Help Clean Up HK's Air!

Given the crescendo of talk about air pollution in Hong Kong, I thought that it would be fitting to invite Joanne Ooi, Founder of the Clean Air Network (, to Web Wednesday on 2nd December (Final Social Mixer of 2009!) to give us a few words about how her environmental NGO is planning to "clean up HK's filthy air by educating and mobilizing the public about the health impacts of air pollution".

Here's a very powerful - and quite horrific - video that HKCAN has produced, titled "停止呼吸! Breathing Not Allowed (健康空氣行動Clean Air Network)". Not for the faint of heart! You have been warned.

Become part of the movement to clean up our local air, sign the petition now: English | Chinese.
