Hong Kong is often seen as a capitalist haven, with urban renewal and real estate speculation happening every day. The city devours all traces of personal or collective memory, and the ordinary people lacks living space. It is in this context that Urban Diary has interviewed the grassroots and the ordinary, documenting their experiments in community preservation and cultural inheritance. Readers are encouraged to imagine different proposals for a sustainable future. Urban Diary believes that action and participation are keys to a sustainable way of life.
