Carbon Neutral Action
To drive climate action on campus, the Office of Service Learning (OSL) and the Science Unit initiated the Carbon Neutral Action Programme. The programme aimed at promoting low carbon living, and this was achieved through various innovative educational activities designed to influence students to incorporate green living into their daily lives.
Thanks to the Sustainable Development Fund (SDF) from the Environment and Ecology Bureau, students were trained to become Low Carbon Ambassadors. The programme started with raising awareness and understanding through workshops, exploration tours and exhibitions. Students then reflected on their existing lifestyles and came up with ways to affect change in their own lives as well as those around them. This included organising promotional campaigns and community events (such as campus competitions and community bazaars) to promote low carbon living.
It is endeavoured that the programme contributes to HKSAR's actions in achieving carbon neutrality by 2025. Learnings from participants will be gathered to support the government on policy-making in climate education.
