MWYO is a youth-oriented think tank. It was set up as a policy research institute to study issues that affect Hong Kong’s young people, and to engage them in public policy discussions.
Originally a team founded by Mr. Ming Wai Lau who was appointed as the Chairman of the Commission on Youth in April 2015, MWYO has over the past two years grown and doubled in size. Yet, its objective has not changed – to listen to Hong Kong’s youth and channel their views and concerns into the public policy making process.
Going forward, MWYO will continue to generate knowledge and discourse to support Hong Kong’s youth development, in ways that are innovative and authentic to our young people.
MWYO’s organizational structure is as follows:
MWYO’s past research output includes the following, which have been presented or submitted to the Government, secondary schools, tertiary institutions, charities and other non-governmental entities.
