LSESU HONG KONG PUBLIC AFFAIRS AND SOCIAL SERVICE
Home to one of the largest Hong Kong student societies in the UK
Founded in 1999, LSESU Hong Kong Public Affairs and Social Service Society (LSESU HKPASS) aims to raise awareness on public issues and encourage social involvement amongst Hong Kong students at the London School of Economics and Political Science in contributing back to society. Working closely with HKETO London and Friends of LSE in Hong Kong, LSESU HKPASS is one of the leading Hong Kong student societies in the UK.
HKPASS is one of the few student societies at the London School of Economics and Political Science that puts such a high emphasis on public affairs and social services. Over the past decade, we have organised talks delivered by distinguished guests from all over the world, and from a wide range of sectors and backgrounds including Mr Geoffrey Ma, current Chief Justice of the Court of Final Appeal, and Sir Donald Tsang, former Chief Executive of Hong Kong. Through these, we hope to broaden our members’ opportunities to expand their social horizon to different walks of life.
On the social services aspect, we have also liased and cooperated with numerous charity organisations, both in Hong Kong and in the United Kingdom, to provide our members with a broad spectrum of community service experiences.
Our flagship mentorship programme includes over 20 top legislative councillors, bankers and lawyers, and our flagship LSE Forum is the largest of its kind in the UK. In recognition of our active participation and contribution to the LSE community, LSESU HKPASS has been awarded numerous LSE Students' Union Awards since 2002, including the Golden Star Award as one of the top 3 amongst over 150 student societies at the LSE.
