Used Clothing Recycling Bin Design Competition

To encourage the public to actively participate in used clothes recycling, we cooperated with Towngas to organise "Used Clothing Recycling Bin Design Competition" in all primary and secondary schools in Hong Kong. The competition will last for one month, from Aug 24 to Sep 24. We sincerely invite all students to employ their creativity and environmental protection ideas by using colours, patterns, cartoons, environmental slogans, to design a more colorful and fresher used clothes recycling bin. We hope a new design can attract more people to contribute in used clothes recycling, so as to promote waste reduction in the community.

Jockey Club Smart City Tree Management Project

For the past six months, there were 16 fallen trees incidents which has caused 8 casualties, including an elderly who fell unconscious and remained in critical conditions. In light of this, "Jockey Club Smart City Tree Management Project" has prepared a "Fallen Tree Report" with an aim to remind district councilors, property management officers, private premises owners and interested community stakeholders to take bold actions on trees inspection before the rain comes. Furthermore, with an aim to raise public awareness on the importance of local trees and biodiversity, a PhotoBlog contest was launched on June 5th, the Environment Day. The feedbacks were overwhelming and we received almost 100 entries from our community stakeholders. Results had been announced in late July. For more future community engagement activities. please stay tuned to our Facebook announcement.
