We Need Your Subscription to Continue Our Research
As Hong Kong’s civil society is under a ferocious storm and the public sphere shrinks, the quality of discussion of public affairs has deteriorated, so as the quality of policy-making.
Nonetheless, this is not shaking our belief in the importance of independent and critical policy research. Hong Kong society still needs the ability to identify and critique social issues based on the perspective of the public at large. This requires thorough and well-researched understandings outside the system without the influence of institutional/commercial fundings. This has been and and still is the belief that has carried us through the last 10 years as an independent research organization.
To sustain this mode of operation, we are introducing our new monthly subscription plan (see below), with a goal to gather 175 or more monthly subscribers in order for us to at least break even, so that we can focus on our research, and to continue carving out a space for that.
Nostalgic “Research” Tee
The font of the word “Research” is inspired by the scribbles found on town plans in the 1980s. Three choices of colours are available, representing the three arenas of our research- green, brown and blue for country parks, brownfields and sea respectively.
“Country Park boundaries” Tee
Our country parks are under increasing development threats, encroached by urban expansion. This brand new tee with the print of its boundaries remind Hong Kongers of our line of defence.
Our most popular souvenir is now reprinted. The Cantonese phrase printed on the tote bag 「香港地小人多」is a play of words that can be read as either “Crowded Hong Kong has a shortage of land” or “Hong Kong has many villains”. Villains meaning those who orchestrated the illusion of shortage of land supply in Hong Kong.
