Researchers envision a future city
A joint workshop on ‘Issues for Future Cities’, organised by the Institute of Future Cities (IOFC) of CUHK and the Department of Human Geography and Planning of Utrecht University (UU), was held at UU during 5-6 November 2015. It was the second workshop organised by the two universities, following the ‘Urban Design in the Era of Ubiquitous Information’ in July 2014.
A delegation affiliated with IOFC composing of Prof. Yee Leung, Director; Prof. Edward Ng, Associate Director; Prof. Chao Ren, Assistant Professor; and Prof. Sylvia He, Assistant Professor made presentations on issues including sustainable transport, electric mobility, urban informatics, green buildings, and urban climatic mapping under the themes of ‘Public Health and Environments’ and ‘Developing Social Active Urban Spaces’. During the workshop, UU researchers showcased their experience in using GPS tracking to understand the activity space and mobility level of individuals, which are useful research tools applicable for projects in Hong Kong.
The two units will explore new avenues for future collaborative research in well-being and public health of future cities.
