Environmental education in Hong Kong schools has traditionally existed on the margins, supported by the community-based Environmental Campaign Committee (ECC) and its core programs – particularly the Hong Kong Green School Awards (HKGSA) and Student Environmental Protection Ambassador Scheme (SEPAS) – which have been in place since at least 2000. Theoretically it would seem likely that schools would therefore be well placed to implement the New Secondary School Curriculum (NSSC), which requires environmental education to be included within a core subject, Liberal Studies, but research into these programs reveals that there are many unanswered questions about the readiness of schools to use this opportunity to optimum effect.
