The “Science in the Public Service” (SIPS) Campaign1 enters its 10th Anniversary this year. We will organise a Roving Exhibition on “Climate Change – Our Response” at ten venues over the territory during June – November. The objectives of the Roving Exhibition are to enhance public understanding of climate change and its impact, to raise public awareness of response and to promote response actions. The exhibition will demonstrate the work of government bureaux/departments and ways of response by other organisations, community associations and members of the public in combat of climate change in five main areas (energy and living, transportation, food and water resources, safety and health, environment and sustainable development), and under three pillars (mitigation, adaptation and resilience). Let’s all of us join hands to equip better and take prompt actions for combating climate change!
The venues of the Roving Exhibition include (for details of locations and times, please refer to the exhibition webpage):
(i) Hong Kong Central Library (3 – 7 June)
(ii) Hong Kong Times Square (20 – 25 June)
(iii) Ping Shan Tin Shui Wai Public Library (15 - 26 July)
