Impact from a Distance: A Dialogue with Social Changemakers

Impact from a distance: dialogue with social changemakers, thursday 27 august 2020 at 3pm

On 27 August, Garage Academy will be moderating a virtual roundtable to explore how social innovation continues to drive impact through these challenging times. 

 

We are honoured to be a part of Garage Society's upcoming webinar, "Impact From a Distance." Our co-founder, Andrew Tsui, will be one of the social changemaker panellists for this fascinating discussion! 

 

There’s no bigger challenge than 2020 in Hong Kong right now. Despite this, social enterprises continue to innovate to tackle local and global issues that affect many of us in society. In Hong Kong, we are seeing different sectors support the city’s most important challenges through collaboration, partnerships, CSR and financial support.

Key Takeaways:

  • The latest social landscape in 2020

  • What private companies are looking for in driving social impact?

  • What are the new forms of collaboration?

  • What could we do as an individual to create impacts in the area we care about?

Join our webinar to learn how social enterprises drive positive change and how you can be part of the solution.
