Overview

World Health Organization announces on 14 May 2014, top 1 cause for disability and illness for youth aged between 15-19
is depression and top 3 causes for death for youth aged between 15-29 is suicide. In Hong Kong, youth suicide caused
huge media and public attention since last year as a series of over 60 youth suicide cases were reported today. Comparing
to the average annual youth suicidal rate, the figure is alarming as it is 4 times more incidents reported in any given year in
Hong Kong history.
While youth is often found with huge stress in curriculum overload, schools should provide a safe, enjoyable atmosphere for
learning to enhance well-being. To bring education with funful experience, Edutainment Festival is proposed to recognize
outstanding and innovative educators with fun experience to promote a healthy study environment and raise the awareness
of well-being.
