Business Environment Council is pleased to be a supporting organisation of Urban Design Conference 2016 – “Betterment of the City” organised by The Hong Kong Institute of Urban Design.

About the Conference

Betterment of the City is a subject of concern to both the professional and wider community.  Many of the issues and problems are widely recognized but there has been little in terms of focused debate on what needs to be done.  Betterment as a whole requires a comprehensive and integrated agenda, and it is intended that this one-day conference will explore both problems and opportunities in a pro-active way.  This is intended to concentrate on and promote initiatives that can make a difference in terms of improving overall urban quality.  Speakers will be from Hong Kong, Europe, America, Australia and Singapore.
