Roundtable: Sustainable Policy-making


The Roundtable discussion builds upon the three interdisciplinary forums and focuses on the process of policy-making on sustainable development in the context of a mega-city. There will be two panels of speakers. The first, the Policy Panel, features distinguished policy experts and will discuss the challenges to sustainable policies and policy-making with reference to the three interdisciplinary themes. The second, the Commenting Panel, consisting of international speakers and CityU academics, will reflect on the sustainable policy challenges from both academic and comparative perspectives.
