TWGHs Chow Yin Sum Primary School

Is there any doubt that humankind activities are having a detrimental effect on the earth – our home, our only home? Climate change is one manifestation, through the wasteful consumption of everything from electricity, to paper, to food: invariably leads to the pollution of our land our oceans and air, elements we as a species need for survival – we must reverse course.

Education and behavioral change will play an enormous role in the solution. We seek to educate and empower our young people to take an active role both in school and at home, to make incremental lifestyle changes. A world where each individual will consciously consider his or her own lifestyle choices and consider ways of reducing waste.

The programme consists of visiting the school eight times over the course of several months. One large assembly is held at the beginning of the programme, and one at the end. The first assembly is followed by five workshops consisting of a more concentrated group of around sixty students. Workshops cover Water, Paper, Plastic, Energy and Food Waste. A field trip to an organic farm is also included before the final assembly.
