SDG #11 Sustainable Cities and Communities

Hong Kong has been ranked the least affordable housing market for the 10th year straight, as it takes the average family 20.8 years of savings to afford a home in the city (Demographia, 2020). As a result, many Hongkongers are forced to live in extremely small living spaces. For some, it can feel claustrophobic and suffocating, and open public spaces are needed to alleviate stress and breathe fresh air. Within this dense urban jungle, however, space is one of Hong Kong’s scarcest resources. For every resident there is only 2.7 square meters of open space compared to Singapore’s 7.4 and Seoul’s 6.1 square meters. The lack of open public spaces combined with small living spaces has a significant negative impact on both physical and mental health.

To enter this category, please respond to the following challenge statement:
How might we provide access to safe and inclusive green and public spaces?
