Following the overwhelming response in the UK, Japan, USA, France, Italy, Canada, Germany, "Think Global, Think Hong Kong" will revisit the city of Tokyo, Japan in 2018. This event will bring together business communities from Hong Kong and different economies to discuss developments and trends in the dynamic global market.

From sustainable urban design to vibrant street life, from inclusive community to smart mobility, 'liveability' takes many forms and touches almost every area of our lives. It has become more important than ever to bring diverse sectors and disciplines together to make our cities more liveable. Designing city liveability is work in progress, requiring the need to engage individuals, businesses, organisations and governments to co-shape a better and healthier future. Design thinking gives a human and user-centric lens to create values, activate public spaces, enrich life and build engaging communities, placing aspirations, wellbeing and needs of people at the core.
