Urban greening is a pressing issue today given the development pressure on urban land use. Urban trees are important asset of the environment but the issue of tree maintenance and safety have been a big issue today. Prof Jim, being one of the few esteemed Honorary members of the HKIP and “a proud affiliated member of the planner fraternity”, has devoted much of his time and passion academically and practically with trees and is a major driving force in drawing the public awareness about urban trees. This talk, the first organized by the Committee on Green Initiatives, would help planners who are often environmental conscious in green space planning know and understand more about issues of trees and green planning. The seminar will be open to all HKIP members and members of HKIA, HKIS and HKILA.
HKIP Continuing Professional Development equivalent hour: 1.5 hours
The seminar will be on first-come-first-served basis.
