    3‧22 World Water Day Action

    Prior to the United Nation “World Water Day” on 22 March, over 150 primary students together with Sammy and Chu Fun from Commercial Radio 2; Ms Christine Loh, Under Secretary for the Environment; and Dr. Chan Hon-fai, Chairman of the Advisory Committee on the Quality of Water Supplies, called on Hongkongers to join the “5-minute Shower Challenge” and so cut carbon emissions while using less water to combat global warming.

     
     

    "5-minute Shower Challenge" Outreach Promotion

    People go into district communities and advocate 5-minute showers. Ideally, everyone in the city takes the pledge for 5-minute shower in order to make an effort to save the earth by reducing water use and carbon emissions.
