What’s the first thing that comes to your mind when you think of “green”? At PolyU, green isn’t just a colour – it embodies the spirit of environmental protection. On the last Saturday morning in April, a group of green-spirited alumni gathered for a campus walk that featured sustainability facilities.
By engaging with the campus and its offerings, our participants were glad to learn about PolyU’s latest developments in energy saving and sustainability engagement initiatives. These include the trail of lightweight, flexible PV panels at the covered walkway outside Shaw Amenities Building and Shaw Sports Complex; the PolyU GreenCoin initiative; as well as the academic collaboration project between the Campus Facilities and Sustainability Office and the Department of Building Environment and Energy Engineering, which focuses on smart building energy management technologies for carbon neutral campus.
Actions speak louder than words, especially when it comes to ESG. The group made the most of their tour by visiting the urban farm on campus, and by making their own tie-dye organic products during our exclusive DIY workshop. All of them left with happy faces, proudly bringing their own “green” works home as souvenirs.
The green facilities, activities and greenery at PolyU can be a memorable experience for you too. We will organise the same Alumni Tourcation again in June. Register now to guarantee your spot!

Thanks AAO and CFSO for organising such an informative and interesting tour. It helped promote a green awareness. The workshop was super fun! It was also good to have included students’ sharing.
