Event Details

The seminar on “Cognitive Well-being – Cultural Diversity and Inclusion” is jointly organized by the Sau Po Centre on Ageing, Department of Social Work & Social Administration, The University of Hong Kong, and the Hong Kong Alzheimer’s Disease Association. It aims to examine and explore cultural-sensitive understanding on cognitive well-being, focusing on ethnic and cultural diversity in Hong Kong. The seminar will be the first to explore cultural diversity and adaptation to cognitive well-being in the Chinese and diverse ethnicities of Hong Kong. It is believed that a cultural sensitive approach fills in the gap in both academic and public discourse would enhance community awareness and empower social inclusion in Hong Kong.

At the heart of this seminar and our collective organizations is the WHO’s conclusion, “comprehensive public health action on population ageing is urgently needed; this will require fundamental shifts, not just in the things we do, but in how we think about ageing itself”. To this end, the seminar will facilitate deeper discussion in areas on best strategies to achieve public education, timely identification, and community-based support for people with diversified ethnic backgrounds in Hong Kong.
