Centennial Forum - "Climate, Economics, Ethics & Sustainable Development"
Global warming is accelerating and threatens human survival. It has turned the concept of "sustainable development" into a joke. The origin of this state of affair may be traced back to the past few decades in which human beings have become addicted to concepts such as free market economy and consumerism. Individual interest has been magnified so much that the moral basis on which human society operates has been destroyed. It is high time for us to reflect on what we must do to ensure real human sustainability and development.
The Centennial College has invited Mr Lam Chiu Ying, Former Director of the Hong Kong Observatory, to give a talk in our Centennial Forum on “Climate, Economics, Ethics & Sustainable Development” on 18 January 2014. Mr Lam will share interrelations between climate, economics, ethics & sustainable development.
Anyone interested please register online at least 1 day before this seminar date.
Mr Lam served as Director of the Hong Kong Observatory from 2003 to 2009. He is now Chairman of the Environmental Campaign Committee, Chairman of the Hong Kong Countryside Foundation, Honorary President of the Hong Kong Bird Watching Society, and Adjunct Professor at the Geography and Resource Management Department of the Chinese University of Hong Kong.
After retirement, Mr Lam often gives talks on climate change, nature, and life. Mr Lam is an advocate of respect for Nature, simple non-materialistic living and happy life.
