This session will adopt an "open forum format" to allow practitioners in the waste industry in Hong Kong to raise industry-based issues and to find feasible solutions. Representatives from the government, private sector and community projects are invited to discuss challenges they are each facing. Participants can volunteer an issue to be discussed and they can join small groups based on their interests. A few experts in environmental protection are invited to lead the discussion and interact with participants to co-design solutions.
Such discussions might form ideas that can be useful for future environmental policies. The open forum format also allows participants to freely share their opinions and they may turn ideas into potential business opportunities to create greater impact upon society.
