Hong Kong is famous as an international city. A lot of activities happened here involve people and organisations across different parts of the World. In July FSES gathering, we jointly organise with Hong Kong Federation of Youth Groups and go international with three social entrepreneurs from Korea, Colombia and Hong Kong to share about their social entrepreneurship experience and the work that they are doing which are unique to their places. This will definitely broaden our views on the social enterprises outside Hong Kong as well as in Hong Kong.
