Happy Green Campaign Goes Online to Promote "Smart Power for Smart City"

20 Apr 2020

To keep up with trends prevalent in a smart city, HK Electric's Happy Green Campaign is leveraging more online media and social platforms this year to promote its message of "Smart Power for Smart City".

These promotional channels include the Campaign Facebook, a mini-movie and related on-line games, animations and an interactive drama, all aimed to encourage energy efficiency, use of renewable energy and low-carbon lifestyle. "Green Kid", the "spokesperson" for the Campaign, will take up different roles to share tips in the virtual world on how to maintain a low-carbon lifestyle, allowing students and the public to continue gaining green knowledge from home during the current COVID-19 pandemic.

To enhance flexibility in learning, the twin programmes of "Happy Green Schools" and "Happy Green Ambassadors" will launch online courses with interactive learning experiences. An interactive drama will also be produced by a professional theatre group for both online and offline delivery, together with a series of creative animations highlighting all the green messages.

And in collaboration with the Learning through Engineering, Art and Design (LEAD) programme of the Hong Kong Federation of Youth Groups, the "Happy Green STEAM DIY" workshops will be organised, where students will be able to design and create devices to achieve energy conservation through technology. Online delivery of these workshops will be made ready for learning at home in case the pandemic persists.

"The development of a smart city makes learning more flexible and innovative. Last year we brought out the concept of what a smart city is to students and the public, and this year we aim to deepen their understanding through more hands-on experiences and participation," said Ms. Mimi Yeung, General Manager (Public Affairs) of HK Electric.

"In view of changes in the learning formats under COVID-19, we will use more diversified teaching media and platforms to facilitate learning of energy efficiency, renewable energy, green lifestyle and smart city through STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics) education. We hope to make the learning processes more flexible, fun and creative to all," she added.

Apart from strengthening its online learning resources, the Happy Green Campaign will also introduce two new subsidies this year to support green and STEAM learning on campus. The "Happy Green Schools Fund" will provide up to HK$10,000 seed money to each of the shortlisted Happy Green schools for organising projects on low carbon and energy conservation.

The annual "Green Energy Dreams Come True" competition, which encourages secondary school students to realise their green energy dreams, will be suspended this year due to the pandemic. However, funding will be provided to past shortlisted teams to enable them to sustain or enhance their green projects. Successful applicants will receive up to HK$20,000 for each team. A "Green Energy Dreams Alumni Club" has also been set up for schools to share their experiences.

Results of the "Most Outstanding Happy Green Schools 2019 Awards" and the "Outstanding Happy Green Ambassadors 2019" have also been released. Tseung Kwan O Government Primary School won the "primary school category" for its fun-filled activities in green promotion, while HKSKH Bishop Hall Secondary School won the "secondary school category" for their comprehensive green education featuring STEAM elements.

Ten "Outstanding Happy Green Ambassadors 2019" were also selected for their brilliant performances in promoting green in schools and in the community. All these winners will be invited to join a Smart City Local Study Tour later this year and see for themselves the latest milestones of Hong Kong's journey towards a smart city.

And for this year's "Happy Green Ambassadors Training Day", HK Electric will join hands with the Faculty of Engineering, University of Hong Kong, to organise a workshop at the university campus to inspire more creativity in exploring how the smart use of power can contribute to building Hong Kong into a smart city.

The 2020/2021 "Happy Green Schools" and "Happy Green Ambassadors" Programmes will be open for applications in June 2020.
