Making greener impact
Being at the forefront of Hong Kong’s sustainable development, ReThink HK is proud to take action and embody one of the key themes of ReThink HK 2021: “People and Purpose”. All delegate fees of this year will be contributed to dedicated projects with the two incredible Hong Kong charity partners, The Green Earth and ImpactHK.
The Green Earth focuses on raising public awareness on plastic pollution issues in Hong Kong and persuade people to use plastic responsibly. Its initiative: “Rethink Plastic” Education Campaign, aims to show plastic’s different faces and its impacts to the environment.
ImpactHK addresses the vulnerable groups that are the least empowered to make changes to protect themselves and the planet. By providing training and holistic support to people who are living in unstable housing or homelessness, ImpactHK’s recent environmental protection project aims to bring necessary support to Hong Kong’s vulnerable communities.
ReThink HK is proud to support the causes of both charity partners — fighting climate change and the overuse of plastics, and supporting Hong Kong’s homeless and needy.
