About the Jockey Club Civic Exchange “Reconnecting Open Space” Programme
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 Hong Kong. The initiative is funded by The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust and led by Civic Exchange, an independent public-policy think tank that aims to inform policy and engage stakeholders on addressing environmental and development challenges in Hong Kong. This one-year project includes an 18-district-wide public opinion survey, capacity-building programmes for tertiary and secondary students, a workshop, a public forum, and a research report on creating inclusive open space in the city.
