With our perseverance and unswerving effort to protect the territory as well as the campuses shrewdly, we fully support the HKGD held on 5 June 2020 seamlessly of World Environment Day, an annual event established by the United Nations since 1972. HKGD is a month-long campaign which inspires us to "Go Green, Act Green!”, which covers a series of propaganda and educational events.
