Founded in February 2020, the ISSIA Magazine is a leading youth-led social issues publication and the first inter-school magazine in Hong Kong; we target SDG 4 (quality education), with a focus on target 4.7 (global citizenship) as a community-driven, peer-to-peer platform for global issues education.
ISSIA Magazine ED1
At 95 pages, we feature a plethora of student work, ranging from articles and poems, to student artwork and photography submissions across Hong Kong. We discuss LGBTQ+ Identity in Hong Kong, mental health, restorative justice, capitalism, gentrification, foreign domestic workers, refugees and more! We had a total of 3000+ reads.
Our online media publication (issiamagazine.com) serves as the hub for our online magazine content. We have published more than 170+ articles, in addition to international contributions. We also introduced “ISSIA Weekly”, a weekly roundup of select articles from ISSIA Online!
