Breathe Strong in...{Hong Kong}

Introduction of an interactive and user-experience event to raise sustainable awareness within the community!

The group "Breathe strong in... {Hong Kong}" is dealing with the crucial air pollution by introducing an interactive, user-centered and sustainable event (The park "awAIRness") touching all the senses of human nature.

Objective:

The objective is to raise awareness within the community to address, reduce and experience the serious air pollution which impacts the entire well-being of human.

Task:

In the context of the city of Hong Kong, the idea is to introduce a car-free Hong Kong, blocking some main roads for pedestrians and runners.

Some initiatives:

- Vendors/Retailers will be selling sustainable products, eg. organic products by providing stalls/booths
- NGOs will be given space to educate the audience
- Introduction of an enclosed area to fill with cleanest air by applying a patented air filter (Swiss technology) - serve as a benchmark of accomplishment
- Implementing of a race track to promote the unique environment and nature of Hong Kong in cooperation with sport-equipment corporations and the HK Tourism Board
- ...

The frequency of this event can be tailored individually due to the location restrictions.

This event should be considered as a template and serve as best practice for further roll-outs.
