The Jockey Club Museum of Climate Change (MoCC) of The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) celebrated its 10th Anniversary and held the ‘MoCC Scholars’ Inauguration Ceremony last Saturday, 16 December.

Officiating at the ceremony were Dr Lam Ching Choi, Chairman of the Council for Carbon Neutrality and Sustainable Development, Professor Rocky S Tuan, Vice-Chancellor and President of CUHK, Dr Rebecca Lee, Founder of the Polar Museum Foundation, Professor Anthony T.C. Chan, Pro-Vice-Chancellor and Vice-President (Alumni Relations and Advancement) of CUHK, Mrs Cecilia Lam, Director of the CUHK Jockey Club Museum of Climate Change, and Ms Natalie Chung, MoCC Scholar of CUHK Jockey Club Museum of Climate Change.

In his welcome address, Professor Tuan noted that CUHK, as a socially responsible university, upholds the principle of sustainable development and is committed to achieving carbon neutrality by 2038. The MoCC, being the first museum of its kind in the world, was established in 2013 with the generous support of The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust to inspire public participation in climate action. “Through a decade of continuous efforts, the MoCC has become the major outreach arm of the University’s sustainability and climate education programmes,” said Professor Tuan, “The MoCC has hosted over 1.5 million exhibition visitors since its inception through its community-based education efforts.”

The Guest of Honour, Dr Lam Ching-choi, said, "Hong Kong has set bold carbon reduction targets and strives to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050. To lead Hong Kong towards this goal of carbon neutrality, the SAR Government has announced the “Climate Action Plan 2050”, targeting major sources of carbon emissions in Hong Kong.” He noted that “CUHK has demonstrated outstanding performance as an example amongst its academic peers in realising carbon reduction." He also expressed his pleasure in seeing that CUHK as a leader in teaching and learning, is making use of the MoCC’s new initiative "MoCC Scholars" to cultivate outstanding CUHK alumni into a new generation of green leaders, and provides them with institutional support for their involvement in environmental affairs and climate action. He congratulated Ms Natalie Chung on becoming the inaugural MoCC Scholar, and looked forward to working with these young sustainability enthusiasts to achieve carbon neutrality and sustainable development of Hong Kong.
