Biography of the speaker:

Mr Ricky Yu, Founder and CEO of Light Be (要有光)

Ricky Yu is a social entrepreneur. He founded HK's first social real estate company, Light Be, in 2010. Yu envisions a socially productive housing system in Hong Kong that could inspire this generation to thrive through challenges.

Yu is a member of the Town Planning Board, a member of the Expert Advisory Panel for the Study Related to Artificial Islands in the Central Waters and was a member of the Task Force on Land Supply.

Synopsis of the event:

Are the housing we built still able to inspire? This is perhaps one of the most important questions architects, surveyors and planners need to answer this generation. Yu is going to share how Light Be develops housing schemes to meet the aspirations of impoverished youth families and how these families resiliently move upward.
