Environmental Forum on The New Dimensions of Sustainable Built Environment

This event is co-organised by the Hong Kong Green Building Council (HKGBC) and The Open University of Hong Kong (OUHK).

In a highly dense and populated city such as Hong Kong, the role of Green Building is not only to reduce the impact on the environment but also more importantly, to transform the neighbourhood into a sustainable built environment.

Jointly organised by the HKGBC and OUHK, the 4th Environmental Forum will unveil the new dimensions of sustainable building planning and design in terms of Landscape, Waterscape and Soundscape from a holistic approach. Speakers from the industry will share insights on the design considerations and implementation strategies, the importance of healthiness and wellness brought about by these three elements, driving the green building advancement of the city.
