永續坊

簡介

永續發展旨在建構可推動社群及經濟持續而蓬勃發展的社會能力和選項。永續社會以「社會經濟系統」 和 「生物生態系統」 的互補為基礎。永續坊致力透過瞭解及創造社會和生態之間的協同作用推廣永續發展。

項目

永續鄉郊-亞太區域合作計劃(AIRI) (進行中)

爲了延伸「荔枝窩永續鄉郊計劃」的知識和經驗,「永續鄉郊-亞太區域合作計劃(AIRI)」旨在透過建構亞太區域網絡,進一步提升亞太地區城鄉永續發展。此項目包括:

  • 城鄉永續發展行動研究亞太區域聯盟 :此網絡由亞太區不同學術研究機構和國際組織組成,成員將會共創知識和交流,籌劃跨地域活動,以及培訓城鄉永續發展人才。聯盟創始成員包括香港大學公民社會與治理研究中心、亞洲理工學院發展與可持續發展部門、清華大學公共管理學院、和國立政治大學社會實踐辦公室。
  • 亞太城鄉永續發展學人計劃:培訓計劃將會招募、聯繫、培訓和表彰對創新氣候解決方案和自然為本解決方案富有熱情的學人和變革者。學人將進行爲期一年的培訓計劃以獲得推動城鄉永續發展所需的知識及指導,進一步建立願景,並將新穎的想法轉化為社會效益。

以上項目將驅動達成亞太區城鄉永續發展的框架,並有助於實現2030年可持續發展目標,特別是目標17,促進可持續目標實現的夥伴關係。

此計劃旨在透過修復耕地、改善生境和適度再利用鄉郊資產,把梅子林和蛤塘復興成「森林村落」以森林作為主要生境的聚落。計劃會以協作和參與的方式與各界持份者(包括村民、非牟利機構、科學家、建築師、藝術家和有興趣的市民等)共同合作,讓他們透過一系列的保育活動培養知識、技能和責任感,成為森林村落的守護者。

這是香港首個保育高地森林的自然與文化景觀作為綜合全面的活態遺產的項目。

計劃旨在:

  1. 修復「村落生態系統」的土地利用,增強生物多樣性,並提升生態系統服務
  2. 保護高地森林物種並保護其棲息地
  3. 制定永續管理策略,促進農村有形和無形資產的活化再利用,支持村落的可持續發展
  4. 提升自然和文化保育持分者的社區守護意識,並促進他們在本地採取集體的行動實踐

此項目旨在透過建立大企業和中小企之間的伙伴關係,促進商界永續發展擔當領導角色並加強協作。這項伙伴協作計劃包括:(1)建立知識庫,促進大小企業之間及永續發展學者和業內人士之間的知識記錄、傳播交流;及(2)推出領袖培育計劃,讓大企業的永續發展領袖和中小企緊密合作,為商界培育一群永續發展領袖。這項伙伴協作計劃將可提升香港和大灣區的中小企在企業運作上實踐可持續方案的能力,從而創造共享價值。在永續發展範疇上,大企業透過扮演領導角色,積極鼓勵在供應鏈上有明確永續發展目標的中小企參與其,使其能更有效實現其永續發展願景和提升其價值鏈。這有助於推動商界更積極創永續社會。此項目香港上海滙豐銀行有限公司支持

這是一個全港性的公眾參與項目,透過持分者廣泛參與,幫助制定香港2050年的長遠減碳策略緩解措施,回應聯合國《巴黎協定》就應對氣候變化的挑戰。透過知識轉移和賦權的過程,是次公眾參與致力在會上發掘跨界別行動的可能性,包括在低碳經濟、交通、建築物能源效益和能源組合等方面進行碳。公眾參與的結果將為政策建議的一個重要部分。

承接著「永續荔枝窩」計劃的初步成果,永續坊開展了為期四年的「滙豐永續鄉郊計劃」,透過多個創新的 「社區經濟模式」推動在地的社區行動,重點推動鄉郊社區為香港整體社會帶來的好處。我們以共同協作的方法,建立切實可行並適用於鄰近村落及類似社區的永續發展模型。計劃的主要策略包括:

  • 培育有助活化鄉郊地區的社會經濟模式及初創企業

  • 設立永續社區學院,為社區提供面授課程和教育活動

  • 制定永續發展評估框架,量度項目對永續發展的成果和影響

此項目旨在善用機遇,為香港創造一個連貫、互通和富有活力的地下空間。我們設計了全面的公眾參與策略,了解社區對發展地下空間的期望和需要,並通過一系列的社區參與活動,收集公眾對概念計劃的意見,從而改善行人連接,提升生活環境,創造宜居空間。

這項規劃及工程研究旨在重新規劃將軍澳第137,並制定能滿足房屋及其他需求的發展計劃。研究將審視把可用土地作住宅、商業及其他發展用途的可行性,從而建立並發揮將軍澳第137區的發展潛力。研究計劃收集持份者和地區的意見,了解他們對規劃建議、初步發展大綱圖和建議發展大綱圖的期望和關注以及對發展概念的想法。

我們透過積極有序的公眾參與過程,為地區及有興趣的持分者提供重要平台和機會,讓他們就灣仔北及北角海濱城市設計的行人連接、街景優化、設計融合及其他連接上的議題等方面建立共識。這個過程是此項研究的重要部分,並為制定初步優化海濱建議提供重要的資訊。

改善粉錦公路研究(2013-2018)

我們在項目規劃的早期向有興趣及受影響的公眾和地區持分者收集意見,了解他們的關注。我們藉著一系列全面的公眾參與活動,讓主要持分者建立共識,以便發展可行的方案和改善措施,包括道路路線、交通舒緩措施和樹木保育計劃。

這是一項全港性的公眾參與活動,目的為提高公眾可持續消費意識,誘發公眾討論,並發掘鼓勵改變行為的方法。過程中,我們識別了可持續消費對供應商、政府和消費者等不同持分者的機遇與挑戰。公眾和持分者的意見已有系統地收錄於政策建議報告書,所有建議均被相關政府部門採納。

為對抗亞洲地區鄉郊文化、環境及社區在城市化進程中急速消失的衝擊,永續坊於2013年開展了「永續荔枝窩」計劃。此項目旨在為偏遠荒蕪的荔枝窩傳統農村景觀重新注入消失中的社會和自然資本並加以活化,從而為香港、大中華乃至其他地區的鄉郊活化建立永續發展模型。計劃獲香港上海滙豐銀行有限公司(滙豐)支持。

「永續荔枝窩」計劃已經圓滿完成,並於2017年10月進入了新階段,名為「滙豐永續鄉郊計劃」,進一步擴大其影響力。
