Do Well Do Good: The Sustainable Lantau !
【“Sustainable Lantau” Photo Exhibition and its kick-off ceremony】
To raise public awareness on Lantau Island, not only its environment, but also its culture and history, this year, JCI Lantau is organizing its 2022 flagship project, “ The Sustainable Lantau” Photo Exhibition. By gathering our dedications, we show the world the precious value and beauty of Lantau through photography.
The project would last for 5 months from May to September 2022. Apart from the photo exhibition, a wide range of activities will be provided to encourage the public to protect the environment as well as enhancing individual skills!
After weeks of preparations, the registration of the event was kicked-off with the opening ceremony held online on 30 May. In the opening ceremony, Chairman of Islands District Council, Randy YU, MH, JP, highlighted the economic development, environmental protection, and sustainable living of the Island should be balanced. The hiking trails, villages, and ecotourism of the Island are also worth to be treasured. KOL Melody Cheng also mentioned that photography is a common language for all people around the globe to share and learn about the beauty of Lantau Island.
Following are the introduction of the activities and details of photo submissions:
25 June【Guided tour to the InnoTCE of Tung Chung East Reclamation Project】
The guided tour will lead the public to the smart construction site to learn about the new construction technologies. Participants can experience the advanced technologies at first-hand and take a boat trip to take a closer look at the Tung Chung East Reclamation Project. This is the last chance for you to visit the site as no public visit is allowed afterwards. Only 20 quota is available on a first-come-first-serve basis.
July【Lantau Eco Night Tour】
To become better acquainted with Lantau and its rich biodiversity, an Eco-tour is the best practice. Led by Little Woods Nature Education, the Eco-tour will be an interesting but educative experience for participants to learn.
