Information Session: Urban Sustainability in Hong Kong

Walton Sustainability Solutions School of Sustainability

Learn about the summer 2016 Global Sustainability Studies program Urban Sustainability in Hong Kong

Cities are increasingly taking the initiative to address the big-picture sustainability challenges of renewable energy, transportation, water supply, biodiversity, waste management, GHG emissions, land use, food security and community resilience. This faculty-led summer course will use Hong Kong as the setting to provide students with lectures, field trips, direct interactions with Hong Kong’s leaders and an opportunity to actually develop and publicly present solutions-focused policies for one of the world’s most complex and densely-populated cities. You will work in small teams with Chinese students enrolled in City University of Hong Kong to learn how cities formulate and apply public policy to help solve their challenges of local sustainability.
