The Jockey Club Civic Exchange “Reconnecting Open Space” Programme is a public engagement project that aims to evaluate and raise societal awareness on the quality of open space in the city. This one-year project covers an 18-district wide public opinion survey, capacity building programmes for tertiary and secondary students, a public forum and a research report.
“Managing Vibrant Streets” analyses street management in Hong Kong, including activities such as food hawking, commercial vending, busking, protest, deliveries and waste disposal. It calls for the Government to develop a cohesive policy in order to promote the vibrant street life which makes Hong Kong unique.
This booklet is composed of the appendices of Proposed Tram & Pedestrian Precinct in Des Voeux Road Central (Summary Report) which is a practical proposal which would significantly change the image of Central and address the poor air quality in Hong Kong’s Central Business District.
Civic Exchange, the Hong Kong Institute of Planners, City University of Hong Kong and the MVA consultancy published a practical proposal to revitalize the Central district by turning a segment of Des Voeux Road into a green space reserved for trams and pedestrians.
