CSDI Awards 2023

To promote CSDI and to raise the public’s interest in spatial data, Geospatial Lab, established by the Development Bureau, is organizing the CSDI Awards 2023 – “Propel Our City with Spatial Data” (the “Awards”). The goal of these Awards is to encourage students and individuals from the public to make creative use of spatial data to address challenges faced by the city. The CSDI Awards 2023 Presentation Day and Award Ceremony were successfully held on 29 and 30 July. After rounds of evaluation and selection by the judges, the winners of the awards in the four categories were successfully announced.

This year’s theme for the Awards is “Environmental, Social and Governance” (“ESG”). Key issues in ESG — such as environmental protection, social inclusiveness, conservation, wellbeing and access to resources — bear spatial dimensions and therefore provide the opportunity for problem-solving with spatial data. The Awards encourages the creative use of spatial data from the CSDI portal to deal with the challenges related to ESG issues, making Hong Kong a livable, smart and innovative city.

The Awards have sparked a surge of creativity since the year started, with our briefing sessions, workshops, and mentorship programs aiding contestants throughout their "spatial" journey. The response has been enthusiastic and overwhelming. We've seen a record-breaking number of exceptional entries. In light of this, the number of finalist groups for Category 1 (Primary School Category, P4 to P6) and Category 2 (Junior Secondary Category, S1 to S3) has been increased from 8 to 10. For Category 3 (Senior Secondary Category, S4 to S6) and Category 4 (Open Category, individuals from the public and tertiary students), the number of finalist groups has been increased from 8 to 12.

We would like to express our profound appreciation to our guests, judges, and contestants for their participation in the Awards.

We look forward to continuing to engage with the public through our forthcoming activities. Please stay tuned for more updates!
