The Chief Executive of the HKSAR stated in his 1999 Policy Address that building Hong Kong into a world-class city and making it a clean, comfortable and pleasant place in which to live would require a fundamental change in mindset. Every citizen, every business and every government department and bureau needs to start working in partnership to achieve sustainable development. Sustainable development does not focus solely on environmental issues. More broadly, sustainable development policies encompass three general policy areas: economic, environmental and social. This course will aim to raise students' awareness of all three areas. Visits to ICC, Mai Po and Guangzhou are arranged.
