Monthly Highlights

1. LOHAS Square

Founded by Tai Po Environmental Association (TPEA) and Kadoorie Farm and Botanic Garden (KFBG), and co-organized by The “Star” Ferry Company Limited, One Tonne Challenge calls on each Hong Kong citizen to pledge for cutting one tonne of annual carbon dioxide (CO2) emission in order to combat climate change. Seven uniform groups with membership of 200,000 people and several professional groups have committed their support to the Challenge. Every year, the greenhouse gas emission of each Hong Kong citizen is equivalent to 6.5 tonnes of CO2 on average! Cutting emission by one tonne is possible by making little changes in daily life.

Time: 11:00a.m. – 5:00p.m.
Venue: The Central Star Ferry Pier

With the local organic farmers market, energy-saving interactive games, hand-on exhibits and simple-living workshops, the carnival aims at spreading educational message on cutting down CO2 emission and help reducing energy consumption in our daily lives. Enjoy a nice Sunday at our Star Ferry Central Pier is your ideal holiday plan.
