Hi Loki!

Great ideas about citizen awareness, so I guess the underlying mechanisms behind this would include laying the foundations of educational infrastructure and increasing public consultation. Public participation in policy-making is gaining prominence, especially with the rise of the trend of planning de-centralisation, and government transparency & publicity campaigns are essential for this to happen.

To avoid drawing the ire of stakeholders such as indigenous farmers - a problem that is very widespread in Hong Kong in which villagers see their possessions as sacred ancestral grounds - sustainable development must also be balanced with the preservation of cultural heritage; to what extent this must be pursued insofar as these criterion for green cities are met can be investigated.
