Sustainability: Breath Of Hong Kong

About Breath of Hong Kong

Climate change is now affecting every country on every continent. It is disrupting national economies and affecting lives, costing people, communities and countries dearly today and even more tomorrow.

People are experiencing the significant impacts of climate change, which include changing weather patterns, rising sea level, and more extreme weather events. The greenhouse gas emissions from human activities are driving climate change and continue to rise.


 


‘Breath of Hong Kong’ Concept Design Competition is one of the major events of the ‘Breath of Hong Kong’ Campaign,
a project on Sustainability of JCI Hong Kong in 2018. With secondary school students as the key beneficiary group, we encourage them to analyse the needs of our community, think out of the box and deliver the sustainable solution that connect the community, industry and government to take action together. 


 

The ‘Breath of Hong Kong’ Campaign aims to raise public awareness of air pollution, to educate our future generation on related health issue; to create sustainable impact; and to promote the concept of environmental protection to young people. The kick-off event of this project “Breath of Hong Kong Conference”, was successfully launched on 29th April 2018 at InnoCentre with professionals shared their knowledges on air pollution and remedies with hundreds of secondary students.
