Multi-perspective Sharing

By organising the keynote speech, plenary session and concurrent workshops, we created a platform for overseas and local experts to collate, consolidate and exchange experience in building social capital, as well as to explore and look forward to the future directions of social capital development. Through participants’ and project teams’ active involvement in the project expo and talent shows, it is beyond doubt that CIIF-funded projects which have successfully built social capital will sustain a harmonious living environment for all. Dr. Allan ZEMAN, Chairman of Hong Kong Ocean Park also concluded the experience of two CIIF-funded programmes in his luncheon address.

The CIIF would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to speakers, moderators, project teams, performance teams and volunteers for their active participation and sterling support.

New Book Launch

The CIIF newly released our tenth anniversary commemorative book in the forum, which covered ten touching and inspiring stories, including those on how a group of unemployed workers co-found a decoration works self-managed group, and how a visually-impaired youth became a balloon decorating expert. With the assistance from their friends and professionals, they have created their bright futures and turn to help others in need. Each story showcases the magnificent power of social capital.

The day’s highlight is the SCB Award - Social Capital Builders Award Presentation Ceremony in which both Mrs Carrie Lam and Mr Yeung Ka-sing, Chairman of the CIIF Committee recognised the contributions of individuals and corporations to social capital development in Hong Kong and commended outstanding funded projects.
