More than 480 events for "Hong Kong: Our Home" Campaign (with photos)

     More than 480 events and activities will be staged over the next eight months in support of the "Hong Kong: Our Home" Campaign launched today (April 23).

     The public participation campaign, launched by the Chief Secretary for Administration, Mrs Carrie Lam, includes a wide range of events under four themes: 'Vibrant Hong Kong', 'Hip Hong Kong', 'Caring Hong Kong' and 'Fresh Hong Kong'.

     'Vibrant Hong Kong' brings together major cultural, sports and recreational activities that promote vibrancy and diversity of Hong Kong.
     'Hip Hong Kong' will cater for activities for young people nurturing their vision, creativity, leadership and commitment.

     'Caring Hong Kong' events will foster mutual help among neighbours and encourage people to show care and concern for the under-privileged and the disadvantaged.

     'Fresh Hong Kong' will involve promotional activities on low-carbon and low-waste lifestyle, appreciation of the city's natural heritage and healthy lifestyle.

     While some activities will be taken forward by Government bureaux and departments, stakeholders in different sectors who have been organising or planning similar events may consider adjusting their plans so as to align their events with the Campaign's various themes. They are also welcome to organise new events under the Campaign.

     Groups and individuals who share common goals and are willing to contribute their time, energy, passion and talent to building the community spirit and fostering mutual care and concern are welcome to come on board as "Partner Organisations" and include their activities under the Campaign banner.

     So far, 170 partner organisations have signed up to support the Campaign.

     All of the events and activities will be uploaded onto e-calendar on the Campaign website

     Major events supporting the Campaign over the next two to three months include:
