Gerontech and Innovation Expo (Future Camp @ GIES)




 

The Hong Kong Council of Social Service (HKCSS 香港社會服務聯會) is inviting all our alumni to the Gerontech and Innovation Expo cum Summit ( Future Camp @ GIES) .

An important factor in enhancing the sustainability of an ageing society is effectiveness in facilitating advancements in relevant areas including assistive technology, inclusive design, etc. for enabling independent living and social participation of older adults in good health, comfort and safety. GIES provides a platform for all relevant parties, from experts, industry leaders and policymakers in relevant disciplines to the elderly persons and their families and careers to share their views and get stimulated, with the aim of enhancing public awareness on technology and innovation for the elderly and encouraging the development and adoption of relevant solutions in Hong Kong. This is our 3rd year to participate in the Future Camp. Past Future Camp. Participants will visit the elderly in various community centers.

社會要在人口老化的進程中得以持續發展,推動相關範疇(包括輔助科技及共融設計)的創新乃不可或缺的一環,以便讓長者能在健康、舒適及安全的環境下得以自主生活及參與社會。GIES 是一個平台予所有相關持分者,包括有關範疇的專家、行業領導者及政策制定者以至長者與他們的家人及照顧者交流意見及得到新的啟發,從而提高公眾對長者科技與創新的認識及促進相關解決方案在香港的發展及應用,參加者將會於不同的社區中心內探訪老人。
