Moving towards a Sustainable 2022

2021 was indeed a year of changes – a year that the HKFYG Leadership Institute turned unprecedented challenges into new opportunities and meaningful changes. It gave us tremendous joy when decorating the special Christmas trees to welcome a hopeful year. That reminded us of our blessings received and collaborative work tirelessly achieved with youth and partners. We are grateful the newly designed iLeader online programme has received recognition, the HKFYG “Innovation Award”.

To facilitate potential young leaders to lead in the next normal, we have provided a wide range of online, offline and hybrid modes of training and programmes in Sustainability Leadership, Servant Leadership, Resilient Leadership and Respectful Leadership, which we have extended our services to senior primary school students. It is always the Active Participation, Aspirations to Serve and Altitude of Leadership of our youth in Hong Kong that impress us as they shine light in the darkness.

With pressing concern about ESG (environment, social and governance), the Institute, as an important hub for talent cultivation, is dedicated to encouraging youth to develop global leadership and take up more responsibilities to create a sustainable future. That includes sharing thoughts through online debates about SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) in Chamber Debate Club connecting Hong Kong and overseas youth; interacting with distinguished speakers for fruitful and rewarding rides on the world's largest double-deck tram fleet at "Leaders to Leaders 2021: Ding Ding Dialogue - Travelling Towards A Sustainable Community”; inspiring students to develop empathy through designing customer-centric solutions at Fintech Challenge. We end this extraordinary year by engaging youth and community leaders at “Belt & Road Youth Forum 2021: Sustainability on the Move”. Most importantly, through “Hack the Crisis. Beyond Insights” Certificate Course, we have strengthened our youth with attitude and tools to address wellness and turn adversity into opportunity.

Heritage is a unique asset of our community.  Our six thematic open days, bazaars and exhibitions have contributed to sustainable tourism encouraging the community to connect with the former Fanling Magistracy and the youth. Our meticulously designed local tours have surprised the public with multi-sensory experiences that you may now come to enjoy the “Unveiling Fanling” Thematic Exhibition, an illustration of the collaborative effort of our staff and Cultural Ambassadors through a bottom-up approach in cultural heritage. As an Outdoor Education Campsite, our staycation packages have enriched the public’s experience in appreciating the revitalisation of the grade 3 historic building in a unique mix of training and recreational activities.

The HKFYG Leadership Institute team would like to take this opportunity to THANK YOU for your continued trust and unfailing support. Let us make 2022 a year, moving from adapting to changes to Making Wonders in the Future. Have a healthy and happy new year!

Hack For Your Future

As an international financial centre, Hong Kong remains competitive with talents who possess an understanding of global trade developments and the opportunities for Hong Kong. Therefore, in collaboration with HSBC Future Skills Development Project for the HSBC Financial Dialogue Series (FDS), the Institute has organised the Financial Dialogue Series since 2019. This year’s FDS is themed at “Embracing a disruptive era in finance”, each team is required to propose a Fintech solution that is customer-centric and disrupts the current Fintech industry.

In the initial stage of the competition, over 85 contestants from 8 local universities joined a 2-day-1-night hackathon. The outstanding five teams were shortlisted from the 24 teams. The finalists further refined their ideas into prototypes with professional guidance from Fintech practitioners in the 2-week incubation period with a fund of HK$10,000/team. Finally, they showcased their final concepts at the final pitching session to the judging panel formed by Mr Raymond Cheng, council member of The Hong Kong Federation of Youth Groups; IR Eric Chan, Chief Public Mission Officer of Hong Kong Cyberport Management Company Limited; Ms Kathy Lee, Managing Director of Google Cloud North Asia at Google and Mr Kenneth SHIH, Fintech Industry Expert.

Chipskate”, a team formed by the students from the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) and
the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST), earned the top award and won a cash prize of HK$60,000 at the final competition. Their project focuses on a cutting-edge AR game that aims to accelerate the digital transformation of payment scenarios by connecting consumers and vendors interactively and entertainingly. The team said, “this intensive experience from hackathon to final pitching session allows us to make quick changes to refine our business model based on the mentors' feedback.”  

This arrangement also amazed the first-runner up winner AlphaSense, another group of students from the HKUST. They said, “this is the first time for our team to join a fintech competition and we just sparked our ideas during the hackathon. The atmosphere assists us to come up with ideas with teammates." Their project utilises blockchain technology that diversified algorithmic trading strategy applied on NFT, providing a much friendly threshold for investment beginners to get a taste of algo-training. They continued, it would be great if we could enjoy a longer hackathon session to develop more profound solutions.”

The HSBC Financial Dialogue Series is a continuous programme that aims to engage over 300 local university students and HSBC Scholars in finance, business and economics each year. Through interactive dialogue sessions with prestigious leaders and financial experts, equipping young people with the tools and competencies they need to face the future, thus enhancing their employability.

The Institute also provides accommodation offering a perfect space for discussions and collaboration among all participants.

(中大)及香港科技大學(科大)學生組成的隊伍「Chipskate在決賽中勝出,並獲得港幣六萬元的現金獎。他們的項目旨在通過AR 遊戲,以互動和娛樂的方式連接消費者和零售商,改變現行消費模式。團隊分享道:「活動從hackathon到提案安排得非常緊湊,使我們能夠快速根據專家的意見完善方案。」

另一隊同樣來自科大、獲得第二名的隊伍「AlphaSense」對於是次活動安排亦感到興奮。團隊解釋:「這是我們團隊第一次參加金融科技比賽,我們的項目是在hackathon的過程中才激發出來。這種形式能營造自主學習的氛圍,促進隊友之間的交流,一同進步。」他們的項目利用區塊鏈技術,將算法交易(algorithmic trading)應用於非同質化代幣(NFT),為投資初學者提供自動程式交易(alo-trading)體驗的平台。「如果hackathon的時間更長,將有助我們更深入研究解決方案。」

Explore Arts and Culture in Communities

Housed in the revitalised former Fanling Magistracy, a grade 3 historical building for 60 years, the Institute strives to support the development of the arts and culture in Hong Kong through operating various types of cultural events. In November, we welcomed the performers of Théâtre de la Feuille, under the 18dART - Community Arts Scheme by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department, for their touring performances of ‘The Story about District in the North’ Theatre Project. By reinterpreting the old Hakka daily life, the physical theatre performance linked the present and the past for a closer glimpse of the unique culture of North District provided an extraordinary experience to our visitors.
This month, curated by a group of Cultural Ambassadors, the Institute launches a new series of cultural programmes - "Unveiling Fanling”. It aims to enable visitors to reconnect and engage with the local heritage and culture of Fanling by delving into its history and development, sharing stories of its people and places, and showcasing the multifaceted features and attributes of its community. Shedding light on the nature and tradition of Fanling, visitors are also welcomed to join the thematic tours and MYOC Workshop to understand the community in greater depth.
