GreenFest by Hysan 2020

to
GreenFest by Hysan returns for its second edition in Hong Kong. This is an event for youths and the young at heart alike to explore issues around waste, sustainability, and dive into action to achieve a more circular economy, and adopt a more socially and environmentally responsible lifestyle.

This year’s theme for GreenFest is “Close the Loop”, with the objective of exploring the concept, potential, challenges, opportunities and action plan towards a more circular economy for the future. 

A circular economy focuses on redesigning and reimagining our current systems to make the most of our precious resources and eliminate the very concept of waste. With climate change rapidly approaching, the need to reinvent societal norms and individual actions have now become vital to our survival on this planet. There has never been a more urgent call for humanity than now.

This two day immersive and hands-on experience will explore ways to rethink our systems such as food and agriculture, architecture and design, energy, technology, transportation, and fashion to be more circular and less wasteful.

Through a series of talks, panels and workshops, youths will dig into the issues surrounding our more wasteful and destructive industries while exploring solutions and innovations to transform our current systems into more sustainable and circular ones.
