Social Innovation Design Lab (SI.DLab)

Social Innovation Design (SI.D Lab) is a 2-year capacity building, cross-generational innovation and social design programme. We have invited partners with shared values and beliefs to collaboratively address three social issues on ageing innovation in Hong Kong. The Projects include “Fine Dying” which involves members of the public co-designing “ Objects of Death “ related to urban cultures; “Dementia Going”which generates ideas to bring people with dementia integrate into community and “Productive Ageing” about how to age well with creativity and dignity in Hong Kong.
