  1. Lights Out Campaign Group members: William Jesselle Janet Iris

  2. What is Lights Out Campaign? • Turn off the lights for three minutes on August 8 at 8pm • Many big companies with harbourfront offices joined the government- sponsored Symphony of lights show as normal.

  3. The imperfect campaign • The government ignored the Lights Out Campaign . • The campaign promotion was insufficient • Residents consider environment conservation as an insignificant affair

  4. A three minute lights out is simply not enough. • Many company have joined the campaign but still turn on lights as usual. • Although lights are turn off, air conditioners, fridges and so on were all running as usual.

  5. Reason for the compaign • 1. Ease the problem brought by air pollution • 2. Provide better living environment for unborn child and all the children • 3. Send a symbolic environmental message to everyone about saving energy and cutting air pollution • 4. To heighten concerns about air pollution and energy abuse. • 5. Many Hong Kongers have health problems such as asthma because of air pollution.

  6. Reason against the campaign 1.Spoil the international image of Hong Kong->affect the potential visitors 2.Loss the revenue brought by tourism industry 3.Insufficient to change HongHongers‘ inconsiderate behaviour 4.Focus on a quality-of-life issue that affects us all

  7. Comment • The government's promotion and education should not only be aimed at students, but also at the whole of society • Government should lay down clear policy and legislation on energy conservation, particularly in the way power companies were regulated.

  8. Power firms should be assigned targets to help industries or commercial premises to cut energy use. Meeting the targets could give them financial rewards • People should switch off idling engines and use fewer plastic bags to save environment.
