After two stormy years in 2019 & 2020, it seems clear that our plans can never keep up with all those changes. How can we bite the bullet at this challenging moment? How can social entrepreneurship and social innovation make a difference and build a resilient society?

The Hong Kong Council of Social Service will organise the “Hong Kong Dialogue 2021 – Youth wellbeing and Health” on December 3 – 4, 2021, gathering friends from the social enterprise, social innovation sector, academia and civil society to explore how to connect and co-create in the new normal through seminars and experiential workshops!

About the Webinar:

Around the world, social movements have adapted to unexpected circumstances of the COVID-19 pandemic. Following a first article providing a broad overview of social movements role and agency during the first stage of the COVID-19 lockdown, this contribution will examine four evolutions in progressive movements in different countries that have been intensified by the pandemic and the lockdown. (1) Internal solidarity, mutual aid and organizing have taken an increasing space in various movements. (2) The feminization of movements has intensified. (3) The pandemic has fostered a further digitalization of various movements activities that often combines with an increasing investment at the local scale. (4) Social control and state repression have intensified in various countries.
