2019-03-19

The Hong Kong Sheng Kung Hui Welfare Council (Welfare Council) received funding from the Urban Renewal Fund in 2018 to operate the 6-year Kowloon City Themed Walking Trail project. On 19th March, the Welfare Council celebrated the grand opening of the Information Centre of the Development of the Kowloon City Themed Walking Trail, where Mr Franco Kwok, JP, District Officer (Kowloon City), Mr Joseph Wong, Chief Executive of Urban Renewal Fund, and Mr Pun Kwok-wah, JP, Chairman of the Kowloon City District Council, hosted the kick-off ritual. 

 

Speaking at the open ceremony, Dr Jane Lee, Director of the Welfare Council, said, “The information centre is a good place to connect people, and exchange opinions with different stakeholders in the community. Through participatory design, we hope to facilitate social participation in the development of Kowloon City and the themed walking trail.”

 

The information centre can reach stakeholders in the district, promote the walking trail, connect and engage with community. Last year, the Welfare Council also invited elders in the neighbourhood to give advices for the design of the elder-friendly Transformation Hub. Visitors can come to get in touch with the Transformation Hub.

 

More than that, the Welfare Council designed two mobile applications with AR features, which allowed players to venture into historical stories or visit historical architectures.
