HKU Sau Po Centre on Ageing collaborated with the Education Bureau in 2019 on a gerontology education project. A set of learning and teaching material has been developed to assist liberal studies teachers in teaching population ageing, healthy ageing and ageism in secondary schools. On June 26, 2019, 144 senior secondary students and their liberal studies teachers from two schools were invited to participate in a knowledge enrichment seminar hosted by Dr Vivian Lou, director of HKU Sau Po Centre on Ageing. In the seminar students shared their expectation on getting old themselves and learned the concept of healthy ageing and how it associates with the quality of life in the society. Under the guidance of 11 older adults who were co-instructors, students understood what ageism was and how it would affect older adults' well-being.
