In the past year, the catastrophic effects of climate change have zeroed into focus. This raises the question of not just how cities can lower emissions, but how communities should prepare for the challenges and uncertainties ahead.
Resilient and sustainable: Putting the green revolution at the forefront of our future
Early bird available until 18 April 2019
From HK$2200Book now
The death and devastation caused by both Typhoon Mangkhut in Asia and the California Wildfires in the USA have served as a wakeup call to policymakers across the world. The need to lower emissions and take a more aggressive shift towards sustainability has never been clearer. However, it is evident that whatever steps are taken, darker days are ahead which demand strong leadership and a resilient response.
Hong Kong has the opportunity to navigate the region through the challenges ahead, both as the example of a forward-thinking, sustainable city and as an enterprising, connected hub leading the green-finance movement.
This conference will frame the regional and global dilemma, examine sensible city planning for professionals and policymakers, and explore how Hong Kong can place itself at the heart of the green revolution. Participants will gain a better understanding of ESG (environmental, social and corporate governance), a fresh perspective on progressive investment trends — such as climate bonds — and inspiration to help forge the resilient city future generations demand and deserve.
