The partnership bridges L’Oréal’s sustainability pursuit of respecting planetary boundaries with MoCC’s expertise and leadership on climate change.
Touring Schools to Educate Students About Climate Change
Throughout October, an interactive mobile museum focused on climate change, co-created by L’Oréal Hong Kong and MoCC, is touring 10 different secondary schools in the city to educate and encourage students to take action in response to today’s pressing challenges. The museum will also make a special appearance at Central on the last Sunday in October for the community to experience.
With the theme “Fading Colors of Coral”, the museum aims to raise awareness about climate change and its effects on marine biodiversity, especially the degradation of coral reef ecosystems. The museum is designed to bring together many elements, including educational content, interactive games powered by augmented reality, coral exhibits and a variety of information that allows the public to learn more about climate change in a lively and interesting way. Additionally, a special event and classroom sharing sessions within the museum aim to showcase L’Oréal’s unique approach to green retail and environmental action and inspire students.
“Given this summer’s record-high average temperatures and record rainfall, we must act now before it is too late,” said Eva Yu, President and Managing Director of L’Oréal Hong Kong. “We are delighted to partner with the Museum of Climate Change. This partnership reflects L’Oréal’s two core commitments: empowering youth and protecting the environment, which are deeply linked to our sense of purpose in the beauty industry and beyond, and to inspire the general public to take action and make a real contribution to our ecosystem.” To inspire people to join us in making change.”
“The impact of climate change on our daily lives is becoming increasingly evident; its impact on the marine ecosystem is less well known,” added Professor Rocky S. Tuan, Vice-Chancellor and Chancellor of the Chinese University of Hong Kong. “CUHK is proud to launch this mobile exhibition in collaboration with L’Oréal Hong Kong as part of our Jockey Club Climate Change Museum’s educational and community efforts to further inspire climate action. It is also a testament to our commitment to social responsibility. and sustainable development.”
