Productive Ageing – Social Innovation Design Lab

(老力生產 . 社創設計室)

Welcome to join Social Innovation Design (SI.DLab)!

Background
SI.DLab is a FREE design-doing/creative citizen-training programme organised by Enable Foundation, a non-profit social design agency and funded by Hong Kong Government’s Social Innovation and Enterprise (SIE) Fund. This 2-weekend workshop on Productive Ageing is a special version designed for students of The University of Hong Kong. It is collaboration between Enable Foundation and Sau Po Centre on Ageing, HKU.

Where will we be in 40 years?
In 2016, just two out of every 100 people in Hong Kong are over 80 years old, but in 40 years that figure will jump to an alarming 10 out of every 100. By then, among the Hongkongers over the age of 80, at least a third of them are expected to suffer dementia, according to government’s projection. The current dementia population is already estimated to number more than 100,000 people.

All HKU students are welcome!
