Asian Consortium: Hong Kong
The Asian Consortium, part of the Hong Kong 10DAYFEST from the Jockey Club Design Institute for Social Innovation, was a great success.
Brief overview: “140 social innovators from all over Asia came to Hong Kong to channel their ideas of social innovation. Founders of social enterprises, start-ups and leaders in academia from 20 countries, more than 25 nationalities have shared their latest projects in the Network Conference, opened the “Living room by Asian Consortium” exhibition, networked in Changemakers Party and joined the local Excursion to experience social challenges in Hong Kong and explore ways to promote social innovation movements here” – view the photo gallery.
