Green Festival, the annual highlight of Lingnan University’s Green Campus Programme, was held on 21-23 March.
With ecological conservation as the theme of this year, Hong Kong Bird Watching Society and The Conservancy Association were invited to set up panels providing information about wetland and ecology in the Long Valley. Booths by various green groups were also erected to encourage staff and students to lead a green life on campus and at home. The Produce Green Foundation taught visitors how to make recycled paper and scarecrows. The Sustainable Ecological Ethical Development Foundation (The Seed) conducted a DIY workshop to make organic herb soap. Lingnan University Green Club also sold small potted plants to bring a bit more green to the desks of students and staff.
Lingnan University Green Campus Programme was initiated in 2008/09 for a term of four years with sponsorship by Hang Seng Bank.
