Green Quest: Overseas and Local Sustainability Programme 2019-20
What is Green Quest (城林綠影)
The Undergraduate Halls believe GREEN is a living style in striving for balance and aiming for economic, social, and environmental sustainability. As complement to the green programmes at the Undergraduate Halls, Green Quest is an annual green programme organised by the Undergraduate Halls to enhance green awareness of HKBU students through local project internship and overseas experiential tour.
Green Quest includes three components: Local Project Internship, Overseas Tour and Post Trip Sharing.
- The Green Foundation (Local Project Internship) (January 2020 - April 2020)
A series of online and offline training will be provided by World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) on environmental issues. Students will brainstorm and work in teams on local engagement projects under the supervision of staff from WWF and the Undergraduate Halls.
- The Green Journey (Overseas Tour) (22 May 2020 - 4 June 2020)
As highlight to the Green Quest, students will visit Denmark and Sweden. Through visits to local firms, fieldworks and meetings with Scandinavian students and experts, students will have hands-on experience and develop new understandings to how green initiatives could be implemented into everyday life, from the infrastructure and system, city planning, government policy to culture and lifestyle. Students will take away how sustainable thinking could be combined with economic and social factors under local context.
- The Green Giving (October 2020)
After the Green Journey, students will share their experience and insights from the tour and pass the green message forward through student-initiated workshops/ activities.
