Green Living Programmes

In alignment with the University’s goals for sustainability, we created a Living and Learning Community called “Green Living”. We are focusing our residential programmes around this theme to bring awareness to sustainability issues and equip residents to develop a greater sense of civic responsibility for the environment.

Check out the series of activities that we have organized to engage residents to think and live green:

Urban Farming Workshop:
- Learned about local farming in Hong Kong and how to care for plants
- Planted vegetables and herbs in our own halls to experience the farm-to-table process first-hand

- Harvested Roselle plants, pickled them and made tea from it

Green Living Idea Pitching Event:
- Formed teams to brainstorm and pitch an innovative green idea for the halls or campus
- Winning team will be implementing their idea in the halls

We want to see continuity of learning through various programmes and this is an example of the progression we hope to see as student experience and are educated about sustainability issues:
