This event has been postponed due to the speaker's schedule. Sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused.

 

Despite our world-class public transport network, Hong Kong’s urban environment is often hostile to pedestrians. Improving Hong Kong’s walkability is now officially a government priority, but does the HKSAR government have the right tools to overcome the formidable physical and structural hurdles along the way to a truly walkable city?
