Asian Energy Studies Centre (AESC) and Geography Department organised “Hong Kong x Foshan x Seoul Online Sharing Workshop – Women and Low-carbon Energy Community” on 9 Mar 2021

19 Apr 2021

The “Hong Kong x Foshan x Seoul Online Sharing Workshop – Women and Low-carbon energy community” was successfully held on 9th Mar 2021. We were fortunate to invite 23 women’s representatives from three Asian cities (Hong Kong, Foshan and Seoul) to share views on low carbon engagement. HKBU student moderators guided the guests’ discussion on the following topics: (1) community needs for developing energy initiatives and solar generation, (2) obstacles to adopting energy-saving and renewable energy initiatives in communities, (3) and good practices of community-based energy collaboration.  

This workshop was a cross-city, cross-institutional initiative between the AESC and Department of Geography at Hong Kong Baptist University (HKBU), the School of Communication and Design at Sun Yat-sen University (SYSU), and the School of Humanities and Social Science at Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST). We are very pleased to have received funding support from HKBU’s Centre for Innovative Service-Learning (CISL). It helped provide unique learning opportunities for students in two energy courses: GEOG 4016 (Sustainable Energy and Technological Innovation in China) and GEOG 4065 (Energy Policy and Analysis).
