With the generous support of the Environment and Conservation Fund (ECF) and the Environmental Campaign Committee, JGIHK has spearheaded the ECF Shoreline Cleanup KOL Programme, drawing inspiration from Greta Thunberg, the renowned young climate change activist from Sweden. This groundbreaking program has embraced the “train the trainer” approach, empowering children and teenagers who are dedicated to marine conservation to proactively engage in learning. Participants not only received comprehensive training in shoreline clean-ups but were also encouraged to leverage their own social media platforms to raise awareness about marine conservation. Moreover, they were actively involved in competitions, online sharing platforms, and public sessions aimed at inspiring public participation in marine conservation, waste reduction, and sustainable living practices.
The program encompassed the following key components:
Shoreline Cleanup KOL Workshops
Shoreline Cleanup KOL Competition
Shoreline Cleanup KOL Club
Shoreline Cleanup KOL Online Sharing Platform
By offering these diverse elements, the program sought to cultivate a deeper understanding of marine conservation among young individuals, foster their advocacy skills, and empower them to become influential voices in their communities. Through their active participation, these young leaders played a pivotal role in promoting environmental stewardship, waste reduction, and the adoption of greener lifestyles.
