Tsuen Wan Environmental Resource Centre - a joint venture with the private sector

PhotoFollowing the success of the first Environmental Resource Centre in Wan Chai, the Environmental Protection Department established its second resource centre in Tsuen Wan in 1997 to further reach out to the public in promoting environmental education and awareness. The Centre was converted from a traditional Hakka style Hoi Pa village house which was built in 1904 and was declared as a monument in 1986 by the Antiquities Authority. It was a joint venture between the government and the private sector in that both the Woo Wheelock Green Fund and the Environment and Conservation Fund funded the renovation cost of the centre. It is also the first attempt to contract out an environmental resource centre to a local green group for operation with a view to maximizing the use of available resources in promoting environmental protection, education and awareness in Hong Kong. The Green Power has been awarded the contract to operate the Centre.
