Geron-Infusion Education (GIE) is an initiative jointly developed and implemented by The University of Hong Kong under the “Campus Ageing Mix Project for University Students” (GIE- CAMPUS) and The Hong Kong Polytechnic University under the “Infusion Active Ageing Education” project (GIE- IAAE), and initiated and funded by ZeShan Foundation, from present to July, 2020.
Project CAMPUS is run by the Sau Po Centre on Ageing under Faculty of Social Sciences.
The Chinese translation for Geron-Infusion Education is 齡活學堂. At The University of Hong Kong, this project may be advertised by the Chinese name 齡活學堂- CAMPUS.
We believe all older adults can embrace who they are,
can define their future, and can change the world.
Imparting knowledge of healthy and active ageing has always been concentrated in nursing, social work and gerontology fields. Project CAMPUS is the first to infuse gerontological knowledge on the University level in multiple other fields. Specifically at the pilot phrase, CAMPUS aims at the four faculties of Medicine, Law, Architecture and Engineering, alongside gerontological-infusion activities for all at HKU.
We believe project CAMPUS would play a significant role in promoting healthy ageing among the undergraduate students, the academic communities, the University, and the community as a whole.
Additional years provide the chance to pursue new activities such as further education or a long neglected passion, while continuing to make valuable contributions to family and community. But it all depends on the health factor.
