Hans Becker Year 3, BSc in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering

I received my BSc in Chemical Engineering from Institute of Technology Bandung, Indonesia and I am now taking a one-year MSc degree program in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering HKUST. I joined the Eco-Reps program because I am very passionate about the issue of sustainability, especially in the aspects of the environment and energy. In the past, I have organised an alternative energy seminar and Southeast Asia energy poster competition. In my spare time, I like reading books and blog articles. I also like to play casual computer games.

Chan Ying Kwan, Jaymes Year 2, BBA

Passion about contributing to the community drove me to teach the local underprivileged teenagers and serve in a social enterprise last year. This year, I am proud to be one of the Eco-Reps to help make our campus more sustainable. Sustainability means more than being green as we are learning more from the program. My team is working on building a garden to revitalize the outdoor area and nurture USTers' green awareness at the same time. We will tell you what sustainability means by actions!

Cheng Oi Shan, Yutie Year 2, BSc in Environmental Management and Technology

I have a good habit of recycling and reusing things to reduce pollution as much as I can. Individual action is far from enough, however, to save our planet. As an Eco-Rep, I hope not to only gain hands-on experience in organizing green events but also raise environmental awareness of UST community. In this semester, my teammates and I will work on a food waste project. Do come to support us and create a sustainable environment for UST together!

Ayushmaan Datta Year 1, BBA

I have been interested in sustainability and the need to protect our environment since high school. Joining this program is the perfect opportunity to make a difference. Through hands-on involvement, mentoring from experts in the field and listening to guest lecturers, I hope to contribute in a small but significant manner to make our HKUST campus a more sustainable one.

Monica Delucia Year 2, BSc in Environmental Management and Technology

I generally enjoy all the wonderful things that life has to offer. I love meeting new people and hearing their stories or even getting random advice from strangers that I encounter during my travels. You heard it, I love to travel! From travelling, the excitement about nature has grown to the feeling of responsibility for our environment. Therefore, I am really glad to be part of Sustainable Campus Leadership Program and hoping to improve the sustainable performance of HKUST Campus as well as bring benefit to nature.

He Kaohong, Stacy Year 2, BSc in Environmental Management and Technology

I have just returned from my winter study trip to Japan, and was inspired a lot by the environmental consciousness and culture concerning environment protection the Japanese has! I hope to make the best use of the knowledge and experiences I have gained to effectively accomplish the "Paper-less UST" project and get more people's efforts to build a more sustainable campus!

Ho Yin Wing, Christy Year 2, BSc in Biology

I'm very happy to be part of this team. I believe that human and nature are in a close relationship that we will be influenced a lot if our nature is destroyed. We therefore have to protect it and make a balance as we are extracting resources from it for our development. Don't be selfish and enjoy the beauty of nature! Even your tiny effort can attribute a lot on the environment! Welcome to the sustainability family :)

Jiang Lei, Alex Year 4, Ph.D. in Biochemistry

I hope to contribute my expertise and knowledge in the Bio-field to change our campus into a sustainable environment.

Kwok Tsz Yan, Ellen Year 2, MPhil in Physics

I am a person who wants to do something for her future children, the next generation and the earth. I feel thankful to the nature and I am amazed by how complex and sophisticated it is. I believe humanity is a part of nature and we should not spoil it. Fun fact, I like labrador retrievers!

Lam Sing Yeung, Sunny Year 3, BSc in Environmental Management and Technology

IAs a student studying in environmental program at HKUST, I hope to facilitate the betterment of this campus in my last year of UG studies, especially in the environmental aspect. In fact, sustainability issues can be found in our everyday life. I hope to practice the concepts learnt to a real setting, and this program offers me a platform to do so. I believe these experiences allow me to investigate how sustainability is being achieved in multiple perspectives and facilitate my motivation for engaging in conservation work in HK afterwards.

Lau Ka Ching, Sharon Year 1, BSc

Being fascinated by the environment, I aspire to contribute to environmental sustainability. I believe it is of paramount importance to consume our resources sustainably and sustainability should be the key principle to any development. As one of the Eco-reps, I am passionate about building a sustainable HKUST community and promoting a green lifestyle. I hope that everyone can join hands and make an effort to better our own living environment, as the life of Mother Earth counts on us, everybody!

Ng Cheuk Wing, Charmaine Year 2, BBA in Marketing and Information System

I remember when I was young, I used to want to be a scientist and save the world. But as I grew older, this childhood "dream" of mind got lost in the realities of life– the studying, the need for a stable career, etcetera. Now, I have finally been given the opportunity to work towards this childhood dream, albeit it being on a much, much, much smaller scale of course. Though my efforts through this program will be more local, I hope that the message it brings will spread throughout our community, such as readers like you, and hopefully create a positive ripple effect!

Byeongkeun Song Year 2, BSc in Chemistry

Before participating in this HKUST sustainability program, I have been active in environmental projects since my high school. I'm currently a Live Green LLC member in Hall 6 and 2013 cohort of Hang Seng Bank-Green Ambassador. So far, I have been enjoying this program and my current concern is about recycling food waste on campus. As for my personal life, I spend my free time listening to rock/electronic music, reading politics blogs, and looking up any unknown Chinese characters I may have encountered. That's right, I'm learning mandarin and I hope I'll be up to conversational level by the time I graduate!

Wong Chun, Arthur Year 2, BBA in Accounting and Finance

In old days, many youngsters admired the gentleman who has taken a step for mankind or another gentleman who spoke of his dream of equality. I used to be one of those, imagining to have accomplished many things one day. Now, I devote to realize one. My humble wish is to help create a more sustainable campus so that I may enjoy the same magnificent scenery here when I retire 40 years later. This is the reason why I join the Eco-reps, where I can get my hands on a practical project and leave my mark in my alma mater.

Wu Lap Pong, Derek Year 1, BSc

Hello! I'm Derek from the school of science, year 1. For those who don't know me, I may look like the serious one; for those who do know me, I may be the humorous one; but for those who know me long enough, I may be the craziest one. Exhilarating and adrenaline-rushing adventures are of no doubt my favourite. Travelling to exotic places and taking cool pictures are also what I love. Environmental threats are imminent to us and I believe acting sustainably is the major trend to the world. Let's make the world a better place together!

Yau Hei Kit, Gary Year 2, BEng in Chemical Engineering

Hey there! I am Gary and I am not aiming at saving the world as one of the eco-reps. However, I hope to teach, inspire and encourage more people to participate in sustainability. Of course, self-learning would be one of my significant goals, and I am really grateful and appreciate all the fellow enthusiasts I have met in the eco-rep program.

I am pretty selfish to join mainly for my own personal reasons, right? Okay, then please tell me face-to-face and I would share more with you. And finally, if you need any help in your work (related to sustainability or other any work), feel free to contact me. I'm serious! Hope to see you!

Zhang Jiabei, Bella Year 2, BEng in Chemical & Bioproduct Engineering

As a student coming from Urumqi, Xinjiang, where the atmosphere is very much polluted because of the heating system often used during winter, I have a deep understanding of the importance of sustainable and healthy environment. Majoring in Chemical engineering, I would like to devote myself to environmental protection by applying my related knowledge.

I returned from my winter study trip to Japan, and was inspired a lot by the environmental consciousness and culture concerning environment protection the Japanese has! I hope to make the best use of the knowledge and experiences I have gained to get more people’s efforts to build a more sustainable campus!
