Youth 4.0 Kickoff Ceremony

September 11 '18

The Youth 4.0 initiative, which aims to promote youth development on social entrepreneurship and to increase awareness of the SDGs amongst young people in Hong Kong, will be launched on Sept 11. This initiative is the first ever cross-sector collaboration between academia, business and government, featuring a strategic partnership between Youth Co:Lab and the Hong Kong Social Enterprise Challenge (HKSEC). 

The former is a partnership between the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the Citi Foundation while the latter is organized by The Center for Entrepreneurship of The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) and sponsored by the Home Affairs Bureau of the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (SAR).

This event precedes the first ever Hong Kong Dialogue, which will take place on 9-11 November 2018, providing a platform for young people, business leaders, educational institutions, non-profit organizations and government, to address and solve the most pressing challenges faced by the city's youth.
