New Community Initiative ‧ Golden Age Fellows @Central Market
City life is tense and stressful. Spare a 15-minute break and discover new meaning and value in life. Through a series of 15-minute experiential sessions, participate in new social innovation projects developed by our Golden Age Fellows to explore sports, health, community engagement, cross-generation inclusion and more topics specially curated for the golden age community.
On 4 February, we organised 21 member organisations to display the latest "Smart Ageing" products and services at the "Age-friendly Promenade" in Sheung Wan. Our main objective is to bring innovative concepts and actions into the community. Visitors showed great interest in the displays. At the same time, we organized seven talk shows and performances led by Golden Agers, bringing a lively atmosphere to the entire event.
