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

How can education and research enlighten wisdom, breed creative agency and encourage openness rather than closures? CSHK as an inter-disciplinary and cross-sectoral research platform was founded in 2017 to encourage synergy and collaboration between people of different training and diverse cultures, to open up horizons of visions and to nurture budding missions contributing to sustainable development of Hong Kong and the region. During the past several years we have worked on themes ranging from the role of Hong Kong professional services in the Belt and Road Initiative, the strategic significance of the Guangdong-HK-Macao Greater Bay Area policy and development, the evolving agenda of the ESG and its reporting in HK, the ethical dimensions of artificial intelligence governance, sustainable socio-economic policies on housing and land, education and innovation, green buildings and green finance, creative platforms and space for innovations, to the significance and need for a diverse workforce and policies for sustainable talent development and productivity. The depth and breadth of the challenges have humbled our inquiries, as we are guided by science and a principled passion. We need your support, comments and suggestions – this is, above all, a collaborative endeavour (Please send us an email at sushkhub@cityu.edu.hk).
