APRU-SCL conferences provide opportunities for academics and experts from different regions, cultures and disciplines around the Pacific Rim to explore and collaborate on common sustainability challenges and to develop new understandings and responses that can foster transformative change within cities, and between cities and their surrounding landscapes.
2018 APRU-SCL Conference at The University of Hong Kong, was structured around 11 thematic working groups (WG).
Members of each working group worked collaboratively throughout the conference to craft a paper that establishes an action orientated agenda for future research, education and/or project initiative. WG papers will be compiled into a formal conference publication.
Local excursions and site visits around urban and rural Hong Kong were run during the conference to give attendees insight into some of the sustainability concepts as they relate to high-rise, high-density Hong Kong.
