Hong Kong Water Race
"The World is Thirsty because We are Hungry"
——Theme of “World Water Day 2012”
Daily consumption and pollution by human activities causes global water scarcity. “Water Footprint” is thus an indicator of water use that refers to the total volume of freshwater directly and indirectly used to produce goods and services. Understanding this concept allows us to make wise decision on sustainable way of living, and conserve the precious resources for our next generation.
“Hong Kong Water Race” is organized by Wofoo Social Enterprises, co-organized by Water Supplies Department, and sponsored by HSBC. Through the means of city orienteering, participants learn the concept of water footprint by visiting scenic spots and public amenities around designated area and completing tasks.
