HKBU delivers low-carbon message to community
06 Mar 2013
A low-carbon event entitled Wong Tai Sin Community Launching Days for the Reduction of Carbon, Energy and Waste cum Hong Kong Baptist University Education Gallery was held on 1-2 March attended by more than 1,000 participants from the local community. The activity, which aimed at reducing carbon emission and waste in the community, was co-organised by the HKBU Task Force on Sustainable Campus and environmental group Mission Healthy Greens.
At the event, a group of low-carbon ambassadors formed by HKBU students shared with participants various ways to reduce residential waste and kitchen leftovers. The ambassadors also organised a free workshop to teach participants to make bracelets using material that had been discarded. At the workshop, participants learned how to make an economical, environmentally friendly and natural pest repellent and a household cleanser.
Ms. Christine Loh, Under Secretary for the Environment of the HKSAR Government; Mr. Andy Lee, Vice-President (Administration) and Secretary cum Chairman of the Environmental Health and Safety Committee of HKBU, were joined by other officiating guests at the ceremony.
