SDG Forum Series (2022/23) Session 3:

‘Clean Bin Project’ Documentary Screening and Sharing Session

Despite the massive promotion of waste reduction in recent years, the food waste we generate every day still accounts for as much as 30% of urban waste in Hong Kong, becoming a longstanding environmental issue. In this post-screening sharing session, Prof. Daren LEUNG will share his cultural research on food waste, and analyse the multiple roles of abundance (‘yu’) in our society. From the experience with his students in Day Waste-Wise (DDWW), the audience will be invited to think about ways to promote environmental protection practices, food and agriculture education, knowledge sharing, and community collaboration. Also, CNEX will invite student ambassadors who took part in the “Green Doc Podcast” Project to share their experience and reflection on creating their own documentary podcast about environmental issues.

This talk is relevant to a number of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), in particular, SDG 2 (Zero Hunger), SDG 11 (Sustainable Cities and Communities), SDG 12 (Responsible Consumption and Production) and SDG 17 (Partnerships for the Goals).

Forum on Environmental Justice and Resilience

The impacts of climate change and environmental degradation, as heavily discussed at COP27, are not evenly distributed among all members of the human family. While Hong Kong is not immediately affected by such impacts, do we have a particular role in advocating for politics and advancing actions that prioritize the needs and perspectives of marginalized communities, such as in the Asia-Pacific region? This forum aims to bring insights together in addressing the concerns over global environmental justice in the context of Hong Kong and beyond.
