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.

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.

Theme of 2018
“Liberty Mosaic – A Collage of the Blurred Human Rights in Hong Kong”

When it comes to human rights issues in Hong Kong, most students are able to mention different topics – gender equality, migrants issues, to name but a few.

However, how many of them are actually familiar with these topics? Some human rights issues are only in the limelight for a short period of time, usually because of related breaking news hitting the headlines, while others, sadly, are simply neglected.

“Mosaic” is an image made from the assemblage of bits and pieces of colours, and “liberty mosaic”, under this context, has two meanings – first, it means most people only have a blurred image of human rights issues; second, it reminds us that human rights issues consist of different topics and in no way should we turn a blind eye to any of them.

Through HKFP 2018, we aim at encouraging high school students (Pioneers) to take actions to contribute to society, enhance their sensitivity and awareness to social problems, broaden their horizons by enriching their knowledge in social issues, as well as developing their leadership qualities and cooperation skills.

Opening Ceremony

In the opening ceremony, Miss Karen KONG from the Faculty of Law, The University of Hong Kong will be delivering a short lecture on the general review of human rights issues in Hong Kong and intersectionality of human rights.

Workshop 1: LGBT Issues

LGBT has been a hot topic around the globe. To raise participants’ awareness of this issue and promote respect for all people irrespective of their sexual orientation, we have successfully invited Amnesty International Hong Kong (AIHK) as the workshop sponsor of Workshop 1. The LGBTI Group of AIHK will have a brief introduction on the current situation in Hong Kong.

Day 2: 7th July, 2018

Workshop 2: Conference – Gender and Sexual Rights

Workshop 2 will be held in form of a conference. Participants will be representing different stake holders and exploring the prejudiced gender roles in the context of Hong Kong through a conference similar to the format of Legislative Council meetings. It aims at raising participants’ awareness towards the negative consequences of gender stereotypes through an interactive discussion.

Exposure Camp: 14th-16th July, 2018

Workshop 3: Our Children, Our Future

In Workshop 3, a non-profit organization which aims at improving Hong Kong children’s rights, will be invited to introduce the concept of “children’s rights”, and to emphasize its significance and raise participants’ concern over deprived children’s rights in Hong Kong.

Workshop 4: Looking Through the Eyes of Migrants

In Workshop 4, participants will first take part in an interactive role-playing game, experiencing the actual situation of migrants in Hong Kong and develop participants’ empathy towards new migrants. After that, the workshop sponsor of Workshop 4, The PathFinders HK, will hold the workshop to explore the possible solutions of this social issue.

Campaigns: 16th – 27th July, 2018

During the 12-day Campaign, participants will plan and take concrete actions to make positive changes to society regarding human rights. In the Campaign of the past few years, innovative and influential ideas and formats could be observed, including busking, setting up booths and carrying out social experiments. It is believed that through carrying out concrete actions, participants can utilize their effort and knowledge to deliver positive message to the general public.

Day 3: 28th July, 2018

Closing and Prize Giving Ceremony

In the Closing ceremony, participants will present the achievements and outcomes of Campaigns. Our honorary judges, Prof Eric CHEUNG from the Faculty of Law, The University of Hong Kong, will comment on their Campaigns and provide relevant feedbacks.
