Hong Kong Environmental Programmes and Events in 2022 Open for All Ages

As cliché as it may sound, we only have limited time on this planet. Although it might seem like life is all about meetings and reports, there are plenty of things out there that you should add to your bucket list– including environmental awareness.

Before we dive deeper into serious nature issues, environmental awareness or education is the first step to protecting nature and biodiversity, that’s why nature events are conducted to promote critical thinking and community engagement, leading to an eco-friendly lifestyle.

In this article, we’ve listed some environmental programmes and events in Hong Kong happening this 2022 that you should get involved in. Let’s get started.

First Steps Into Nature

Led by the Environment and Conservation Fund (ECF) and the Environmental Campaign Committee, First Steps into Nature is an environmental programme in Hong Kong for kindergarten teachers and students.

The activities include an eco-nature tour and biodiversity workshop designed to stimulate children's imagination through a fun and interactive game learning model. These activities allow them to appreciate the beauty of human life and nature in Hong Kong. Parents are welcome to join, too!

This 2022, the "Nature and Living" Teaching and Learning Resource Package is coming soon. Some of the exciting activities it offers are interactive nature storybooks, resource workshops, and biodiversity lessons, pictorials, and photo guides.

Hong Kong 2022 International Urban Forestry Conference 

Happening on March 2-4, this environmental event in Hong Kong is an online conference organised by the Construction Industry Council, Hong Kong Institute of Landscape Architects, Technological and Higher Education Institute of Hong Kong, and The University of Hong Kong.

This year’s theme is “Well-being: Our Urban Forest, Our Community,” hence the programme will tackle urban nature and its health relevance, biophilic city vision, re-greening urban riverscape, forest therapy, and more.

As part of this environmental programme in Hong Kong, technical sessions will be conducted including forest bathing, tree care tour, and student and trainee sessions.
