The EO Awareness Campaign 2020 held online this year had successfully drawn to a close on 8 October 2020.  We are delighted to share with you the encouraging response this year.  The Campaign activities in total had attracted over 1 500 attendees.  For individual events like the Kick-off ceremony, there were over 110 participants; over 200 students had joined the sharing of “Respect Life : Angel Garden” held on 6 October 2020 delivered by Rev. Dominic Chan Chi-ming, the Awardee of 2019 Hong Kong Humanity Award from Hong Kong Red Cross; over 150 participants had attended the Traumatic Events Psychological Support Introductory Workshop held on 30 September 2020 delivered by Clinical Psychologists from the Hong Kong Red Cross; a total of over 1 000 participants had attended the various mental and emotional training seminars held during the Campaign week.  Looking ahead, we will continue to organize more activities to enhance equal opportunities and raise diversity awareness for building an inclusive campus for us all! 

Apart from the encouraging number of participants, we have also received supportive written feedback from students. Some of which are picked below, and let’s hear what students say about what they’ve learnt after the event.  Cheers!
