Thinking about the NewGen
By Ir Prof Eddie LOCK
On 24 October 2019, representatives of the CA Division and CA Discipline, Ir C S Leung, Ir Louis Yiu, Ir Prof Louis Lock and Ir Dr Eddie H K Lock, met the senior management of CLP.
They spent the afternoon exploring opportunities for collaborative learning as well as future cooperation, focusing on the NewGen.
The NewGen actually contains two extremely important mindsets for this century, especially in the present status of Hong Kong. First, it implies a new generation of technology applications such as artificial intelligence, automation, big data, innovation, 5G and more. It is also creating a night and day difference globally in that every individual can now make the effort to generate new business models such as e-shopping, which of course creates huge opportunities by not requiring to pay high rents, thus allowing even tiny home-to-home transactions to be commercially viable.
What is more important, however, is to think from the mindset of the new generation. To be more exact, how can today’s young engineers help to create a better living atmosphere that they would not only love to see, but also feel great. This is one area in which everyone can give without taking.
You may say that engineers are straight forward enough to spend their lifetimes striving to improve the future lives of others. But did you know, for example, that during the World War II, CLP destroyed their own generation plants in order to stall military attacks?
To uplift our communications and create a better future, we are committed to giving our best to serve the community. And to be more explicit, we target the NewGen.
