The Council for Sustainable Development starts the public engagement exercise on the Long-term Decarbonisation Strategy, aiming to raise public awareness of the impact of carbon emissions and gauge community views on developing feasible carbon reduction strategies. It has released a Public Engagement Document to highlight three main topics for discussion, including transition towards a low-carbon society, reducing energy use and further decarbonising electricity generation, and low-carbon transport in a smart city. With views sought from the public, the Council plans to make recommendations to the Government by the end of this year. Regional forums, a youth forum, school activities, and briefing sessions will be held according in the coming three months to collect feedback from members of the public.
