Kowloon City in Transformation
The Kowloon City Themed Walking Trail is the longest themed walking trail (6.5 km) in Hong Kong currently. The objective of this Walking Trail is to promote heritage preservation as well as arts and cultural development in the district by connecting residents and stakeholders in Kowloon City, To Kwa Wan and Hung Hom. Moreover, it is hoped that the project would keep the local neighbourhood and community relationship even in face of great changes in the future arising from redevelopment and railway construction in the district.
Participating students will assist in the Community History and Heritage Learning Project. Duties include:
- Explore and document cultural and social assets of Kowloon City;
- Design and implement enquiry-based learning activities to motivate students to explore their community history, in and out of the classroom; and
- Develop teaching kit for the aforementioned activities.
