About the event:
We are in a time of pursuing social value and impact under an unpredictable environment with complex problems, which is why it is important for us to learn, explore and establish the capability to foresee the trend throughout the networks. With more interaction and engagement in the communities, we can encourage people to improve and make a better resilience in our society together. We need to understand what are the difficulties and challenges that people are facing in different social issues, especially during the pandemic. How do public and private sectors utilise limited resources and capacity to make a social impact? And how do they contact each other with collaboration in the communities? In this event, Noel Hatch, Head of Strategy Camden Council and Sarah Holiday, Founder of Telescope will share with us their experience in tackling the social issue with co-design, collaboration through their network and the key insights to learn. The speech will be followed by showcasing student projects in community, emerging technology, policy areas, and Q&A discussion.
