  • Alternatives | First Semester 2016-17 Play all

    GE has endeavoured to curate co-curricular programmes that are creative and proactive in order to develop a collegial, flexible, pluralistic and supportive intellectual environment since 1995. In this semester, we try to build our programmes along the theme of “Alternatives”.

    We will probe into the theme through a wide range of activities listed below. Our Student Team (GEST) is recruiting members throughout the year to let your talents shine and to share some happy hours at the Gatherland.

    We believe that the questions of why and how are highly essential in your intellectual journey. There is always more than one way out. To flourish during your HKU journey, please remember that we are definitely one of your options.

    Climatic Catastrophe and Green Energy
    氣候災變與綠能革命
    聯合國氣候峰會剛在巴黎結束,為了阻止地球溫度不斷上升而引發不可收拾的環境災劫,各國領袖原則上同意在2050年之前,全面棄用煤和石油等會釋放二氧化碳的化石燃料,而轉用沒有二氧化碳排放的可再生能源。也就是說,我們已經進入一個全面「去碳」的嶄新時代。

    然而,富可敵國的跨國化石燃料產業是如此龐大的既得利益集團,它們會乖乖的坐以待斃嗎?此外,太陽能和風能等可再生能源如今只佔全球能源供應的2%左右,我們有可能將這個百份比在三十多年內提升50倍嗎?這個關乎人類生死存亡的問題既充滿了挑戰也充滿了機遇,年輕人應該如何掌握這些機遇迎接挑戰?


    The 21st Conference of Parties summit (COP21) took place at the end of 2015. Heads of states agreed in general to spell the end for coal and other fossil fuels before 2050 hoping to prevent a climatic catastrophe caused by Global Warming. As we switch to renewable energy, we are also entering the zero-carbon era.

    While fossil fuel industry revenues some trillions a year, will the state leaders support an agreement that hampers their ability to develop and profit? Renewable energy currently contributes a mere 2% to the global energy supply. Are we likely to be able to increase this percentage 50 times in around 30 years? The fate of the world hangs in the balance, depending on our responses to these questions. How can we rise up to this defining challenge of the 21st century?
