Summer School for Global Leadership
This intensive summer education programme aims to create a culturally diverse learning environment for the participants and therefore to present them the best learning experience. It offers a unique curriculum combining “Exclusive Visits” to corporates, start-ups and the community, and “Interactive Workshops” that address a range of global issues. On the other hand, past participants are invited to join as organising committee, which voluntarily assist in the planning and daily operation during the School. Since 2008, over 1,400 students from over 32 different countries/ regions have participated in the School over the past 10 years.
With prominent local guest leaders since 2004, Leaders to Leaders is now featuring upcoming young Hong Kong and overseas leaders who interact with local young leaders and bring inspirations with co-creation. This project aims at connecting global young leaders with Hong Kong young leaders. Each year, 9-12 Global Leaders recognised by World Bank, United Nations, One Young World, Forbes 30 under 30, Global Shapers and other well-known international institutes will be invited to provide face-to-face training and cocreation project for young leaders in Hong Kong. Outstanding participants will be awarded Overseas Apprenticeship with sponsorship for flight and accommodation, following the Global Leaders back to their country for around 1 month to execute their social projects.
The purpose of Global Seminar is to nurture cohorts of positive and inspirational young leaders with global perspective, spirit of innovation, and a sense of social responsibility. The seminar connects around 30 top tri-sector gurus, including 3 government senior officers, annually and foster cross-field collaboration in this fast-paced, complex era with diversified challenges ahead.

What has been specifically amazing for me has been dealing with different students, who have different dreams, desires, solutions that they want to work on, startups, ideas. Sharing my journey with them has been absolutely amazing, and also seeing how smart and intelligent the students of Hong Kong are. It has completely changed my view on what the future is going to be, if this is the kind of people who are going to be leading us tomorrow, then I think we are in for a treat.
