11 June 2014, Hong Kong – "Raise your voice, not the sea level" is United Nation Environment Programme's commitment for World Environment Day (WED) this year. It is the opportunity for everyone to realise one does not only bear the responsibility to care for the Earth but also needs to become agents of change. WED was held on 5 June 2014, and Shama encouraged tenants and colleagues to join the 4 pledges: "power down", "reduce your footprint", "go greener" and "purge plastics".
Cartoon The Lorax and a feature documentary film Plasticized was shown at Shama private channel or on iMac at the Management Office from 5 to 8 June 2014. Free seeds and organic shop lists were distributed too.
Shama was also happy to invite Hong Kong Fair Trade Power (HKFTP) to organize a workshop with food demonstration and organic products sale at office. Colleagues had also come up with 5 commandments which also fits in the 4 pledges promoted by UNEP to make the work place greener: "adjust AC temperature to 23-25C", "switch off monitor when away from desk", "switch off lights and AC during lunch hours", "planting", and "open curtains and blinds during day time".
