Jockey Club Enhancing Youth Empathy Project through Immersive Visualisation enables young people to develop compassion for
1) ethnic minority groups
2) the elderly and disabled
3) nature and the environment
The Project is funded by The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust and led by City University of Hong Kong. It comprises three related programmes that utilise the University’s strengths in immersive visualization technology. Young people will be encouraged to develop their skills through “perspective-taking” and “role-taking”, and create innovative solutions that meet the challenges and problems that different groups face.
