My Sustainability Goals for 2022:
Prioritise people, specifically in the areas of liveability, walkability, and social equity. I hope to see the inclusion of Universal Design standards to truly ensure HK is a great city for all – that enables our elderly to “age in place”, and future generations to participate in its continuous evolution.
