About the Seminar

What if we set up a laboratory for the complex social challenges we face in our community? A lab that is at the heart of the community, a safe space where citizens and civil servants discuss, explore and prototype with creativity.

In 2016 we established the Jockey Club Make a Difference (MaD) Social Lab, Hong Kong’s first community-initiated public services innovation lab. Since then we had run labs on library services, park services and walkable streets with respective government departments, to innovate public services and policies through design thinking, community participation and alternative scenario experiments. This seminar walks us through the experiences, challenges and outcomes of running social labs in Hong Kong.

About MaD

Founded in 2009, Make a Difference Institute (www.MaD.asia) is a regional think-and-do collaborative platform where young people in Asia explore creativity for good, meet cross-disciplinary changemakers and synergize across sectors for innovative solutions to social challenges. Our long term goal is building a creative civil society, through a diverse portfolio of participatory programmes, urban pioneering projects, creative ventures and regional exchanges.

About the Speaker

Rachel Yan co-founded the JC MaD Social Lab, and has been a lead social lab facilitator and lab designer. An enthusiastic tri-sector athlete, Rachel has a diverse career trajectory in the business, cultural and social sectors, all centering on project design, stakeholder engagement and research. She is keen to bring in a community- and user-driven perspective to the professional world.

Education and Training Committee
Technical Seminar and Visit
 Visit to ICAC Exhibition Hall and Integrity Building Seminar

Planners play an important role in the success of the construction sector in Hong Kong.  In recent years, the integrity standard of the development sector is facing tougher scrutiny, from media as well as the general public, than ever.  Planners nowadays are expected to not only possess professional knowledge and practise high integrity, but also have a good understanding of anti-corruption laws, regulations and practices.  

 

The HKIP Education and Training Committee is collaborating with the ICAC to organize this event to update and broaden members’ understanding of the current work of ICAC.  This seminar will illustrate, through relevant corruption cases, the anti-corruption legislation in Hong Kong, the probity requirements of the government’s consultancy agreements and points to note in managing relationship with public servants, and the risks inherent in the handling of confidential information of high commercial value during a planning study.   Corresponding preventive measures will also be introduced to help participants prevent or mitigate the risks identified.   Another highlight of the event is a guided visit to the ICAC exhibition hall which showcases milestone corruption cases and ICAC’s anti-corruption strategies to meet the evolving needs of the Hong Kong society.

 

Key topics to be covered:

       

1.      Probity clauses in government’s consultancy agreements

2.      Receipt of gifts and entertainment

3.      Soliciting advantages for others

4.      Managing relationship with public servants

5.      Corrupt dealings outside Hong Kong

6.      Misuse of information obtained from planning studies

Event Details:

 

Date: 23 March 2019 (Saturday)

Joint HKIP-HKILA Symposium: Lessons from Mangkhut - Climate Resilient Urban Design and Landscape Planning

Joint HKIP-HKILA Symposium: Lessons from Mangkhut
Climate Resilient Urban Design and Landscape Planning

 

In early September last year, Hong Kong witnessed the impacts of the typhoon Mangkhut that could bring to our city, the urban environment and the community. Under the trend of climate change, it is foreseeable that more typhoons with such magnitude would be formed in the coming decades. Readiness should thus be built among the professions to develop a resilient approach towards the issue, and planners and landscape architects would be taking an indispensable role in bringing resilient changes to our urban landscape.

 

The HKIP, the Hong Kong Institute of Landscape Architects and Planning Department of the HKSARG are going to co-organize a symposium to review the implications and lessons from typhoon Mangkhut and the possible responses from planners and landscape architects.

Technical Visit - Upper & Lower Ngau Tau Kok Estates of the Hong Kong Housing Authority / Housing Department (8 Dec 2018 )

The Hong Kong Institute of Planners
Education and Training Committee

Technical Visit

 Upper & Lower Ngau Tau Kok Estates of the Hong Kong Housing Authority / Housing Department

 The history of public housing in Hong Kong can date back to several decades.  With currently over 2 million people or about 30% of Hong Kong’s population lived in Public Rental Housing (PRH) flats, there is always someone around us, who is or has been a PRH resident and has vivid recollections of life at the estates.  Life at the PRH estates has already become part of our collective memory.  As such, Housing Authority / Housing Department (HA/HD) have taken great effort to preserve the relics & historic elements from the old PRH estates during redevelopment.

The Education and Training Committee is honored to collaborate with the HD of the HK government to organize a guided tour to the Upper & Lower Ngau Tau Kok Estates (牛頭角上/下).  Redevelopment of these estates not only provided us new / additional PRH flats but also regenerated the neighborhood.  Part of the redevelopment site of Lower Ngau Tau Kok Estate has been used to provide the Ngau Tau Kok Park and future East Kowloon Cultural Centre.  New quality buildings and open spaces have also been constructed through the redevelopment.  The redevelopment of Upper Ngau Tau Kok Estates Phase 2 & 3 is one of the Merit Award winners of Green Building Award 2010 (New Buildings Category: Residential Projects).  To preserve the historic elements and collective memory of these former estates, well-designed open spaces / cultural path / exhibition areas have been created at the new estates to house hundreds of relics from the past. 

The visit will provide HKIP members a better understanding of PRH redevelopment in Hong Kong and HA/HD’s effort in heritage preservation.  The visit could also facilitate knowledge sharing and experience exchange on green building design / heritage preservation / redevelopment & related public engagement among HKIP members and the professionals from HD.  Please join us to learn more on Hong Kong’s public housing development!

About the Upper & Lower Ngau Kok Estates (牛頭角上/下)

Upper Ngau Tau Kok Estate was a low cost housing estate, while Lower Ngau Tau Kok Estate was a resettlement estate in the urban area.  Redevelopment of both estates are two of the HA/HD's comprehensive redevelopment projects.  The redevelopment of Upper & Lower Ngau Tau Kok Estates has regenerated a harmonious community for many families at Kwun Tong District.

Upper Ngau Tau Kok estate is a redeveloped PRH estate comprising about 6,700 PRH units, which house a population of around 16,000.  By redeveloping such, HA/HD built new homes for the people who had been residing in the Lower Ngau Tau Kok Estate for over 40 years.  HA/HD engaged the community in the design process to enhance social cohesion.  Upper Ngau Tau Kok Phase 2 & 3 redevelopment is one of the first PRH projects to make use of micro-climate studies to enhance the wind environment, natural ventilation, daylight, and mitigate solar heat gain, etc., in order to achieve a livable and sustainable environment.  Relics and old trees were also preserved and incorporated into the new estate.

The redeveloped Lower Ngau Tau Kok Estate provided about 4,800 PRH flats.  Part of the redevelopment site is also used to provide the Ngau Tau Kok Park and future East Kowloon Cultural Centre (currently under construction for completion in 2020).  To preserve the historic elements of the former estate, there are exhibition areas and cultural path at the new estate to house about hundreds of relics from the past for display.

Technical Tour to Camlux Hotel, Kowloon Bay (2 Dec 2018, Sunday)

The Education and Training Committee is collaborating with the Hide and Seek Tour (程尋香港) to organize a guided tour to the Camlux Hotel (君立酒店) in Kowloon Bay.  Hide and Seek Tour is a team which leads public tours in the city to promote the history, culture and conservation of Hong Kong, and the Camlux Hotel tour is one of its signature tours.  

There were numerous factories and warehouses in the Kowloon Bay area, including “Wei Yit Vacuum Flask Manufactory” (唯一冷熱水壺廠) which manufactured the renowned Hong Kong brand “Camel” (駱駝牌) vacuum flasks.  Today, Kowloon Bay has transformed from an industrial area to an important business district in Kowloon East.  And the former Camel factory building is now converted into Camlux Hotel, the first hotel in Kowloon Bay.  Camlux Hotel was opened in 2017 and has incorporated the past life of Camel in its interior design, hotel furniture, lighting, etc.


With the guided tour led by Hide and Seek Tour, we hope members will find insights in this revitalisation project in terms of its adaptive reuse and heritage conservation.  An afternoon tea session will be included in this technical tour.  Details of the event are as follows:

Date: 2 December 2018 (Sunday)

Time: 1:45 – 4:30 p.m.

Assembly point: Kowloon Bay MTR Station Exit B

Route of visit: Telford Garden podium garden > Lam Hing Street > Wang Kee Street > Camlux Hotel

YPG “Co-housing for the Youth” Workshop

Although the concept of co-housing in Hong Kong remains in its early stage, the city has seen a few co-housing projects. Could co-housing be the future and an alternative to address housing issue for Hong Kong’s youth? The Young Planners Group (YPG) is conducting a research project called "Co-housing for the Youth” which attempts to study models of cohousing in Hong Kong for the youths, and in what ways cohousing could bring benefits to the youth. To substantiate our research analysis, we have conducted questionnaire surveys and interviews in the past few months to gauge views from the young population and key stakeholders on cohousing.

On October 6, the YPG and Urban Research Group, Department of Public Policy, City University of Hong Kong are co-organising a topical workshop on “Co-housing for Youth”.  The workshop will introduce the initial findings from the YPG on the topic followed by a discussion for members to exchange views and discuss issues related to co-housing for youth with the youth and general public in order to formulate a suitable co-housing model for youth.
 

You are cordially invited to join this workshop and share your thoughts with other participants.  The dialogue will take a multi-disciplinary approach to encourage ideas from various perspectives.

Detail of the workshop is as follows:

Date: 6 Oct 2018 (Sat)

Time: 14:00 - 17:00

Venue: Room G5216, Yeung Kin Man Academic Building, City University of Hong Kong

Seminar: Community Planning and People's Multifaceted Well-being (July 31, 2018 (Tuesday)

Living in an urban community, the compactness of a city has contributed to efficient commuting and living style. However, the configuration of urban built environment has also been seen as the major cause of numerous urban problems, such as environmental injustice and socio-economic inequalities. Addressing the profound impacts of built environment on people’s physical, mental and socio-economic well-being, how can community planning help promoting the “well-being” of urban dwellers?

On July 31, 2018 (Tuesday), the Young Planners Group (YPG) is delighted to have Prof. NG Mee Kam, the Vice-Chairperson of the Department of Geography and Resource Management at the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK), to deliver a seminar on Community Planning and People’s Multifaceted Well-being, exploring the multifaceted meaning of “well-being”.

About the Speaker:

Prof. NG Mee Kam is the Vice-Chairperson of the Department of Geography and Resource Management, the Director of the Urban Studies Program, the Associate Director of the Institute of Future Cities and the Hong Kong Institute of Asian Pacific Studies at CUHK.

Talk & Site Visit to Asia Society Hong Kong Center

Asia Society Hong Kong Center (ASHK) is one of the few remaining colonial  remnants of the Victoria Cantonment.  The site was originally built by the British Army in the mid-19th century for explosives and ammunition production and storage. Among the four buildings, three of them are grade one historic buildings.
