Symposium on “Room for a sustainable livelihood in a globalized urban context:
Common challenges and diverse responses in overseas cities and Hong Kong”

  • Challenge of the Housing Space:
    Attempts responding to rocketing land price and
    worsening living conditions of people

  • Challenge of the Economic Space:
    Attempts restoring value of community economy
    in monopolized market environment

  • Challenge of the Community Space:
    Attempts resembling people-space relationship
    in disintegrated neighbourhood setting

What are the emerging challenges facing by the grassroots in global cities?
What are the community-led attempts responding to the challenges;
and towards the goal of sustainable livelihood?

What are the experiences of community projects in other global cities to
advocate improvement of our quality of life and enabling resources and
opportunities for the grassroots/ community members?
