TEDxTongChongSt is named after Tong Chong Street, an iconic street on the eastern part of Hong Kong Island, epitomizes the spirit of inheriting the past to inspire the future. The name "Tong Chong" in Chinese means "sugar factory". In the early 20th century, Tong Chong Street was home to the largest and most sophisticated sugar refinery east of the Suez Canal. Today, Tong Chong Street has evolved into a vibrant hub for technology, media, art and design. TEDxTongChongSt was created in the summer of 2019 by a group of young leaders in Hong Kong with focus on the mission to bring together an extraordinary community of thought leaders, disrupters and change makers across multiple disciplines to explore the power of ideas and shed some light on the future of our work, life, society and the world.
We are grateful for our partners including Meta (previously known as Facebook), Feva, Tech for Good Asia, Hong Kong Macau International Exchange Foundation, and Centre for Civil Society and Governance at the University of Hong Kong. TEDxTongChongSt will not come into realization without our partners’ support. We’re also open to more partnerships and collaborations with other organizations and individuals who share the same passion to support local community development in Hong Kong.
