    Green Cook Cooking Competition

    Environmental protection starts from daily life, and reducing food waste is indispensable! By selecting organic food ingredients and cherishing food, people can eat healthily, and make the best use of it. Green Council is going to co-organise the Green Cook Competition with The Parents' Association of Pre-School Handicapped Children to promote environmental protection and low carbon eating habit.


    Green Icon Design Competition

    The environmental problems derived from global warming are becoming more and more obvious. Promoting sustainable development is a major social trend. The Green Icon Design Competition aims to encourage a group of environmentally conscious designers to design a set of six Hong Kong Green Day logos with their rich imagination and creativity. The logo will be used to promote the Hong Kong Green Day.
