The Group Sense Social Innovation and Sustainable Development Award (GSSA) is a competition under the United College Social Innovation and Experiential Learning Project. It aims to promote social innovation and to initiate sustainable development of the campus and the society. Through professional training and consultation, we encourage students to think from different perspectives and turn their creative ideas into some innovative projects which could help solve some social problems. We anticipate that their projects could effectively respond to the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) promoted by the United Nations and will progressively develop and contribute to the sustainable development of a harmonious society.
If you wish to solve some social problems, to start working on your innovative ideas, you should join the Group Sense Social Innovation and Sustainable Development Award 2022-23! The competition is now open for application from 14 November to 13 January 2023. Both undergraduates and post-graduates are welcome with group participation. Group leader must be a student of United College and no limitation to other members. For more details, please refer to the College website: https://www.uc.cuhk.edu.hk/siel/news/.
