Environmental Education

We believe that community engagement is vital to sustaining sustainability development. Throughout these years, RCs developed plenty of programme and initiatives to mobilize RC residents, HSUHK community and the public to build a greener world.

RC Sustainability Leaders

RCs annually recruit passionate residents to serve as sustainability leaders for promoting sustainability and green living style in the RC community. With RCU supports, the leaders are able to organise self-initiated activities for enriching students’ residential life. 

Past events have included upcycling workshops, coastal cleaning, forest bathing, etc.
