Connect for Change 2024 - Global Service Day
Social issues such as poverty, health, education, equality and climate change have been amplified after the pandemic. While the society is recovering from the crisis, many of us have lost a sense of community amidst virtual life. We need to rebuild connections with the community more than ever.
HKUST Connect brought back Global Service Day in Connect for Change as a joint effort of all University members to engage with the community. Coinciding with Global Youth Service Day, students, staff and alumni will venture out into the community in April to participate in various community service opportunities and connect for change together.
Create a culture of contribution: Instill a deep sense of service in the entire university population, including staff, students and alumni.
Work together for the common good: Mobilize the entire campus to join hands in a meaningful and memorable endeavor, making a lasting impact as a university, not only through academic excellence but also through unity in diversity.
Build human connections: Bring individuals inside and outside the campus together for a shared positive experience, laying the foundation for lasting relationships in the future.
As the kick-off event of Global Service Day, students, staff and representatives from collaborating organizations involved in different service activities will join the ceremony to celebrate the start of our advocacy and changemaking event.
