Solve Climate by 2030: CUHK Webinar “Climate Resilience in Hong Kong”

With a steadfast commitment to promoting sustainability, the University is pleased to present a webinar Climate Resilience in Hong Kong on Wed, 14 April 2021, as part of the worldwide campaign Solve Climate by 2030, a Global Dialogue involving 100 webinars engaging influential speakers in 50 countries to address climate change.

2030 is the target year to achieve the 17 Sustainable Development Goals, an action plan for people, planet and prosperity. Without immediate actions to combat the climate crisis, we may have to face extreme weather, floods, droughts and sea-level rise by 2030, with dire consequences. 

The webinars will serve as learning materials (#MakeClimateAClass) for university and secondary schools around the world and facilitate the development of climate solutions through just transition (in energy and other sectors) and green recovery.

The CUHK webinar will explore what the government of Hong Kong, the private sector and the civil society can do to foster climate resilience in the city’s developments. Mr. Wong Kam-sing, Secretary for the Environment will speak on the city’s plan towards carbon neutrality, Dr. Jeanne Ng, Director, CLP Research Institute will speak on the building of climate resilience in the power sector, and Dr. William Yu, CEO, World Green Organisation will talk about how to get the community ready to build urban resilience in face of the climate crisis.

Departments/Units are kindly invited to disseminate the webinar to your faculty members, students, professional networks and contacts at secondary schools and encourage their participation (poster attached). Teachers are also encouraged to make use of the webinar as a learning resource and engage their students to find local solutions to climate change.
