Urban Commons and Youth Innovation

How can ‘commoning’ —the practice of co-creation and collective governance—make cities more inclusive, sustainable, just and resilient? Combining  theoretical framework with social innovation practices, this programme aims to nurture youngsters to create community projects based on the principles of commons, fostering community-based lifestyles, supporting social economy, protecting labour rights and promoting sustainable consumption.

The inaugural edition focuses on Tuen Mun, Tin Shui Wai and Yuen Long, connecting Lingnan University with organisations and residents in the neighbouring districts via the network of Light Rail, the public transport serving only the northwest New Territories of Hong Kong.
