Hong Kong Future Pioneers (HKFP), formerly named Hong Kong Young Leaders’ Congress (HKYLC), has been organised since 2003 by Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Outstanding Students’ Union (HKSAROSU), as our flagship event. This year, the renowned programme has come to its 10th year.

With the programme theme “How to Shape Our Future Hong Kong?”, HKFP allows participants to express and share their distinctive viewpoints with other students in certain areas of the fundamental elements comprising our future Hong Kong. With the main concept of “Learn from Professionals. Work with Community.”, we aim to broaden our participants’ horizons, sharpen their leadership qualities, and help them appreciate the differences among a community through a series of interactive workshops, lectures, visits, field trips and conferences by related professionals and experts. We would publicise our programme through social platforms on the Internet and media so as to gain public’s attention on our discussion topic. It had gained tremendous support and positive response from different sectors.

This year, our theme is “Cultural Conservation in Hong Kong”. We wish to gather elite students from different secondary schools to explore the cultural development in Hong Kong via workshops and conferences, and help them equip with essential leadership skills during the process. Guests and professionals from various fields will be invited to deliver speeches and be the judges of the final presentations by our participants, as we believe young leaders shall be nurtured by great inspirations.

Theme of 2013
“Cultural Conservation in Hong Kong”

Hong Kong, rated as one of the alpha-level cities in the high competitive world arena, has been focusing on the search of economic opportunities to uphold its niche. While skyscrapers and infrastructures are building up to support the momentum of economic growth, however, as Hong Kong Future Pioneers, we do not simply take Hong Kong as a money-making machine or a piece of land with high-value. Instead, we regard Hong Kong as a living city with its charisma built upon its diversified cultural background.

Therefore, the theme of Hong Kong Future Pioneers 2013 is “Cultural Conservation in Hong Kong”. Through various workshops and activities, we would like our future leaders to learn about the cultural dimension of Hong Kong through sharing with artists and professionals, and to explore the ways of cultural conversation in the realm of urban planning and policy generation. We believe Future Pioneers of Hong Kong will not merely Grow the City, but Grow with the City.
