WEW2013 is here! and Hong Kong Cleanup present World Environment Week

Get your tickets now! Together with our friends at the Hong Kong Cleanup, we’re proud to announce a new and exciting series of eco-events taking place in June: World Environment Week!


From June 3rd through 8th, World Environment Week celebrates the launch of the 13th annual Hong Kong Cleanup challenge, as well as the UN’s World Environment Day and World Oceans Day (on June 5th and 8th respectively).

The week-long event series includes a rocking kickoff party, a glittering movie premiere, and a TED-style conference featuring inspiring speakers and performers from around Hong Kong and the world.

Sponsored by Nomura and Dopper, the event series will bring together international thought leaders, local heroes, NGOs, companies and the community to celebrate sustainability and highlight a powerful, positive approach to the environmental issues we face.

Since World Environment Day was established by the UN in 1972, it has been celebrating the inspirational power of individual actions that collectively become an exponential force for positive change. This year’s global theme is ‘Think.Eat.Save’. It is about sustainable consumption - ‘doing more and better with less,’ through reducing resource use, degradation and pollution while increasing the quality of life for all. This is aligned 100% with everything we stand for… redefining luxury!

Aside from having a rocking good time, the objective of World Environment Week 2013 is twofold:

  1. To raise awareness and engage the community of environmental issues, particularly the urgent issue of waste and the ways we can all help resolve it through rethinking, reducing, reusing and recycling; and,
  2. To celebrate World Environment Day, a day for people from all walks of life to come together to ensure a cleaner, greener and brighter outlook for themselves and future generations!
