TriAngle is organising the first "HKBU WZQ Makers" this summer in collaboration with Wu Zhi Qiao (Bridge To China) Charitable Foundation. All students in higher education are welcome to join and explore Mui Tsz Lam with us and senior friends. In Mui Tsz Lam, you will discover the beauty of nature and experience the charisma of Hakka culture. To understand more about local traditional culture, participants will interview villagers about the challenges they are facing. Participants will also team up with senior friends to brainstorm about promoting and revitalising local rural areas with innovative plans. All participants will receive a subsidy of HKD500, and can pitch for a Social Innovation Kick-start Fund of HKD 5,000 to implement the projects they pitch (see Conditions for Subsidies and Awards below).

In addition, two young scholars will also be invited to help evaluate the programme, and will receive an allowance of HKD 8,000 as Social Impact Researchers.

Join the "HKBU WZQ Makers" programme to explore Mui Tsz Lam's rural environment and revitalise the area together.


  • All students in higher education are welcome. Priority will be given to HKBU students. Since the event will be conducted in a rural area with limited transportation, participants should be in good physical condition for outdoor activities and walking.

  2. Young scholar: 2 HKBU students



Extended Deadline: 1 June 2023 (Thu) 12:00nn

Wu Zhi Qiao (Bridge To China) Charitable Foundation

Wu Zhi Qiao (Bridge To China) Charitable Foundation was formally established in Hong Kong in 2007. With the support of the Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development of the People's Republic of China, WZQ has connected thousands of youth volunteers from more than 20 tertiary institutions in the Mainland and Hong Kong. Over 50 footbridges, 6 village centres, and hundreds of modern earth houses have been built, and the livelihood of many villagers have been improved in remote rural areas in the Mainland.

Recently, WZQ has also launched countryside conservation projects to promote rural revitalisation. Through these projects, young people from both Hong Kong and the Mainland contribute to diverse rural development opportunities. At the same time, the joint collaboration between young people from Hong Kong and the Mainland promotes mutual communication and trust among them, building "heart bridges", nurturing cultural inheritance, and promoting urban-rural integration and low-carbon living for a sustainable future.

Introduction to Mui Tsz Lam

Located on a quiet hillside in the northeast of Sha Tau Kok peninsula, Mui Tsz Lam is near Lai Chi Wo and is one of the seven villages of Hing Chun Yeuk. Mui Tsz Lam village proudly boasts of 400 years of rich, Hakka cultural history. In old times, the seven neighboring villages of Hing Chun Yeuk would cooperate in farming, preparing and celebrating major festivals, and defending each other from pirate assaults. Even to this day, the villages of Hing Chun Yeuk maintain good relationships and mutually assist each other like their ancestors.
