So if housing and upstream issues are improved, can youth issues be solved?

For example, Leung Yuk-wai said that in the "Youth Committee Self-Recommendation Program" launched by the government in the past three years, more than 6,000 people have signed up. About 400 people have successfully joined the government advisory committee. How many people do you want?" He suggested that the consultation model can be expanded, and a Focus Group (focus group) can be established to let them propose a Project Plan and participate in more community building, thereby increasing participation and a sense of belonging.

Said that all sectors of society should regain dialogue with young people

He believes that all sectors of society should start to regain dialogue with young people, regardless of their way out. Residential or spiritual needs, etc., emphasize that it must be done step by step.
