could play to address these problems.

 

The Workshop Series

The Purpose Business is convening three workshops, and we invite you to come along to the ONE that best suits your schedule, to join the small group of diverse stakeholders and contribute to the private conversation to share your views and insights.

The workshops will comprise facilitated conversations, intended to share and surface the following and lots more:

·       Share more about Laureus and their learnings and successes to help youth through sports

·       Discuss social issues that most affect Hong Kong’s youth and how a sport focused programme could make a positive difference

·       Share insights about any coalitions or sports groups already in place in Hong Kong who may be potential partners for Laureus

Your feedback from the workshop will inform Laureus’ next steps in Hong Kong.

Please RSVP by clicking HERE, and please indicate which workshop you will attend.  If you would like more information, please contact Will Ng at +852 5506 4149 or [email protected].
