The Schools Challenge Celebrating its 5th Anniversary
Celebrating its 5th Anniversary, The Schools Challenge Hong Kong was launched with the Bootcamp on 15 January 2022! We were happy to have Ms. Harshika Patel, CEO of J.P. Morgan Hong Kong; Dr William Lo, JP, Chairman of JAHK; and Ms. Amy Cheung, JP, Head of EKEO to officially kick off the program this year and give their encouragement to over 400 participating Form 2-3 students, J.P. Morgan Mentors and University Student Volunteers.
The students had a fruitful takeaway with:
‧ Sharing about Kowloon East developments by Mr. Cheng Wai Ho, Senior Works Consolidation Manager from EKEO
‧ Sharing about three social innovation topics – “carbon-neutral”, “community connections”, and “walkable spaces” respectively by Mr. Chong Chan Yau, MBE, Co-founder and CEO of CarbonCare InnoLab; Ms. Sze Lai Shan, Deputy Director of Society for Community Organization; and Mr. William Sin, Research Director of Hong Kong Public Space Initiative
‧ Design Thinking & Team Building Workshop
