The Knowledge Transfer Partnership project “Transferring Knowledge of Tackling Double Demands Faced by Women through Training up Cooperative Organizers” is built on an observation that the cooperative is an important vehicle for helping women meet the double demands: to participate in the work economy and to provide care in the family. In Hong Kong, there is a lack of sufficient number of ‘cooperative organisers’, who have the knowledge and skills for setting up and managing cooperatives. To address this issue, Dr Sam YU Wai-kam from the Department of Social Work worked with Hong Kong Women Workers’ Association (HKWWA) and developed a training team for training up cooperatives organisers. The project team also established a new cooperative canteen in HKBU Shek Mun campus.
The video included some highlights of the project activities such as the training workshops and the cooperative canteen in HKBU Shek Mun campus.
