Will Hong Kong be one of the greatest cities to live, work and play in?

The experience of our urban environment is increasingly at odds with the fact that we are a global business centre with a unique topography: the harbour, mountains, natural shorelines, white sand beaches, country parks, reservoirs ...

How do we balance density and the quality of our public realm?
The public debate over infrastructure, public space, walled buildings, urban renewal, harbourfront, heritage, nature conservation, destruction of rural land, and air, noise and light pollution demonstrates a growing concern over our planning and development decisions.

Join us at City Speak on 17 October to discuss Livable Density.

City Speak is organised by
The Fringe Club and Designing Hong Kong.
