The Symposium on Environmental Management in Pearl River Delta: Review, Challenges and Opportunities

September 3, 2010 in Event, Forum

Dear ENVM alumni and current students,

The Master of Science Programme in Environmental Management (ENVM) was launched at the University of Hong Kong (HKU) in 1989 when the Government published and enacted the White Paper “Pollution: A Time to Act” to intensify the fight against pollution problems in Hong Kong. It was the first inter-faculty, multi-disciplinary taught master programme in HKU to respond to the societal need for environmental professionals. With an integrated approach, this part-time MSc Programme aims to providing relevant and comprehensive training to students in key aspects of environmental management including environmental science, policy and laws, economics, green technology, ecological conservation and sustainable development. Since 1989, more than 600 students have graduated from our Programme; many of them are now working in environmental sector and contributing to the management of various local and regional environmental issues. To mark the 20th Anniversary and celebrate the success of our Programme, we are very pleased to organize the

Symposium on Environmental Management in Pearl River Delta: Review, Challenges and Opportunities
and
The 20th Anniversary Reunion Dinner

On October 30, 2010

You are cordially invited to participate in this anniversary event.

This event will also offer a unique opportunity for environmental practitioners to hold fruitful discussions and exchange ideas for better and more effective management strategies in the region.

After the symposium, we will have the 20th Anniversary Reunion Dinner which will be an excellent occasion for you to meet with old and new friends including teachers, alumni, current students of the Programme and other environmental practitioners from different sectors.
