Climate competition:  Secretary for Education Eddie Ng (centre) launches the Inter-school Cross-curricular Project Competition on Climate Change.

Secretary for Education Eddie Ng launched the Inter-school Cross-curricular Project Competition on Climate Change 2016-17 today.


The event enhances the lifewide learning of primary and secondary students in coping with climate change.


Mr Ng said Hong Kong, like other international cities, needs to reduce carbon emissions and he encouraged youngsters to nurture a sense of responsibility towards nature and human beings to build a better world together.


The competition, the first of its kind using science, technology, engineering and mathematics projects, allows students to use spatial analysis and mapping tools to conduct research on climate change to come up with innovative ideas to tackle the issue.


The competition, divided into Primary Four to Six, Secondary One to Three, and Secondary Four to Six categories, invites students to come up with an invention or conduct project research.


Seminars will be held for participating teachers and students to enhance their understanding of climate change.
