What is Hong Kong Public Affairs and Social Service Society(HKPASS)?
Hong Kong Public Affairs And Social Services Society (HKPASS) was first founded by LSE, and has since expanded across more than 20 universities in the UK.
HKPASS deliver vibrant and exciting events to our members throughout the year. While emphasis is placed on Public Affairs and Social Services, as evident in our name, we also host various social events which include dinners, cultural and charity trips – on top of talks given by distinguished speakers, and social service activities. We promote awareness for public affairs of Hong Kong, China and the world and also contribute back to the local and Hong Kong community through social service events and activities.
