For the last few decades, time did not only turn me from a student to a principal, but also changed Hong Kong to a more eco-friendly society. With the environmental policies introduced by Hong Kong government, it is not hard to tell that an increasing number of people are gradually making more efforts on environment protection, such as “reduce, reuse, and recycle”, and I believe that is more or less related to our proactive conservancy work we have done for the environment.


Ever since I joined the Conservancy Association, my understanding and knowledge about environmental protection work became more in-depth, I learnt from the earth language that we must not leave the damages to the next generations nor nature itself to heal, instead we must do it by ourselves, as to be convincing enough to affect the others, to maintain an ideal home land for our next generations together. Therefore I have been holding onto my faith, leading students in treating our planet nicely, also I personally have been participating in volunteer work continually for the sake of spreading green messages. We wholeheartedly wish that with everyone’s effort, Hong Kong will eventually become one of the best places for people to live, and by having a healthy ecological environment, this city will be a happy and home land for every living creature to stay.
