An Online Seminar "Looking ahead beyond tree stumps -- tree species selection for resilient cities" was successfully held on 22 August 2020 with over 300 participants from the academic, public and private sectors. The webinar was a resounding success with lots of positive comments on every aspect of the event. Over 96% of respondents of the Webinar Feedback Survey considered they gained new knowledge applicable to their work/future careers from this webinar.
“Looking Ahead Beyond Tree Stumps -- Tree Species Selection For Resilient Cities” webinar was hosted by Bachelor of Science (Honours) Horticulture, Arboriculture and Landscape Management in collaboration with Greening, Landscape and Tree Management Section, Development Bureau and Hong Kong Institute of Horticultural Science. This webinar is second of the seminar series on “Finding Our Way Out For Our Urban Forest – The Lessons Learned From The Aftermath After Super Typhoon” fully funded by Research Grants Council. The seminar series aims to enhance public awareness of policy, planning and management strategies on urban greening by bringing together insights and experiences from local and overseas experts.
The guest speakers are prominent and well-known names in the Urban Greening industry in Guangzhou, China. The webinar was held in Mandarin and provided analysis and summary of best practices, lessons learned and conclusions from various research projects and real-life events in the Hong Kong-Macau Greater Bay Area (GBA). The GBA experiences are considered relevant and particular beneficial to our webinar audience given the fact that HK and the wider GBA cities have similar climates and are prone to experience frequent and severe typhoons.
