Dear HKICON Members,
As announced at the AGM last March, the HKICON Conservation Award 2022 (adaptive reuse category) goes to Hakka Life Experience Village @ Lai Chi Wo. An award presentation ceremony cum experience sharing session will be held in November. Stay tuned – registration will open soon.
It has been five years since the Award was first launched in 2018. The HKICON Council has now embarked on a comprehensive review of all aspects of the Award, and invited a number of academic and practising members to join a task force to do this task. Initially, the task force recommends changing the Award to a biannual event, considering the number of conservation projects being undertaken by our profession in the recent years. The HKICON Council, after much deliberation, has accepted this recommendation. Other recommendations are underway, and we will seek your view before launching the Award next year.
