Lecture Information

Located at Hung Hom since 1957, PolyU has been witnessing the changes and development in this area over the past 60 years. The outdated urban planning model, rapid growth in population and economic activities in nearby districts have brought along many teething problems: heavy traffic, air and noise pollution, poor connectivity, lack of open space and many others. Not only the 30,000+ staff and students of PolyU consider the situation less than satisfactory, the nearby communities and the daily commuters are also looking forward to having improvement in their environment. PolyU, a university which cherishes a sustainable future, is committed to finding an innovative solution to revitalize the districts.

With “To learn and to apply, for the benefit of mankind” as its motto, PolyU is committed to blazing trails and bringing positive changes to society. In order to solve the problems faced by Hung Hom old district and to revitalize the nearby districts, PolyU initiated the Green Deck idea in 2012 and engaged a consultant in mid of 2013 to conduct a feasibility study. With the encouraging findings, the University has embarked on extensive community engagement exercise and a wide variety of related research.  As the Project Director of Green Deck, Alex is invited to give insights into the transformation from grey to green in the Lecture.
