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”. The seminar will also discuss how urban planning, particularly community planning and design, can contribute to the development of convivial communities and healthy individuals.
