  • Passionate about sustainability, especially circular economy and ESG.

What we do

V’air Hong Kong is an environmental education organization with the aim of promoting low-carbon local tourism. Before 2015 United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP21), Hong Kong Tertiary Schools COP21 Challenge was organized to invite innovative climate solutions. Tremendous amount of energy is required to power an airplane. Air travelling is a major source of greenhouse gas emission from Hong Kong people, leading to climate change and detrimental effects associated. Promoting local tourism is a solution to reduce large emissions from aviation. Our team came up with V’air and captured the champion. V’air was established since then and continued to operate till today.

Why we do

“V’air” is a homophone to “Vert” in French, which stands for colour green. It displays our vision of making the earth greener. “Air” represents air-travelling. Combining “vert” with “air” means incorporating green and travel. This can be achieved through offering local tours, which resembles the experience of air-travelling. Whilst the government and other NGOs place emphasis on macro-scale environmental protection, V’air focuses on inducing individual behavioural change through four core approaches, namely “experience”, “education”, “empowerment” and “advocacy”.

How we do

V’air is generously supported by Chinese University Social Enterprise Fund, Sustainable Development Promotion Award organized by Environment Bureau, Gold Award of Sunny Passion Programme and Dorsett Young Entrepreneur Scholarship. We have also received wide media coverage from Mingpao, TVB and RTHK. Facing the imminent climate crisis, V’air is determined to dedicate our efforts as youth in influencing Hong Kong people to take a more active role against climate change.
The Internship Programme aims to nurture personal growth and skill development of individuals. We offer precious opportunities for:

• Understanding daily operations of a start-up organization
• Acquiring knowledge on local tourism and environmental education
• Connecting with practitioners and broadening network in the field
