Established in 2015, Golden Age Foundation (GAF) was launched as a non-profit organisation (Charity Registration Number: 91/ 14446) by our founder and chair Ms Rebecca Yung and a group of social entrepreneurs. Our mission at GAF supports the Golden Age community of individuals aged 45 and above to lead fulfilling, healthy and quality lifestyles. We are also passionate about promoting the Golden Age Economy and establishing cross-sector and inter-generational collaborations and innovative platforms.
In the last five years, GAF continues to take the lead in social innovation and tackles population ageing issues through training programmes, including the Golden Age Fellows programme, the Golden Age Docent programme, the Golden Age – Climate Change & Conservation Ambassador Programme, School Dialogues and the Pledge of Love from Generation to Generation programme. The programmes are specially designed to foster cross-generational harmony and allow Golden Agers to give back to society by discovering new passions and talents.
In 2016, GAF also launched the annual Golden Age Expo and Summit to cultivate cross-sector collaborations. Aiming to establish Hong Kong as a smart ageing city, the event showcases global innovative products, services and solutions and has reached over 25,000 members and participants. The expo and summit also gather leaders and entrepreneurs from all sectors to share and exchange experiences and promote collaborative efforts across different sectors to develop Hong Kong into a smart ageing city.
