Event Details

This event will be conducted via Zoom


Join us for an inspiring talk by Mr. Lam Chiu Ying - "Nature or Environment - can we manage?"


The subtle difference between "Nature" and "Environment" will be discussed, to illustrate the evolving relationship between Homo sapiens and the rest of Planet Earth. Agriculture, industrialisation and urbanisation are key efforts to MANAGE Nature (or Environment), that have enabled human population to grow. But our management effort has apparently induced unfathomable feedback from Planet Earth. A survival crisis is looming. Can we Homo sapiens manage?


The session will be followed by the EMAHK 2020 AGM.
