Event Details:

COVID-19 is posing unprecedented challenges to the global community. In Hong Kong, we have been fighting the epidemic for several months. A concerted effort from different sectors in the community would be needed to win this battle.


COVID-19 is now a global pandemic, and the situation is constantly evolving. SDSN-HK hopes to share our experience in Hong Kong and look forward to explore with you:



  • Interventions adopted in Hong Kong to fight COVID-19

  • Psychobehavioural responses of the general public towards the outbreak, and insights for intervention and risk communication strategies

  • How we may mobilise support measures especially for vulnerable communities from philanthropic perspectivesHow we may address post-outbreak challenges and build the city’s resilience
