Session A | Faculty of Arts   
9:00am - 9:40am

主題: 香港人無屋住關歷史乜嘢事?
內容: 
常言香港「地少人多」,因此住屋問題嚴重。其實這是似是而非的說法。香港住屋只佔用了7%的土地,尚有大量土地仍未開發利用。香港近年面對房屋供應嚴重不足的困局,土地利用成為熱門的社會議題;政府和民間在開發新界、大嶼填海等方案的討論中各抒己見,莫衷一是。其實香港的土地利用和房屋政策有其歷史淵源,亦有階段性的變化;今日的困局基本上是香港「自作自受」的結果。 

 

本課程以持平的視角回顧過去,以理性的態度面對事情的來龍去脈,通過歷史的論述揭開「香港人冇屋住」的真相。
