Hong Kong has a side that isn’t as famous as its neon signs, dim sum or iconic red taxis. Come and learn about how Hong Kong is leading the charge to become one of Asia’s most walkable cities and what this means to both you and the society in which you live.

Experience how “pedestrian-first” environments promote economic growth, social inclusion and health and wellbeing. Learn about emerging trends, build networks and have an impact on local policy agendas.

Around the world, cities are facing #environmentalhazards like extreme #heat, #landslides, #pollution, and #flooding. To enhance #resilience to #climatechange impacts, cities must monitor and address these hazards. Earth observations can help cities understand and enhance urban resilience and make better decisions for planning, urban #greening, monitoring, and more.

This 3-part, introductory webinar series will provide an overview of the Earth Observations Toolkit for Sustainable Cities and Human Settlements, an online knowledge resource that shares ready-to-use Earth observation data sets and tools. These resources can be applied in policy areas that are important to resilient and sustainable cities.
