Other KFBG Sections
The Green Hub has reimagined the Old Tai Po Police Station, a Grade 1 listed historic building built in 1899, to demonstrate how we can live sustainably while at the same time respecting nature and respecting each other. Please visit the following website to know the latest transformative educational courses and engage with a network of community members who care about living lightly on our planet.
Ecological Advisory Programme
KFBG has a wide range of well-experienced ecological experts; in order to better organise the ecological advisory activities conducted by them, a section called the Ecological Advisory Group was established in late 1998. In 2000, this group was re-named as the Ecological Advisory Programme (EAP). Since then, the EAP team have actively participated in public scrutiny of development projects and environmental destruction activities in Hong Kong. This is an accepted and legitimate activity under the Government system.
In fact, of all KFBG’s programmes, perhaps the EAP has the most immediate influence on environmental practice in Hong Kong. The Programme communicates with a wide range of stakeholders, including Government bureaux/ departments, statutory organisations, non-governmental organisations, developers, engineers, town planners, environmental consultants, architects, farmers and individuals, on ecological issues, in order to ensure that developments have as little negative ecological impact as possible. The EAP also works to directly influence Government policy and proposals that affect Hong Kong’s ecology and biodiversity, through discussion, consultation and advice.
