Almost half of Hong Kong people are unhappy with the existing heritage conservation policy, according to a poll by New Pulse, an NGO dedicated to making youngsters care more for society. The survey of 853 people, aged 15 to 40, found 40 per cent were dissatisfied with the government's policy on cultural preservation. The poll also found 51 per cent of youngsters believed policies failed to promote learning about city history. Sixty-two per cent of respondents considered the transparency of the Antiquities Advisory Board too low. On assessing conservation value, 38 per cent said a structure should be a symbol of its time, while 22 per cent said uniqueness mattered.
