Morning assembly on the theme of social innovation (24-9-2020)
30.10.2020

On 24th September, 2020, for the National Education Assembly, we were honoured to have invited World Vision to speak on the topic of “Social Innovation for the Future- innovative designs and technologies”. The talk revolved around the issues on how social innovations have improved the quality of life among the socially-disadvantaged; the need to be people-oriented in the whole design and innovation process; and students were encouraged to build up their awareness and take actions to respond to the needs of the needy.

The talk was inspiring and students responded with good feedbacks. Some of the highlights of students’ feedbacks and reflections were presented as below:

 

扶貧可以從社創,可以從現在,可以從我們開始。”      

要能真正幫助貧困人士,就要先瞭解他們真正的困難和需要的東西,才能對症下藥。

我們應該向那些在困境中的人伸出援手,如果他們需要,我們就提供建議,或者傾聽。

不分年齡,每個人都可以為社會服務,應該多點關心社會。

要幫助有需要的人不應只是紙上談兵,而是真真正正地設計出產品幫助他們,這比起捐物資來得更好。

不是只有理科才能創新,也不是只有第三世界或者貧困人口才需要創新幫助,我們也可以為香港的人群創新,為社會出一分力。

幫助弱勢社群,不一定只局限於義工工作,更多的是自身的意識。 

就算自己微不足道,我們也可以盡自己的能力去做,儲備知識,在未來看看自己能否出一分力。

雖然自身的影響力或者能力都幫不了太多,但我們可多加留意身邊的人和事,在不經意間去幫助別人。

將知識、技能和想法運用在解決普羅大眾的日常生活問題,不單是人民的福澤,同時也是對自己學術以及想法上的認可。

有時候原來愛很簡單,不用給很多昂貴的資源,只要有心用最簡單最純樸的物料做一些他們需要的已經很足夠。

“Seeing people from the society like designers, scientists etc work to together in order to improve the lives of those people in need, make me feel like we all are a big family.”

現在明白到科技的偉大和重要, 而且可以在意想不到的地方, 運用一些想像力, 便可以以普通簡單的物料幫助到人們, 我真的十分佩服他們,並且希望更多有需要的人可以得到幫助。

“Innovation can be based on some ready-made materials as well. It is less difficult than we thought and they just appear in our daily lives and we just need to think more.”

“This assembly is like introducing me to another drastically different world and makes me find interest in social innovation and what they will have for not only the poor, but also our society. ”

“There is a lot more that we can do for other people in need around the world. It is something other than just simple donation but we can take better actions after considering the conditions of the needy.”

“Discussion with people from all walks of life can always spark some new ideas and different points of view so one of the most essential characters students should possess in the 21st century is communication and collaboration with people.”

每個人都值得被重視,每個人都配得擁有機會改善自己的生活。創新不只為已發展國家開發新科技,更能提升為發展中國家人民的生活水平,邁向更美好、方便的將來。”
