ITSF YAC Youth Day event

By Danny Harrington, MD ITS Education Asia

On Saturday 19th the Youth advisory Committee of the ITS Foundation ran an event at Canadian International School Hong Kong as part of the UN Observance for International Youth Day (delayed from 12 Aug to allow HK school term to start).

The event was opened with remarks from ITSF Founder Danny Harrington and Matthew Shulte, Head of Global Engagement at CDNIS. The opening speech was delivered by Professor Veronique Lafon-Vinais from the Business School at HKUST and gave invaluable insight into some of the ways universities are adapting in academic and organizational practice to the demands of sustainability.

A panel of fantastic Hong Kong operators then convened to discuss their views on the need for Green Skills in the coming years. Step Ng of Body Banter, James Cunningham of Speed Sourcing, Raymond Mak of Farmacy HK Ltd, Stephanie Chan of Ocean Park and Jayme Ellis of Luuna Naturals, all gave brilliantly honest and up to date opinions on the needs for young people entering the workplace/space in the coming years.

After a fair for a range of youth organizations we had a youth panel of current senior students who are engaged in running organizations, to give their perspective. Kadence Wong, Sahil Harjani, Clarisse Poon, & Jane Poon shared their student experiences for all.

We closed with remarks from Anne Copeland who gave encouragement to all to keep up the good work.
