健康空氣學生組織

健康空氣學生組織(CASC)是健康空氣行動(CAN)的青年支部。

成立學生組織的想法始於 2019 年,當時一群充滿熱情的學生自製空氣監測儀器,在不同學校進行空氣監測。CASC 於 2020 年正式命名及成立,旨在教育學生了解空氣污染,賦予社區權力,並參與各種清潔空氣行動。

CASC 目前由來自六所學校的 20 多名 14 至 18 歲的學生組成。CASC 一直尋找機會擴充,以吸納更多來自本地和國際學校的學生加入空氣教育運動。

香港健康空氣會議

健康空氣學生組織已連續五年主辦香港健康空氣會議。健康空氣會議是一年一度的活動,參與的中學生可分享空氣污染知識。每年會議都有不同的主題,讓來自本地和國際學校的學生都能參與學習,聆聽演講並參加不同的活動。

二氧化氮空氣採樣行動
2021年「世界地球日」二氧化氮空氣採樣行動

The theme of this year’s competition was “Breath of Change”. This concept suggests that we hope to empower students to advocate for clean air, becoming catalysts for change. Through our prompts, contestants were able to think outside of the box, and learn more about clean air itself. The judges, Ms Melody Kwok, an English teacher from St. Paul’s Co-educational College, and Mr Melville Pradhan, the project manager of CAN, agreed that each individual’s speech was inspiring.

As the Clean Air Student Council, we have successfully pioneered the first ever youth-led environmental public speaking competition, which is truly groundbreaking for the whole council. Indeed, having a chance to advocate for what you are passionate about is rare. CASC encourages all passionate students to voice out their passions of making the world a better place, and to continue promoting and advocating for clean air in Hong Kong. 

With attendees from 28+ schools, we have handed prizes of almost $4000 to the winners of the competition. Congratulations to the following winners:

Right up front, see the chemicals which play major roles in air pollution, then grasp the gist of the problems we are living with under the same sky. We channel the countries striving for cleaner air, and find out how technological innovations are driving smog-free cities forward. An all-encompassing view, the Magazine is a perfect start for deepening your understanding of the issue of air pollution.
CASC Magazine

計劃目的是讓學生參與活動,提高他們對空氣質素的認知。在2021年「世界地球日」,港島中學、智新書院及聖保羅男女中學的學生獲發試管,他們會利用這些試管在香港各區收集數據。這些試管會跟在街道常見的污染物二氧化氮產生反應。兩星期後,試管會送往英國化驗室進行分析。學生製作出一份報告,分析全港不同地區的空氣質素及趨勢,及建議改善空氣污染問題的方法。
