*WEEE Like Recycle in HK Creative Short Film Contest (7 Jan - 22 Mar 2013)
*WEEE – Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment
The Hong Kong WEEE Recycling Association (HKWRA) and the Environmental Protection Department are jointly organising the WEEE Like Recycle in HK Creative Short Film Contest. We now appeal to all full-time secondary school students to participate in the contest.
The contest aims to further increase public awareness of environmental protection and encourage an attitude of living green. Starting from school, we would like to educate students on the importance of waste reduction and recycling and encourage them to take part in recycling activity. Through creating the short film, students will be able to show their creativity on spreading the idea of living green from school to the community and promote environmentally friendly ways of WEEE recycling (including computer, fluorescent lamp/tube, and rechargeable battery) to the public.
A new attitude to recycling
Making a short film with at least 1 element out of the 3 recycling programmes: computer, fluorescent lamp/tube, and rechargeable battery. The contest should promote the benefits and importance of WEEE recycling.
