UN World Youth Skills Day

To celebrate UN World Youth Skills Day, we partnered with KidsforSDGs to organize an event that brought together 10+ youth-led organizations and leading changemakers in Hong Kong for a day of upskilling workshops (both peer-to-peer expert-led), roundtable discussions, networking and "troubleshooting sessions" — all to share skills, best practices and develop partnerships.

ISSIA X RTT Partnership

Co-organized with Reverse the Trend, the event explored the intersection between nuclear disarmament and climate activism, highlighting the role of youth. Speakers included Dr. Sue Wareham (Medical Association for Prevention of War), Dr. Muhadi Sugiono (Universitas Gadjah Mada), and amazing youth activists in APAC.

Youth NGO Mentorship Program

The Youth NGO Mentorship Program aims to advance youth-led change-making in Hong Kong. We provide newly founded student organizations with ample connections, resources, and guidance to ensure sustainability and impact in their projects.

 

For the first round of the programme, we paired student organizations with an experienced member from the ISSIA team, helping expand their social media presence, connecting them with relevant stakeholders, and guiding them through strategic management. We were able to help 10 student organizations across 5 schools. More to come!
