Ever dreamed of sharing your thoughts with green celebrities at the dining table? Just sign up our latest event -- “Dining with a Green Star”!

To expand the open innovation community with a sustainability focus, the Jockey Club CarbonCare Open Innovation Lab (JC COIL) is going to hold a series of very special events from June to August -- “Dining with a Green Star”. By inviting celebrities who are passionate about sustainability to a wholesome vegetarian meal, JC COIL hopes that our members can share their views with our “Green Star” face to face, understand the support available at JC COIL and join us as a new force of sustainability action.

“ Dining with a Green Star”-- First Round

Our first honorable guest, Mr Lam Chiu Ying, is going to share his views on the subject of “development”--- what does development mean, and for whom?

In Hong Kong, we usually put an equal sign between “development” and “building with concrete” or turn our focus solely to “economic development” in the hope that “prosperity” automatically leads to “stability”.  But apart from the ever-rising GDP, what have we gained and what have we lost? What else is left in this city? What do we want our city to become?

Register for this event NOW, and you will get the chance of joining this first dining and sharing with our “Green Star”.
