Asian Consortium of 10 Day Fest / Social Innovation Festival

Over the weekend I was honoured to join the Asian Consortium, a programme of the uber-inspiring 10Day Fest. Last year’s 10 Day Fest made itself quite a talk of the town and this year’s line-up was astonishing. Urban farming, upcycling exhibition, screenings of Taste the Wasteand Menstrual Man, etc. And the Asian Consortium conference, of which I was one of the speakers, connected potential and…

The days of riots

It is a day of mixed feelings. After a month of revision the exam of Environmental Science and Management finally came. I was to put that I have learnt to the answer book.

While I tried almost every single way to relax myself, the rising tension from the steamy Occupy Central with Love and Peace grabbed my heart away. Last night I switched on the television, which had been silently off and dark…

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/kallionyc/kallio-workshop/widget/video.html

Not long ago we called for donations of used shirts for Smiley Planet‘s upcycling project by Lastbutnotleast. I though the idea of upcycling used shirts into aprons was superb. So it just astonished me to see Kallio’s Kick-Starter campaign and how it takes the art of ucpcycled shirts to even higher ground!

September 21 – our birthday – was the big day for People’s Climate March. In NYC it came for the climate denying Republicans; but in other cities the word ‘climate’ was interpreted diversely. After all,…

想說很久,是關於新界東北發展計劃的

想說很久,是關於新界東北發展計劃的。但將其定性為一個「發展」計劃其實亦不盡恰當。如果發展的定義是為了進步、為了將來福祉的話,那就更加是風馬牛不相及。就當是瀾漫地相信大興木土是如官網所指為了「促進香港繁榮經濟」、「應付長遠的房屋需求及提供更多的就業機會」,構思出此話者絕對是目光短淺、思想狹窄到不稱職的地步。

問過高度關注議題的朋友,也看了張超雄議員叫人拍案叫絕的肺腑之言,也讀盡發展局那堆明顯著理曲辭窮的所謂解釋。

我想說:朋友們,我們要反對新界東北的理據還有很多﹗

梁振英在記者前言之鑿鑿地說:以前沒有少眾居民犧牲,哪來新市鎮。為了全體人民的利益著想,而要犧牲少數群組,這是本utilitarianism…
