This programm once again put the next generation of HK youth in the spotlight, as they work together during a 6-month apprenticeship to make the White Christmas Street Fair a greener, smarter and more engaging event for the greater Hong Kong community.
This year, 12 students from CUHK, HKUST and PolyU were offered a 6-month apprenticeship. Together with nine student alumni from CityU and HKUST, these 21 students designed, organized and executed the White Christmas Express initiative.
In addition, students also took part in:
• Masterclasses: Totaling more than 100 hours; lectures by industry experts and our department heads, from a variety of backgrounds such as architecture, urban planning, design and communications.
• Mentorship Sessions: Students were mentored by our senior management, event-planning experts, and thought leaders from the design and community-planning industries.
• Buddy Scheme: Students were matched with our management trainees to get a fuller understanding of our corporate culture.
The 2020 programme has been included in CUHK, HKUST and PolyU's curriculum, with course units.
