The Hong Kong Government has set its sights on raising Hong Kong people’s quality of life and improving the environment. These two goals are closely related. Environmental improvement inevitably brings health benefits and makes Hong Kong a more attractive and enjoyable place to live. However, the Government cannot achieve these goals on its own. Everyone must recognize they have responsibilities in all aspects of their daily lives to reduce their impacts and help Hong Kong to achieve a more sustainable environment. Thus, our Project “Better environment; Better Health”- Hong Kong Students’ Speech Competition aims at arousing the public concern on the issue and also encourages them to take individual action to create a sustainable environment that will be healthy for present and future generations

Sustainability is not a new word to the globe, in fact the concept was once suggested academically originated from Lester Brown’s book (1980) , defining such term to be meeting the needs of the present generation without compromising the ability of future generations to do the same. This is the base of sustainability. Sustainability is therefore bringing benefits to human and the planet earth without costing. It is definitely a crucial thinking direction for policy-makers, communities, as well as everyone particular young people who are going to build our future society. Raising awareness among younger generation is like investing, since the society tomorrow comprises chiefly the young people today, and hopefully results in a holistic approach in the development process. Besides, sustainability is increasingly viewed as a desired goal of development in many aspects and environmental management; therefore, it is no doubt an inevitable element to be considered. To cease further exploitation and unhealthy development within the ecosystem, the contest takes a preventive step to educate. “Ensure Sustainability, Preserve our Planet” Hong Kong Composition Contest for Youth 2014 advocates the importance of sustainability and raises the awareness in preserving our planet earth. It stimulates adolescence, and so as the general public readers, to rethink the importance of sustainability and how should sustainability be achieved.
