Sustainable Campsite Design Hackathon
11th June 2022 (Saturday)

Centre for Civil Society and Governance is organizing a “Sustainable Campsite Design Hackathon” together with the Division of Landscape Architecture, HKU between May and June 2022. The Hackathon provides an opportunity for idea jamming, exchange of perspectives, and collaborations among individuals and parties from different sectors and backgrounds with the aim to design a sustainable campsite and wilderness experience using the concept of “Øscape” as a framework.

The first stage of the Hackathon has been completed and the prototypes of the campsite design have been created through the concerted effort of the participants.

Nature lovers, campers and professionals from different backgrounds are welcome to join the “Wild Factor Workshops” of the next stage to comment on the prototype designs, propose alternative ideas to tackle the problems faced by the campsite, and connect the professional knowledge, techniques and suggestions from various sectors to further improve the campsite design.
