Partner Events under 2023 youthfest@HK

Application Guideline


To dovetail with the policy objectives on youth development and the Youth Development Blueprint, the Government organises an annual youthfest@HK starting from 2023. Different sectors of the community are invited to jointly organise a wide spectrum of activities for engaging and helping the youth to develop their potential, enhance their knowledge, and share their experience, etc. To steer and co-ordinate different sectors in jointly organising youthfest@HK, the Youth Development Commission has set up a dedicated Action Group on Youth Festival to plan and promote youthfest@HK. The themes for 2023 youthfest@HK are "Positive Thinking", "Active Thinking" and "Positivity".
