Staff of our ECD's Regional Offices are standing members of various environment-related committees under the 18 DCs.  They attend regularly DCs' committees meetings providing environmental advice and solutions to local environmental problems.  They also attend, when necessary, DCs' full board meetings and other DCs' committees meetings to address local environmental issues.

Other than meetings, our ECD staff also conduct joint site visits with district councillors, local communities and other local area parties, such as residents, owners' committees, rural committees, village representatives, to address their concerns on environment.

Such visits not only help to resolve local environmental issues, but also provide our staff with opportunities to explain EPD's works to the parties involved and enhance our networks with district councillors and relevant stakeholders.

Having established networks with the local communities, our ECD staff are often invited to participate in and also organize different kinds of district environmental promotional activities with local community groups, like talks/seminars, exhibitions, prize-giving ceremonies, carnivals, environmental campaigns and competitions. Through participating in these various activities, it is hoped that the environmental awareness and knowledge of the general public can be further enhanced.
