The collaboration between In Time Of and DBS Hong Kong is a realization of their commitments to promoting the concept of zero food waste. With cultivating a food resilient future as the focus of In Time Of’s Programmes this year, a series of activities have been kicked off.

About “In Time Of”
The “In Time Of” programme is a community initiative launched by the Nan Fung Group that engages society on multidisciplinary levels ranging from culture and arts to social design and sustainable development. Inspired by the global “Resilient Cities” concept that refers to cities with the resilience to absorb, recover from and prepare for future shocks in different areas of society including economic, environmental, social, infrastructural, and institutional. The programme aspires to empower the community to accumulate social capital in neighbourhoods, advocating sustainability, and reshaping a continuous relationship that bridges humanity and nature.
The Group will partner with a diversity of social stakeholders including non-profit organisations, social enterprises and community designers through the “In Time Of” programme to develop sustainable community programmes including exhibitions, seminars, workshops, and guided tours, realise social empowerment and improve the efficiency of resource utilisation in the hope of creating a more resilient future for local neighbourhoods.
