The CUHK Jockey Club Museum of Climate Change (MoCC) will launch the Mobile Exhibition “The Fading Colours of Coral” in October 2023, to showcase potential threats of climate change on marine ecology, with the aim of inspiring students to adopt new thinking and take practical action to address climate change.
Programme Details (Chinese version only)
The exhibits in this section are based on the valuable collection from Dr Rebecca Lee, the renowned environmentalist and explorer, built through her lifelong fieldwork in the "Three Poles" (the North Pole, the South Pole and Mount Everest) and network with research institutes in mainland China. This collection offers a vivid demonstration to visitors on global warming and climate change, as well as the macroscopic impacts.
Remote Sensing and Environmental Monitoring is a collection of interactive multimedia presentation of the many types of environmental and climate information derived from Earth-orbiting satellites and other advanced technology. The visitors will be able to explore by themselves, through the application of geo-information science, how the Earth is changing in time and space and how climate change may impact the environment and their daily lives.
Research and Innovation at CUHK showcases the Chinese University’s innovative research results across a wide spectrum of environmental science and energy technology. Visitors are informed of not only the latest research developments and technological advances, but also the future potentials in these fields to combat climate change.
Environmental efforts require the community’s support. The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust has for years supported a significant number of projects to promote environmental protection in Hong Kong. This section presents major initiatives of the Club that have helped pioneer new thinking on how to protect the environment in the local community. With the aid of multimedia interactive exhibits, the exhibition promotes United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 12 – Responsible Consumption and Production – and aims to inspire the visitors to get involved in waste-reduction action and to live a green lifestyle.
The Jockey Club Museum of Climate Change of The Chinese University of Hong Kong (hereafter "the MoCC") built the MoCC Mobile App app as a Free app. This SERVICE is provided by the MoCC at no cost and is intended for use as is.

The Antarctic, the polar region around the Earth’s South Pole, comprises the continent of Antarctica and the Southern Ocean, which cover respectively nearly a tenth of the Earth’s landmass and a tenth of its sea area. Antarctica is the last great wilderness and the world’s least explored territory. It does not belong to any country and has no indigenous population. Antarctica occupies a vast region 1.5 times as large as China, and only about 1% of its landmass is ice-free. The Southern Ocean, among the planet’s most pristine waters, is rich in fish, minerals and scientific potential.
Antarctica, as geological and geophysical data suggest, was an integral part of the former supercontinent of Gondwana (see ‘Antarctic Geology in Relation to Mineral Resource Potential’ section), and therefore is of great geological interest to plate tectonics specialists. The relatively undisturbed nature of the polar region also provides a baseline for scientific studies, particularly for meteorological and climatic studies, global environmental studies, and studies seeking to explain the origins of the universe and of life on our own planet.
The Antarctic Treaty (see ‘Antarctic Treaty System and Environmental Protocol’ section), seeks to protect the values of the Antarctic. These include the natural environment and associated ecosystems, its wilderness and aesthetic values, and its value as an area where scientific research can be conducted.
Geographical map of Antarctica Tourists flock to Antarctica during the austral summer, the only time when the continent is accessible. They mostly travel through Argentina and Chile, the closest inhabited countries to Antarctica. Some tourists may also arrive from other countries in the Southern Hemisphere, notably Australia, New Zealand and South Africa.
