Revitalising Hong Kong’s Abandoned Villages – Mui Tsz Lam & Kop Tong
13th September 2023 (Wednesday)

What makes a good rural stewardship? The Forest Village Programme is an action research project initiated by the Centre for Civil Society and Governance at HKU, with the aim of bringing Mui Tsz Lam and Kop Tong back to life. Adopting the revitalisation cluster as the scaling up strategy, the HKU team expands its effort from the multi-faceted and inclusive revitalization model of Lai Chi Wo programme and has now also taken on the Mui Tsz Lam and Kop Tong project with funding from the Countryside Conservation Office.
