Heart of society: volunteer service – beach cleaning, Hong Kong

About this event

Please note that this event will be held on 9 January 2022, 16:00 – 17:30 (HK time).

Environmental protection has been one of the most important considerations for the design, construction and maintenance of civil engineering works. In addition, we can join hands to protect Hong Kong’s coastline by making it a more sustainable place.

ICE HKA and ICE HKA G&S are delighted to organise this beach cleaning activity. Let us remove the plastic bags, bottles and other refuse discarded at the beach from the marine environment ending up in the sea, choking fish, birds and sea creatures.

We can also help restore the ocean’s ecosystem and prevent the waste from going back to our dining table. This action can help to raise the awareness of public about plastic waste and water pollution issues in Hong Kong.

Participants can choose to have a relaxing beach-side barbeque dinner together to enjoy the clean coastal environment after the beach cleaning activity. Details of barbeque dinner will be sent to successful applicants.
