button rundown

The transitional housing projects launched by the HKSAR Government since 2017 aimed primarily to provide quick and short-term accommodation to alleviate the acute housing shortage problem. With the deep involvement of many NGOs in project formulation and implementation, more than providing decent housing accommodation to the tenants, these projects have created many liveable communities treasured by their tenants. Each transitional housing projects is indeed a social experiment of community making.

This social innovation symposium, would bring together cross-sectoral stakeholders who have contributed to this community making experiment to summarise the experience, share the joys and challenges of the process, and foster conscious and proactive efforts in making liveable communities in Hong Kong.
