Youth Matters
Green Channel for a greener footprint
Green Channel
Did you notice that June and July were the hottest on record in Hong Kong? There is no denying it: the climate is changing. For the sake of the environment and the future HKFYG is going green. We are promoting low-carbon living.

Awareness about global warming is the first step. Upcoming programmes will get young people involved: reducing waste, cooking and eating low-carbon food, making films about preserving Hong Kong's natural environment.

This is just the beginning. HKFYG's new platform, Green Channel, is where it will all happen.
