Time flies and Young Planners Group (YPG) is welcoming its 15th anniversary. As a group of devoted and passionate young planners, we aim to bring you a series of activities and events in three arrays in Year 2016.
We will continue to deliver professional and academic programmes which enable our young planners to enrich their knowledge and understanding of the planning profession. These include technical visits, topical seminars/ forums, career development sharing sessions, etc.
This year, we are excited to announce "Harbourfront Planning" will be our annual theme. A colourful array of events will be organised accordingly. With the planning studies on Central and Wanchai North waterfront, on-going explorations along the Kwun Tong and Kai Tak promenade, and the proposed establishment of Harbourfront Authority, harbourfront planning is one of the most popular topics in the planning field in these days. We hope our themed programmes can generate more discussions among young planners and also with other professional institutes and parties on the future planning of our precious waterfront.
As planners we commit to plan a city which can be a home for people and communities in different sectors. YPG is committed to make the city more friendly and caring, and to raise the awareness of the public towards urban planning. We will organise and participate in the Little Planners Workshops and other volunteering/ charity occasions which can contribute to the community.
Apart from working hard, playing hard is also important to let our young planners stay healthy and energetic. YPG will bring you a series of leisure events which you can socialise with other young planners and enjoy yourself. These include casual gatherings, outdoor excursions, sports/ leisure activities, etc.
Please join us in our upcoming events and stay tuned for more updates on our Facebook page - http://www.facebook.com/hkypg/. We look forward to seeing you soon!
