North Asia CAPE is offering tertiary students across NZ the opportunity to participate in a digital online study tour exploring Urban Development in Hong Kong.

Fully funded, this tour will be held in late June, early July 2022 taking place on-line over a two-week period and will consider the following:

How does the city cope with planning and providing for its people? What are the challenges that the city faces in developing its infrastructure, housing and transport while seeking to preserve its culture, heritage and identity? How are these challenges being resolved?

This series of online presentations overviews the current situation and explores the approach by the Hong Kong Government to establish a path for urban renewal, new developments and associated infrastructure to meet the growing challenge.

The series will also look at how issues such as heritage conservation and providing for public recreation, arts and culture are addressed.

Sessions are interactive and will feature presentations from experts in Hong Kong.
