CAS: CAS Project LO6 Reflection

by Yi Nok Ryan on January 31, 2018

LO6 states that the student recognizes the global implications of local issues, is able to identify global issues in the local or national community, shows awareness of issues of global importance and takes concrete and appropriate actions in response to them either locally, nationally or internationally, gets involved in CAS projects addressing global issues in a local, national or international context, develops awareness and responsibility towards a shared humanity.

My CAS Project is focused on the local issue of poverty in Hong Kong, specifically within Sheung Wan and Central. There aren’t really global implications to this issue, but rather that this issue (i.e. poverty) is seen everywhere around the world – it would be hard (impossible, perhaps?) to find a country that does not have people living under the poverty line. This is no doubt an issue of global importance as the first goal within the United Nation’s 8 Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) was to eradicate extreme poverty and hunger.

My CAS Project is predominantly within a local context, as well as within a national context. One of the main purposes of the program I participated in was to inspire others who “tried” the program to become more personally aware, sensitive and responsible to those in need and to perhaps create a similar program in other parts of Hong Kong.
