Room 222, Hui Oi Chow Science Building, The University of Hong Kong.

Speakers:

Dr Ernest Lee Honorary Associate Professor, Department of Geography, HKU Director, Urban Renewal Authority, Hong Kong


Dr Lee studied in Queen’s College Hong Kong, the University of Hong Kong, Cranfield University UK, and received a PhD from the University of Hong Kong. He is a Registered Professional Planner, Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport, and Member of the Hong Kong Institution of Planners. As a director in the Urban Redevelopment Authority, he is currently responsible for the planning and implementation of the Kwun Tong Town Centre redevelopment project.

Abstract:

In Hong Kong, the use of community engagement (CE) models is gaining popularity as a means of helping secure public feedback to facilitate project implementation. The speaker will share his experience on how the concept of CE, or public participation as it was called, was developed and adopted in the recent years.


It will be shown that the ingredient of successful CE in project management is not the deployment of specialist tricks, or expensive technology, or strict compliance with regulations, but timeliness, due diligence, preparation, patience, people-mindedness, compassion, and a serving heart. It is the spirit behind the process that makes the public participation model crucial. To be sustainable, continued CE is as necessary as regular reviews and maintenance.
