Generation HK

Event Closed

More Details

Teenage activists turned politicians, multi-millionaire super tutors and artists fighting censorship—these are the stories of Generation HK. From radically different backgrounds yet with a common legacy, these young people have little attachment to the era of British colonial rule or today’s China. Instead they see themselves as Hong Kongers, an identity both reinforced and threatened by the rapid expansion of Beijing’s influence. Join Financial Times South China correspondent Ben Bland and moderator Benjamin Haas as they explore Generation HK and the struggles—bitter yet grounded in hope—taking place beneath the gleaming facade of modern Hong Kong.
