About the Revitalisation Programme
The Lai Chi Wo Revitalization Programme is initiated and led by the Kadoorie Institute of The University of Hong Kong. It aims to revitalize the community network and enhance the sustainable development of Lai Chi Wo village, one of the enclave sites enclosed by the Plover Cove Country Park, by engaging indigenous villagers, volunteers, academics and green groups. It includes agricultural and habitat management activities, training and education programme on sustainability, research on sustainable agriculture and biodiversity and community engagement. Successful implementation of the Programme is expected to offer an alternative and sustainable village development and revitalisation approach in Hong Kong (and elsewhere in the southeast Asia including southern China).
