From 12 April – 12 May 2017, the cabins of the Hong Kong Observation Wheel will be decorated with the 40 winning designs from teams of Hong Kong primary school students, allowing them to creatively express marine conservation messages and a call for action for the general public to help protect the oceans.

 

The glass panels on the deck area of the Hong Kong Observation Wheel have been decorated with illustrations on the harmful impact of marine pollution to marine animals, and actions that the general public can take to alleviate the problem.

 

Each student from the winning teams will receive four complimentary entrance tickets to the Hong Kong Observation Wheel, a delicious authentic Belgian Waffle with a refreshing drink.

 

The winning teams are invited to the Prize Presentation Ceremony for the Competition, which will be held on 12 April 2017 at the Hong Kong Observation Wheel to unveil their winning designs and celebrate the collective creativity and their young conservation credentials of these talented young artists.

 

To further support the research, public education and conservation efforts by OPCFHK, the Hong Kong Observation Wheel will also donate 1% of its revenue from the sales of entrance tickets in the month of April 2017 to OPCFHK.

 

“The Hong Kong Observation Wheel is delighted to be joining hands with OPCFHK for the second time. We are amazed by the very colourful designs and students’ knowledge in protecting our environment, and are sure that visitors young and old can benefit from the additional education element of their experience at the Hong Kong Observation Wheel.” expressed Timothy Peirson-Smith, Spokesperson of the Hong Kong Observation Wheel.

 

“We are so proud to work with Hong Kong Observation Wheel for the second time to promote marine conservation at one of Hong Kong’s famous landmarks. Through this “Spin for Survival” month and the cabin design competition, we would like to emphasise that each of us can contribute our part to help the wild animals and the planet. We only have to take actions as simple as bringing our own water bottles, or saying no to plastic straws to reduce the amount of plastic disposables that might end up disposed in the ocean. We are very grateful that the Hong Kong Observation Wheel renders their support and provides a very good platform to promote conservation actions to the community.” said Suzanne Gendron, Director of Ocean Park Conservation Foundation, Hong Kong.

 

The collaboration is supported by the Hong Kong Biodiversity Strategy and Action Plan (BSAP) of the Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department of the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region.

HKTB Chairman Dr Peter Lam said: “Since its debut, the CCB (Asia) Hong Kong Wine & Dine Festival has become one of the most anticipated mega events of the year. It draws a large number of festival-goers, both tourists and locals, and is widely reported in global media, so it generates a lot of international exposure for the city. This year, we are expanding the scale of the event, presenting fine wines from 26 countries and an enriched variety of gastronomic delights in the five distinct themed zones for all the participants’ enjoyment. The HKTB would like to thank our sponsors and participating partners, especially China Construction Bank (Asia), for making this event possible. We also appreciate the continued support from all the government departments and related organisations.”

Originated from the Bank of Canton, the first Chinese-owned bank in Hong Kong since 1912, next year would be CCB (Asia)’s 105th anniversary. Over the past hundred years, we have witnessed the rapid development of this city. The Bank actively
