I·CARE Cross-generational Integration Programme: Activities Update

The keynote of the I·CARE Cross-generational Integration Programme of this academic year lies on the reinforcement of communication between students and their senior family members for achieving a harmonious family relationship.  Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, only breakout sessions (most of them are online) have been planned in this year for the programme under which plenary events were held for both elderly and youth (of the secondary schools and in our University) in the past.

Further to the “Pastel Nagomi Art Workshop” and “Kalimba Workshop”, members of the organising committee of this prgramme rolled out the“Environmental Bath Salt Workshop” on the 24th of last month and the “Decoupage Glass Workshop” on the 8th of this month.  The “salt” one was collaborated with the Yan Oi Tong Hong Kong Toi Shan Association Neighbourhood Elderly Centre and held physically.  With the strict observance of the epidemic prevention measures, six senior members of the said centre and six CUHK students worked together on making bath salt by using coffee grounds.  The workshop not only enabled the participants to relax, but also facilitated interaction between the two generations.  As for the “glass” one, participants comprising six pairs of CUHK students and their respective senior family members acquired the techniques of making glass plates by “Decoupage” online from an experienced handcraft tutor.  There was also an interactive game encouraging each participant to hug and transmit love to his/ her partner.

To enrich the variety of activities and to cater to the participants’ tastes, this Centre is inviting CUHK students to offer suggestions on the topic of the activities with small-group video conferencing format.  Any ideas could be sent to here.  As a token of our appreciation, students whose entries are received on or before 15 June 2021 (Tuesday) and adopted by this Centre finally will obtain the CUHK 2021 Desktop Calendar.  This calendar had received an overwhelming response once released and were sold out swiftly.

The I·CARE Cross-generational Integration Programme aims at facilitating interaction between the aged and the young, so as to promote mutual understanding and respect across different generations.  For more information, please click here.  Any enquiries could be directed to Miss He of this Centre via 3943 9859 (Tel) or athenahe@cuhk.edu.hk (Email).
