Hong Kong Institute of Mediation, HKIM is dedicated to promoting mediation to different sectors of the society – resolving disputes and conflicts through negotiation, in order to cultivate a harmonious and cooperating community.
Our logo consists of two parts:
The three small circles stand for two parties in dispute and an independent third party – the mediator
The two parties work hand in hand to achieve agreement.
‘HKIM’ inside ‘Friends of Mediation’ carries two meanings. One, the effect of mediation can only be maximized in a community which advocates resolution of conflicts through negotiation. Two, HKIM is committed to facilitate networking of ‘Friends of Mediation’ in order to promote mediation in the society.
Different colours carry different messages:
Green – peaceful and calm as a personal quality of mediator
Purple – mixture of red and blue. Red gives a sense of hostility while blue gives perfect peace. After mediation, even the parties in dispute cannot turn from red to completely blue, the agreement can still fulfill the needs of each individual and thus turn to purple
HKIM hopes that with the widespread acceptance and usage of mediation as a tool for conflict resolution, our society can become more harmonious.
