This report explores the role of education in boosting Creativity and Innovation in Hong Kong for the city to retain edge against regional and global competition. References are made to national successes of Spain, Finland, and South Korea through economic and educational perspectives to highlight shortcomings of the current education system in Hong Kong and to identify areas with greatest potential for improvement. Produced in collaboration with the Hong Kong Design Centre, the paper contains an extensive research into the global creative and innovation scene to pinpoint Hong Kong's positioning, as well as a transcript of a forum of the same title participated by stakeholders representing various sectors of the community.
