On Wednesday's Backchat, cutting waste at events. The EPD and the Business Environment Council are targetting major community events such as the Standard Chartered Marathon, the Victoria Park Flower Market and the Wine and Dine Festival suggesting how to avoid the production of waste, effective ways to collect and handle recyclable items, and how to take care of leftovers by donating to food banks and people in need. They've learned from events like the Sevens which halved the amount of waste in recent years. What's the secret - incentives? Threats? Education? Where else can you see opportunities to clear up? Call us on 23388266 or email email@example.com. After 9.20, Oumuamua, a visitor from deep space.

On Friday's Backchat, will we have enough doctors? A report claims there will be a shortage of 4000 people in nine healthcare professions by 2030, with a shortfall of 1000 doctors and 1600 nurses. Is the report right? What about boosting our training opportunities or allowing doctors to stay on after retirement? Could we import professionals? Where would we find Cantonese speakers?
