雲耕一族首席執行官及創辦人

Andrew is an impact entrepreneur and urban farmer following his previous roles in both the public and private sector served in the Military Defence Forces and Asset Management respectively. Having grown up in both Hong Kong and Singapore which are highly urbanised and heavily reliant on imported food, and with his background in real-estate and civil engineering, he realised the potential of urban spaces in Hong Kong to make a difference in the relationship people had with their community and food, he embarked on the mission to make urban farming accessible for cities since 2012.

 

Andrew is committed and active in the social enterprise community, serving as mentors, speakers and advisor on impact innovation, design thinking and community space making. He also serves as guest lecturer to Universities and Education Institutes on investment to impacts, business innovation and sustainability. He also serves as industry partner for AgriFood tech initiatives and STEAM/STEM education. Andrew graduated from the National University of Singapore with a Bachelor of Civil Engineering degree and received an EMBA degree from the Chinese University of Hong Kong.

曾工作於新加坡國防軍及資產管理領域的徐伽,現以社會創業家及都市農夫爲業。徐伽在同樣高度都市化、依賴進口食物的香港與新加坡長大。地產與土木工程的教育背景使他意識到,香港的都市化空間擁有改變市民、社區和食物關係的潛力。有見及此,自從2012年,徐伽踏上實行都市耕作的道路。

 

徐伽致力投身並活躍於社會企業界,並分別以導師、演講者及顧問等身份探討社會企業、設計思維與社區空間建設。他亦任職大專客席講師,介紹投資影響、商業創新與可持續發展。同時,他是不同農業科技及科創教學初創企業的行業夥伴。徐伽持有新加坡國立大學土木工程學士學位、香港中文大學在職工商管理碩士學位。

About the Talk
講座內容

Food is Heaven to people. People, food and environment serve each other and all. Yet this once-harmonious relationship is destroyed by our irresponsible consumption-based economy to its knees. From apparently unrelated global events, Andrew seeks to lead us to rethink our relationship with the environment. Our continued survival and prosperity might remain a dream, or, maybe our actions to transform our consumption behaviour can change the environment for the better by food!

 

民以食為天。人 - 食物 - 環境 互相效力。但曾經和諧既關係已經被人類不負責任既消費經濟所破壞,萬劫不復。由幾樣看似不相關既全球事件,Andrew 會帶大家順藤摸瓜,探索根源。重思天。地。人共榮永續是否只能停滯於烏托邦,定係可以通過實際行動,展開消費革命,"食返靚“個地球!
