E&M Carnival Promotes a Safe and Smart City
The EMSD is committed to developing and promoting Hong Kong as an environmental friendly, safe, and smart city. Jointly organised by EMSD and the Hong Kong Institution of Engineers and with support of the trade, the E&M Carnival 2018 was held at the EMSD Headquarters on 20 and 21 January 2018, which attracted nearly 12 000 visitors. This large-scale educational programme not only enhanced public understanding of the work of our Regulatory Services and Trading Services, as well as the contributions of the E&M trade to Hong Kong, but also effectively disseminated the message of E&M safety, energy efficiency, environmental protection and application of technologies, playing an active role in promoting Hong Kong as a smart city.
Officiating at the opening ceremony, Permanent Secretary for the Environment, Mr. Donald Tong, said that Hong Kong has always been at the forefront of E&M safety performance across the globe. Over the past decade, the energy intensity in Hong Kong has been reduced by more than 26%, which is the fruit of joint efforts of the Government, the trade and the public. The E&M Carnival has successfully aroused public concern over environmental protection and E&M safety, which is of great help in passing on this belief.
In addition to game booths, exhibitions and stage performances, the Carnival also featured E&M Trade Historical Collections to review the contributions made by EMSD and the trade to the development of E&M services in Hong Kong over the past few decades.
Grand Opening of EMSD Gallery
The first day of the Carnival also saw the official opening of the EMSD Gallery at the EMSD Headquarters. The Gallery features a variety of themed exhibition areas, utilising interesting interactive exhibits and games to take visitors on an E&M journey, exploring the history of and relationship between EMSD and the urban development, as well as understanding EMSD’s services provided for the public, various government departments and public organisations. The Gallery also provides information on E&M safety, energy efficiency and career information of the E&M trade for publicity and education purposes.
The EMSD Gallery is now opened to general public during Mondays - Fridays from 9:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. (except public holidays) for self-guided tour.
