A Greener Future: Let’s All Step Up | A GBA Youth Forum Co-Hosted By Lingnan University And Shenzhen University


The Hong Kong Lingnan University and Shenzhen University jointly hosted the inaugural GBA Youth Forum on 15 May 2023, with the theme "A Greener Future: Let's All Step Up". The objectives were to enhance young people's understanding of and interest in environmental, social, and governance (ESG), green financial technology, culture, and innovation, thereby fostering the sustainable development of society. The forum also aimed to encourage them to grasp the opportunities available in the Greater Bay Area (GBA) to launch their start-ups. Partnering with Tencent Games and Fusion Bank, the one-day forum was held on the campus of Lingnan University, with live broadcasts. Over 30 leaders from political, commercial, industry, academic, and research sectors attended the event and shared their perspectives and insights on topics related to the theme. More than 400 teaching staff and students from secondary schools and universities, government officials, representatives from various industries, and entrepreneurs from the two places attended the forum, making the sharings and discussions stimulating and fruitful. Following the success of this inaugural Forum, Lingnan University plans to host the second GBA Youth Forum in the fall of this year.
