Warden of Green Hall

Dr. Horace Mui, Department of Building Services Engineering

Welcome to Green Hall!

I am Horace Mui, an Associate Professor in the Department of Building Services Engineering. Having been in the research field of sustainable building development for years, I see the importance of incorporating green elements into our daily living. Global warming, extreme weather and pollutions are evidences of the detrimental effects of human activities. As an educator, I believe that hall education can help provide the opportunity for all hall residents to develop as fully as possible and learn their responsibilities to their communities and the world.

In Green Hall, you will be living with a family that respects and cares for the environment. Every year, recycling and energy saving campaigns are organized to raise environmental awareness among hall residents and PolyU students. By taking part in the green activities, which include ecotourism, urban farming and beach clean-ups, you will be able to appreciate the natural side of Hong Kong. Through social activities like dining with the Warden and cultural events like art fairs, you will also have chances to interact with your fellow hallmates, broaden your horizons and develop your global outlook.

Together with my own family of four, I hope to create a big family that provides not only shelter and physical security for its members, but also emotional and psychological security, particularly through the warmth, love, sharing and companionship that living together generates.

As Al Gore once said, “Each and every one of us can make changes in the way we live our lives and become part of the solution.” Just by making small lifestyle changes, we can all make the world a better place for our children and the generations to come. Now, join us in Green Hall and let us create a Green future together!
