Enable Foundation is a non-profit social design agency with the aim to develop capacity training programmes and projects on design thinking & doing and creativity with individuals, organisations from private and public sectors. It was set up in Hong Kong after receiving a startup funding from HKSAR Government’s Social Innovation and Entrepreneurship Development (SIE) Fund to support its first cross-generational innovation programme called Social Innovation Design Lab (SI.DLab).
Nature of business: Social Design Services and Design Research
Social Innovation Lab （SI.DLab）
SI.D Lab is a 2-year capacity building and cross-generational innovation and social design programme. We invite partners with shared values and beliefs and collaborate to address the three social issues on ageing innovation in Hong Kong. Projects include “Fine Dying” which is how to co-design urban dying matters in the city with citizens; “Dementia Going”which generates ideas on how to bring people with dementia into community and “Productive Ageing” thinking how to age well with dignity in Hong Kong.
社創設計室是一個為期兩年的跨代共創計劃，啟民創社邀請了來自不同社會界別，擁有共同價值和信念的合作夥伴，攜手解決香港社會的三大老齡創新議題，項目包括：「死物習作」(Fine Dying)，與大眾共創設計與都市文化相關的「死物」；「腦化城市」(Dementia Going)致力激發新想法，讓腦退化症 (認知障礙症) 患者融入社區生活；「老力生產」(Productive Ageing)則探討如何在香港有尊嚴和健康地老去。
