Bayansulu is a full-time student from Kazakhstan. She is studying Industrial Engineering and Logistics Management. Bayansulu has started her sustainability journey back in the last year of high school when she saw how much paper is being thrown by the administration office of her school every day. When she realized that it is not only her school but all public schools in the city of Almaty that don’t have a recycling system, she felt the urge to intervene. She went to supermarkets, asked for carton boxes and put them in classrooms of her school. 3 months after, she was able to collect 160 kg of paper for recycling. Since then, sustainability was something she always kept in mind, but she wasn’t taking action. This year, she decided to change that and join the Sustainability Office to start living her principles and see how the Office is working to change the world for our campus. She is now working on the Green Ambassador Network, a platform for sustainability-minded students of HKU.

Aster is a master's student majoring in Library and Information Management. After studying environmental science and renewable energy technologies for six years, she realized that technology does not make life as sustainable as we assume, particularly in developing countries, and that educating our next generation to increase their awareness of environmental protection and sustainable development is of central importance. This is not an easy job, but she believes every little effort will count. Start with telling those around you: print on both sides, drink from your own reusable bottle, ask for less food and never waste, turn off lights when you don't need them. Everybody saving a little energy and resources will contribute to a brighter sky in the future.

However, citizens and the government may not realize the importance of biodiversity, and some may even prioritize economic development before conservation. Thus, Joshua believes that environmental education is the next critical step for Hong Kong to work towards.
