Climathon 2017香港︰邁向零碳香港的挑戰

Climathon 2017香港︰邁向零碳香港的挑戰
合辦︰賽馬會低碳創聚、香港教育大學 大獎︰ $4,000 (奬金只可用於發展獲奬項目) 參加者在完成活動後將獲發由Climate-KIC所發出的證書。 Climathon (氣候馬拉松) 由歐洲氣候創新團體Climate-KIC發起,以應對氣候變化挑戰為主題,在全球多個主要城市同步舉行。全球各地的參加者,連續24小時為迎戰當地的氣候議題共同動腦筋,以群眾智慧尋找解決方案。 我們誠邀你一同為香港出謀獻策,設計創新方案,協助商界或社區解決我城面對的四大氣候議題: (1)熱島效應︰熱島效應是很多商業化城市都要面對的問題。香港人口稠密,市中心地區高樓大廈密佈,綠化不彰,加上長時間使用空調,令城市的氣溫上升,通風變差,空氣質素變壞,今年夏天便曾錄得破紀錄的38 高溫。熱島效應影響城市生活質素,威脅市民健康,有沒有方法可以透過空間的創新使用、建材選擇、綠化等措施改善我城的微氣候? (2)能源使用︰香港本土缺乏能源資源,依賴入口燃料。香港的發電主要來自燃煤,約佔57%;其次是天然氣,佔21%;餘下22%來自內地進口的核電,僅有小部分能源由可再生能源如太陽能和風能提供。除了等待兩電採取行動外,我們怎樣增加可再生能源的使用?    (3)廢物管理︰香港每年產生600萬公噸都市固體廢物,超過半數被棄置在三個堆填內。若廢物數量持續增加,現有的三個堆填區將於2010年代中至後期逐一滿溢。但都市固體廢物回收率只有35%,我們應如何從源頭、回收及升級再造等方面減少棄置廢物的數量? (4)極端天氣︰氣候變化帶來的極端天氣對香港造成鉅大挑戰。去年,天文台共錄得全年38日酷熱天氣,是有記錄以來最高。此外,香港亦出現異常的降雨模式,氣候災害如颱風會更頻密,強度亦會更高。面對反常天氣,脆弱社區如位處低窪的大澳將首當其衝。不同社區或團體可以怎樣提高抗逆能力? 歡迎你參加「Climathon 2017香港」,與全球公民同步行動,為氣候出一分力! 參加者須知︰ -參加者必須年滿十八歲。 -參加者可以個人或隊際形式 (3至8人) 參與活動及討論,在24小時內為香港的氣候挑戰尋找解決方案。 -參加者按個別興趣,加入上述氣候議題的分組討論,於活動第二天下午與大會分享建議方案,大會評審團亦會從中選出獲獎團隊。若參加者已有初步方案,也可於活動開始時向大會簡介。 -會場設有免費wi-fi。請參加者自攜手提電腦及其他所需器材,方便搜尋資料及進行匯報。
