Walk21HK pre-Conference Walkshop: Walk with Clean Air
Led by the Clean Air Network (CAN), this walk examines how the shape of our city skyline affects the air we breathe at ground level. It looks at the ways in which pollution and emissions are trapped in “street canyons,: the factors that cause this, and the options available to correct it. The walk follows a section of Des Voeux Road Central from Pedder Street to Western Market. Participants will be divided into four groups for activities.They are pedestrians, landlords, drivers and shop owners -- named after a stakeholder in the proposed pedestrianisation project. These identities will enable participants to engage with the environment and better understand the conflicts between these stakeholders. Besides walking and listening to the storytellers (the Walkshop guides), participants will be able to express their views on the concept in the form of mini games (quizzes, puzzles, etc.).
