My Sustainability Goals for 2024:

Hong Kong’s social service sector must pursue sustainability by leveraging technology to enhance service delivery, promoting mental health and wellness, and aligning with the city’s carbon neutrality goals. Adopting innovative digital tools, providing holistic care, and implementing eco-friendly practices can streamline operations, improve accessibility and build a more resilient, inclusive community.
