About CSHK

The idea to set up a Research Centre for Sustainable Hong Kong (CSHK) comes out of a realization resultant of a long process of engagement and research with various sectors in Hong Kong: we need to apply more collective efforts to systematically address the challenges of socio-economic-environmental sustainability for the betterment of Hong Kong and the Region.

CSHK, established in June 2017, is an Applied Strategic Development Centre of CityU. It houses the Sustainable Hong Kong Research Hub (SusHK Hub) and the CSHK International Hub for the Belt and Road and supports all the research and collaborative activities with stakeholders from different sectors and regions.
Professor Linda Chelan Li is appointed as Centre Director.

Director's Message

Welcome to the Research Centre for Sustainable Hong Kong (CSHK) at City University of Hong Kong.

This column has been left blank since the launch of the website in late 2017, as we are preoccupied with getting the research and related work done. ‘CSHK’s most important messages are best found in its various meetings, seminars, and publications’, such is my excuse to myself in a delayed message. As 2020 is drawing into a close, however, it is time to fill the gap. How can HK sustain its uniqueness and our talents continue to excel as we move towards the middle of the twentieth-first century, after the traumas of 2019-20? How can education and research serve its essential social function to enlighten wisdom and breed positive agency amongst our young as well as the seasoned? CSHK was founded back in 2017 to encourage synergy and collaboration between people of different training and cultures, to open up horizons of visions and nurture budding missions. The time is challenging, and sustainability requires all our perseverance and respect. We are determined to continue the exploration and inquiry, guided with science and a principled passion. Join and support us in our work. There is a start with things.
