HSMC Symposium on Sustainability and Bamboo, 19-20 July 2015

Hang Seng Management College (HSMC) has been putting emphasis on sustainability education and sustainable buildings in the form of the College’s building design, selection of building materials, construction, operation, maintenance and so on. The application of bamboo, one of the fastest-growing plants in the world with high compressive and tensile strength, and the concept of green campus are some of the distinctive features of HSMC. To raise public awareness on this issue and to exchange good practices and experiences with professionals from the broader field of sustainability, HSMC co-organised with United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization – Asia Pacific Programme of Educational Innovation for Development (UNESCO-APEID) the HSMC Symposium on Sustainability and Bamboo on 19 – 20 July 2015. Around 300 participants joined the Symposium.
