Hong Kong is known as a "food paradise", but according to its outstanding cuisine, the problem of food waste is far worse than other countries. About one-third of the garbage discarded every day in Hong Kong is food waste from household levels. Faced with crises such as the saturation of landfills and the destruction of the environment caused by large amounts of waste. Nearly two-thirds of poor families are in a food-deficient state. They often lack food or fail to afford high-nutrient foods, leading to unbalanced diets and health issues. These are issues that we have to think about. At the same time, food waste has a major impact on the environment, society and economy. For example, when climate action is still drastically increasing, if all the losses before the consumption link are taken into account, 8%-10% of global greenhouse gas emissions are related to unconsumed food.

To be a Young Pioneer, what you DO is more important than what you SAY!

Words don't transform the world. It is one thing to say that you want to solve a social problem, but another thing to do something about it. However, we should not just blindly act in whatever way that we feel is most appropriate, we must act intentionally and with empathy. It's not always easy to decide or understand what actions are the right ones to take, especially when there are so many critical global challenges to choose from.

“As you very well know by now, we are nothing without your actions. When we start to take actions toward the Zero Hunger (SDG2), we can never expect perfection, we must only strive for progress. We will trip, stumble and fall along the way, but if we wait for the right to time to start to act, we will waste away all of the time remaining until 2030.”
