Hub for the Future In Action is a social innovation programme which aims to create a platform for young scholars to actualise their dreams of a better future for Hong Kong by channelling their ideas into meaningful and impactful projects that benefit our society.
The programme is conducted in three phases: 1. Idea, 2. Research and Training, and 3. Presentation. Participants are divided into groups according to their passion regarding social issues, and selected groups will be given training and resources along the way they produce the project proposals, each of which will be given a project execution grant of up to HK$100,000 for actualising the projects. Assistance will be provided when necessary during the project execution phase, in terms of network and scenario provision.
