Supporting Event - Social Innovation Regional Forum 2020

The challenges of population ageing and building stock ageing have received much attention but they are always regarded as two separate issues. Indeed, their combined effects present a much more complex issue where the quality of life of the elderly is compromised as mundane tasks and social participation become increasingly difficult. We must therefore tackle “Double Ageing” with integrated effort from the whole community.

Welcome to Social Innovation Regional Forum (SIRF) 2020, a virtual event comprised of a series of thematic sessions, a forum and an exhibition taking place from October to December. Join academics, industry leaders, and stakeholders from Hong Kong, Asia Pacific and beyond in examining the challenges of double ageing and addressing them by offering proposals and strategies through social innovation.
