About the project
To prepare for an ageing society, we aim at nurturing CUHK students to identify, recognise and address the challenges faced by the elderly in Hong Kong and develop innovative ideas to design service plan. Ultimately, it is hoped that students could improve the general well-being of elderly in Hong Kong with a positive attitude and an empathetic mindset.
