Educational Talks in SDG Action and Awareness Month Update

Last week, as part of the ongoing SDG Action and Awareness Month, we had the privilege of organizing two insightful educational talks that shed light on important global issues. These talks not only increased awareness but also sparked meaningful discussions among participants. Here's a summary of the talks:

1. Talk on Climate Change:
The Geography Department and CS Department collaborated to host a captivating talk on climate change. We were honored to have a speaker from Friends of the Earth, a renowned environmental organization. The talk highlighted the importance of sustainable practices, renewable energy, and collective efforts to combat climate change. Participants engaged in thought-provoking discussions on ways to reduce their ecological footprint and promote a greener future.

2. Message from New Guinea:
In collaboration with the Kadoorie Farm and Botanic Garden (KFBG), the CS Department organized a special talk featuring Jhon Kwano, an inspiring indigenous person from New Guinea. Jhon shared his firsthand experiences and perspectives on the environmental challenges faced by his community and the importance of preserving biodiversity. Participants were deeply moved by his personal stories and gained a deeper understanding of the interconnectedness between humans and nature.

Stay tuned for more exciting events and initiatives throughout the month!
