Onepile foundation
OnePile Foundation - Charity
We believe that reading empowers individuals and communities, encouraging sustainable reading practices that emphasize sharing, reusing, and recycling books, thereby reducing waste and contributing to the community.

We will share more about:
- how we use online apps and smart robots to address SDG (Sustainable Development Goals) education
- break the inequality in reading caused by wealth disparity, and
- collaborate with multiple stakeholders to promote the SDGs and
- engage society (with multi-stakeholders, including government, landlord holders, corporates, technology companies, schools, community societies and youth/next generation) in the process.

Donny Siu - Education section/ University:
This practice plays a crucial role in:
- advancing SDG education and
- providing access, enhancing quality, fostering skills development,
- bridging the digital divide and book resources gaps, and
- facilitating collaboration among stakeholders.

KK WONG- onepile foundation/digital
District councilor – government/ civil society:
How can book-floating smart robots and apps contribute to cross-sectional applications at the community level and facilitate the establishment of a book exchange inclusive community through online platform

Tom Siu /Ethan Cheung Youth & next generation:
How can they better utilize the internet to benefit a greater number of children and schoolmates from different nationalities and socio-economic backgrounds in traditional book-floating activities that they have previously organized voluntarily
