Urbanisation in recent decades has been accelerating on an unprecedented scale, fundamentally transforming the opportunities and challenges that cities face today. There is a need to create a common platform that facilitates dialogue on addressing the social needs of 21st century cities.

The Philanthropy for Better Cities Forum is the first of its kind in Asia to focus on metropolitan social issues. Convened by The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust, the Forum is aimed at:

  • Fostering in-depth, unbiased conversations
  • Stimulating fresh and innovative thinking in response to pressing challenges
  • Encouraging cross-sectoral collaboration

The Forum will provide delegates with:

  • Actionable insights in addressing metropolitan social issues shared by internationally-renowned speakers and experts
  • International case studies on social issues with additional flavour from the perspectives of Hong Kong and China
  • Increased awareness of various innovative ways that different sectors can create social impact
  • An unrivalled opportunity to meet like-minded delegates to exchange ideas and explore future collaboration
