The 7th Inter-school Competition of Project Learning on Hong Kong's History and Culture

Diversity in the District: Investigating the Historical Development of Hong Kong's Towns and Districts
Even since Hong Kong first opened its port to foreign trade, society has undergone constant changes in line with the political, economic, demographic and land use developments in the territory. Especially during the period when society was returning to normal after the Second World War, the economy developed at lightning speed and with it people's livelihoods. Satellite cities, new towns and new communities were built to keep pace with demand, and, as these flourished, living habits, customs, industry and social policies all evolved. Students entering this competition will choose a research topic based on the theme of urban development and then gather historical information on the district they intend to investigate. By organising and analysing the information they collect and subsequently presenting the old and new faces of their chosen district, its heritage and the changes it has undergone in a vivid style, the students will gain an insight into its evolution and experience the joy not only of learning about history, but also of sharing it with a wider audience.
