This forum is important if you care about the air you breathe.

Hong Kong’s NEW Air Quality Objectives and control measures will be announced in this public forum.

The 'independent' consultant will explain the recommendations which have been 'approved' by the Government.

Rumours have it that you better hold your breath.

Strong opposition from Government and the power and transport industry have watered the objectives down to what we already have today.

That should make you angry enough to give up your Friday afternoon (business is slow anyway) and join this public forum to express your views.

Nothing less is acceptable

You can raise questions and demand action for a decent living environment:

1. World Health Organisation-based standards;
2. WHO interim target no. 2 as the absolute minimum acceptable;
3. A review every five years of the objectives and progress made;
4. A clear plan (with money and regulations) to meet the objectives.

What if you can't make it?

In case you can’t make the Forum and you want the Government to know that you are serious about the air you inhale, but that organizing a public consultation during work hours, with short notice and without information on the web makes it somewhat inconvenient, then send an email to
mkilburn@civic-exchange.org – he will collate the comments and ask Government to do better.
