Urgent Information

Nobel Laureates Symposium not to take place this week in Hong Kong

The Nobel Laureates Symposium on Global Sustainability will not take place this week in Hong Kong. The co-organizers – the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research and the Asia Society Hong Kong Center – took the difficult decision to cancel the event due to the sustained disruptions in the city. The co-organizers will intensely explore options to reschedule the Symposium “4C: Changing Cities, Changing Climate” for Hong Kong, which is an important laboratory of urbanization for all of Asia. All media will be informed of new dates as soon as possible.

The organizers shall be here to answer any questions or queries in terms of logistical and press related issues.
