The first 3D Visualisation Map covering Kowloon East was launched in December 2022.   The Kowloon Central 3D map released today comprises around 9,500 buildings and about 210 individual models of infrastructures, including flyovers, footbridges and subways. It can be downloaded through the Common Spatial Data Infrastructure portal.   Open3Dhk, an online platform transforming a variety of spatial data into user-friendly applications which can support diverse uses by the public, the academia and professionals was also launched today.   Through the interactive functions on the platform, users can view photorealistic 3D city models of Kowloon East and Kowloon Cent

Carbon neutrality drive launched

The Environmental Campaign Committee today launched the Carbon Neutrality Publicity Campaign, covering a series of large-scale publicity activities in the next two years to raise public awareness on the imminence of climate change.   The campaign is organised by the committee, and co-organised by the Environment & Ecology Bureau, the Environmental Protection Department and the Electrical & Mechanical Services Department.   The objective of the campaign is to encourage the public to act in line with the decarbonisation strategies proposed in Hong Kong's Climate Action Plan 2050 promulgated by the Government in 2021.   People are encouraged to start making changes in their daily habits in respect of clothing, food, living and travel to reduce carbon emissions and achieve carbon neutrality by 2050.   Secretary for Environment & Ecology Tse Chin-wan launched the campaign at City Gallery in Central.   In his speech, Mr Tse expounded on the decarbonisation strategies in the action plan, noting that the Government will continue to develop zero-carbon energy, try using new energy solutions, and strengthen regional co-operation to achieve net-zero power generation.   To achieve the goals of zero vehicular emissions and zero carbon emissions in the transport sector in the longer term before 2050, Mr Tse said the Government will continue promoting new energy transport including buses, light buses, taxis, goods vehicles and ferries.   On waste reduction, the Government will carry on expanding the community recycling network to promote waste reduction at source and clean recycling, and develop a new generation of waste-to-energy facilities to reduce reliance on landfills.   At the same time, it will prepare for the implementation of municipal solid waste charging.   After the launch ceremony, Mr Tse joined guests to visit the carbon neutrality information kiosk at City Gallery manned by student representatives of the committe's Student Environmental Protection Ambassador Scheme. The kiosk will be open to the public from August 5 until September 30.   Click here for campaign details.
