A group of students studying "Business Ethics and Social Responsibilities (BESR)" served as student ambassadors in promoting the Earth Hour Campaign organised by World Wide Fund for Nature Hong Kong (WWF-HK).
Participants set up a promotional booth at Shek Mun Campus to promote the Earth Hour Campaign. Positive feedback was received from both students and lecturers with over 130 people pledged to support the activity on that day. A Tram Parade was also launched to promote the event among the community members.
"Through participating in service learning, we have realized the importance of energy saving to the earth. We were also happy that quite a lot of Hong Kong citizens gave positive responses to us during the Tram Parade and promised to support the campaign."
-Luke Mai (Year 1, Marketing)
"As part of the BESR course, students need to participate in community service. We hope that they can understand the ethical theories through real life practice and at the same time contribute to the well-being of the whole community."
-Dr. Angel Lai, the lecturer of BESR
