What's happening at this year's summit?
This year’s HK SDG Summit will be an exciting one. The GGC Council has organized a virtual event which will bring everyone closer to achieving the SDGs. The virtual event will allow Hong Kong participants to engage with NGOs and Youth Changemakers across the world. By doing this summit virtually, the entire World can interact with the SDGs.
The Summit will kick off with our keynote with the Green Queen, Sonalie Figueiras. In 2021, PrestigeOnline.com's selected Sonalie as a "Woman of Power." Sonalie is a successful social entrepreneur and is the founder and editor-in-chief of Green Queen, an award-winning media platform advocating social and environmental change. She will share with us how her partnerships have led her into making a sustainable change towards the SDGs.
Right after we will be joined by last year's keynote speaker, Melati Wijsen, as she deep dives into our theme, partnerships for sustainable change. Melati will be joined by two members of the Circle of Youth to help examine the importance of partnerships in their endeavors.
The theme of the Summit is partnerships for change and the event has divided the SDGs into 4 groups, People, Planet, Prosperity and Peace. These prominent Hong Kong NGOs; Crossroads, Christian Action, The Nature Conservatory and Feeding HK have all agreed to engage in a virtual interactive experience. Participants will have the option in which NGO and “P” to engage with. Look through our NGO page to find more details on these NGO experiences.
The Summit will be facilitated by the ITS Foundation. One of the fundamental activities of the ITS Foundation is to empower youth by mentoring participants through proven processes that lead to impactful initiatives in the real world. Foundation graduates and other select young changemakers will take teams through a Young Changemaker Incubator (YCI) taster session. They will be asked to frame a problem, ideate a solution and prepare and make a short presentation to other teams.
The Summit will feature youth change-makers for panel discussions. Each panel will be separated into one of the 4 Ps and will have 3 to 4 speakers discussing how they work with partners to initiate change.
