The event was co-organized by Pok Oi and CLP. Students had participated a design thinking workshop specially designated for them to identify the substantial needs of the elderly they visit and design activities aligning with the needs by exercising Empathy, an intrinsic value of human being.
On the event day, around 70 students firstly attended an “Energy Saving & Electricity Safety Seminar” shared by the CLP volunteers with the elderly, hundreds of people filled the room with vigor and laughter instantly. After the talk, students were paired up with the elderly played switch sports (motion sensing games), made eco- Christmas ornaments and chit chat together. One of the elderly even invited the students to play badminton outside the center after playing badminton motion sensing game. It is so amazing that intergenerational harmony was truly achieved and experienced among the youth and the elderly.
