What We Do

Image Your Future: Youth Leadership Training Programme

The development of science and technology have greatly broadened our projection for the future. What will the world be like thirty years later?

The program requires youths to design their own future city. During the process, they are taught how to think and solve problems creatively and systematically. Coupled with the knowledge gained from the applied technology workshop, the youths could demonstrate their ideas by a physical model. They also have a chance to take a lead role to take care of elementary school students on a field trip. It will a perfect time for them to conclude what they have learned in the past year and transfer that knowledge to juniors.
