Swire Properties Placemaking Academy 2021
is a competition that welcome students from all Hong Kong universities. It will once again put the next generation of local youth in the spotlight, as they work together during a six-month apprenticeship to make the White Christmas Street Fair a greener, smarter and more engaging event for the greater Hong Kong community.
Students join as a team with five participants. They will pitch ideas to the organisers, with a maximum of two teams winning a paid six-month project apprenticeship at the Swire Properties Placemaking Academy, that will allow students to obtain credits considered in the course structure diagram of their degree.
During the apprenticeship they will learn from the Company’s senior management and event-planning experts, as well as from a host of thought leaders from the design and community-planning industries. Most importantly, they can further develop their innovation skills and broaden their horizons.
