Date: April 1 & 8, 2017
Organized by: Hong Kong America Center
The Development Bureau and Planning Department of the HKSAR Government have published the HK 2030+ consultation document laying out a comprehensive strategy for spatial, economic and eco-development of the city over the next 15 years and beyond. We are pleased that the HKSAR Government has begun a six-month consultation process for the public to register their views about the plan. We believe such public engagement is critical to fostering a democratic culture in Hong Kong, and wish to facilitate students from the universities in HK to participate meaningfully in this process.
We are recruiting undergraduate and post-graduate students from academic programs that relate in some way to the future evolution of our city. The program would progress over two Saturdays in April, April 1 & April 8. Students will be invited to opt into working groups that relate to their major concerns and areas of academic expertise. They will develop reports reflecting their collective thinking. These reports will be edited together and submitted to the Planning Department before the close of the consultation process on April 30, 2017.
