Rising environmental awareness, together with the proactive policies implemented by the government, has inspired the community to advocate for environmental protection. Non-governmental organizations (NGOs), experts from academia, and the green industry all play an important role in leading the development in environmental work. Their comments, suggestions and recommendations assist the government to formulate relevant, effective environmental policies.
In order to draw on collective wisdom and to encourage active public participation in pro-environment activities, CUHK Jockey Club Initiative Gaia organizes the “Environment and Climate Change Forum Series” with funding support of the Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust. Experts and practitioners from different fields and the public are involved to confer on the best ways to deal with environmental challenges and impacts of climate change.
 The upcoming forum, “Climate Change: A Global Challenge and Its Latest Situation”, is also a side event of the “6th International Conference on Atmosphere, Ocean and Climate Change” held between 19 and 21 August 2013. Open to public, the forum aims to reach out the wider community on the topic of climate change―the most daunting challenge facing the 21st century.
 At this forum, Mr SHUN Chi-ming will share views on climate change as a global challenge and its current situation. Dr Eddy Wai-choi LEE and Professor Emily Ying-yang CHAN will respond and comment. In addition, there will be a Question and Answer Session for participants to raise questions or comments.
Conducted in Cantonese. Free admission. To participate, please register at First-come, first-served.
