PRAISE-HK-EXP App Launching Ceremony

On 24 November 2021, we released the “PRAISE-HK-EXP App” – a new mobile app that helps users analyze their personal air pollution exposure budget, from outdoor, indoor, to different micro-environments including various modes of transportation, so that they can better manage their exposure to air pollution.




At the App Launching Ceremony, we are honoured to have invited Prof. Wei SHYY, President, HKUST, Mr. ZHANG Hui Feng, Regional Head, Corporate Sustainability, Asia Pacific, HSBC and Mr. WONG Kam-sing, GBS, JP, Secretary for the Environment, HKSAR, as our Officiating Guests with opening speeches to kick off the Ceremony.



The Ceremony was followed by a thoughtful discussion, moderated by Prof. Christine LOH, Chief Development Strategist, Division of Environment and Sustainability, HKUST, namely “Air Pollution Exposure & Health Forum”. Prof. Alexis LAU, Project coordinator & Principal investigator of PRAISE-HK; Director of the Institute for the Environment, HKUST, together with Mr. CHAN Wing Kai, Chairman, Hong Kong Asthma Society, Ms. YEUNG Sau Fung, Principal, Carmel Bunnan Tong Memorial Secondary School, Prof. Xiang-qian LAO, Associate Professor, the Jockey Club School of Public Health and Primary Care, CUHK and Dr. Kenneth LEUNG, Assistant Director (Air Policy), HKEPD, shared the sweet spot of how technological integrations are pushing actions forward, where the community can benefit from the development of air science and management.
