Symposium 2022

Entering the 15thyear, the Social Enterprise Summit 2022 (SES 2022) returns in a hybrid format. Themed Bounce Forward Together, the forum will be a fascinating exchange of industry leadership that seeks to explore cross-sector collaboration for social and economic rebound, amidst the post-pandemic climate. With over 70 accomplished speakers from Hong Kong, Asia and beyond, the event endeavours to empower and mobilise changemakers to accelerate innovative solutions to build back a better society. Together, all walks of life can amass and reimagine a better future that is regenerative, restorable and renewable.

Community Engagement

While the SES is well known as the curator of the annual International Symposium, that’s not all we do! Community outreach is another key avenue of community learning and engagement. This year, SES will further extend its community outreach to ten districts in Hong Kong, comprising Central and Western, Kowloon City, Kwun Tong, Sham Shui Po, Southern District, Wan Chai, Tai Po, Tuen Mun, Yau Tsim Mong, and Yuen Long. Through an array of intriguing activities, including SE Labs, SE Programmes, the Carnival, the Bazaar, school talks and workshops, and community tours, we gather community participation to bring about social change.
