Fair School

ECF Fairness under the Sun


“ECF Fairness under the Sun” is an environmental education programme funded by the Environment and Conservation Fund of the HKSAR Government and organized by Fair Trade Hong Kong. The programme has been aimed to raise public awareness and support for renewable energy development and carbon reduction, and has been successfully completed in June 2020. Throughout the programme, 37 student ambassadors  guided community tours to solar power facilities and delivered educational workshops in secondary schools, uniting community support on low-carbon life .

Student Ambassadors


We offered two rounds of ambassador recruitment workshops and talks, with 37 tertiary student ambassadors attracted. There were 2 rounds of training, with the first one organized from Mar to May 2019 and the second one organized from Dec 2019 to Feb 2020. They received training in climate change, renewable energy and fair carbon offsetting, in which the training sessions are hosted by experts from renewable energy engineer, electricity company, green groups, academic institutions and corporations. Participants' attendance rate turned out to be more than 80%. After completion, students guided community tours to solar power facilities and delivered educational workshops in secondary schools.



Community Tours


From Jun 2019 to May 2020, participants visited different solar power facilities, including the latest floating photovoltaic systems launched by the HKSAR government, and looked at local solar power development closely. The event attracted more than 100 community members, and more than 90% said that the tours deepened their understanding on the government's development of renewable energy.



Secondary School Workshops


From Sep 2019 to May 2020, we organized various engaging activities about the implementation of solar power systems and the transaction of renewable energy certificates. Through these interesting events, students  gained a deeper understanding of the importance of different stakeholders and fairness in carbon reduction and understood more about climate change.
