Kowloon City in Transformation: The Kowloon City Themed Walking Trail – Community History and Heritage Project

Background of Co-organiser

Hong Kong Sheng Kung Hui Welfare Council Limited

Established in 1966, the Hong Kong Sheng Kung Hui Welfare Council limited is one of the three leading social welfare organizations in Hong Kong. With a special focus on Community Care administered through Service Integration and Total Quality Management approaches, the Council offers a comprehensive range of services to users of all age groups and strata in the society, from infants to senior citizens of over a hundred years old. The Council also fosters mutual support and the caring spirit among volunteer members of the community, including commercial organizations, groups and schools, individuals and volunteers, in projects and services that help to build up a caring society.

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.
