Project details

Jockey Club ‘Ednovation Fest’

Jockey Club ‘Ednovation Fest’ (The Fest) is a pioneer showcase of local and global innovations in education. Year-round events include seminars and panel discussions led by local and overseas social and education pioneers, workshops and incubation programs, all working towards advocating social and education innovations. By exhibiting local and global innovations in schools with teachers and students, the Fest facilitates dialogues between schools and tri-sector pioneers to foster an in-depth understanding and collaboration.

This year’s theme is “Future of Learning”. In a series of events including large-scale experiential days, Future of Learning Symposium, various workshops and dialogue sessions, the Fest hopes to expand the imagination of education through understanding the learning process and the best conditions under which students learn best. We hope the events will foster a deeper understanding on how learning happens, leading towards a redesign of learning journeys that suit students’ needs and enable them to build the future with their own hands.

The Fest is co-organized by Ednovators, EDiversity, Good Lab and HKICC Lee Shau Kee School of Creativity, and generously supported by the Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust.
