Background of Co-organiser
Oxfam is a worldwide development organisation that mobilises the power of people against poverty. The mission of Oxfam Hong Kong is to work with poor and vulnerable communities and local partners to fight against the injustices of poverty and inequality. Oxfam Hong Kong facilitates Global Citizenship Education (GCE) in Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan. Through participatory and empowering learning processes, learners are enabled to learn through action about the interdependence between different peoples or countries. Learners will gain skills to discern, in everyday life, the linkages between the world, one’s nation, one’s community and oneself, and also to think critically and to respond proactively to issues of global poverty and injustice.
Students will assist in:
- Developing Global Citizenship Education online and printed materials (e.g. climate change, poverty, value education);
- Supporting online and/or face-to-face interactive youth and children’s workshops and activity logistics; and
- Reaching and developing youth and public initiatives.
