內容簡介:

有沒有曾經想像,沒有石油,我們所居住的城市、我們的生活有何改變呢?事實上,我們可耗用石油的日子愈來愈短了,繼續耗用它或是會有其他出路……?

1990年,隨着蘇聯瓦解,古巴的石油供給一下子降到三分之一以下,繼而缺乏石油的日子包括: 間歇性不定期的供電,路上的車子都不能加汽油,街上的店舖買不到東西,失去依賴進口的化學肥料與殺蟲劑,令到整個國家面臨食物短缺甚至農業崩潰的困境

不過,後來呢? 透過合作與節約,古巴展現的集體智慧足以敲醒沉溺在石油中的世界。片中清楚表達了許多古巴人的信念:生活在充滿自然限制的島嶼上,必須意識自然資源有限

古巴不僅奇蹟式的度過人民生存的嚴苛考驗,而且似乎活的比過去更好。被訪談的許多古巴人說,他們不僅發展出新的經濟生活、都市設計、社區生活方式,而且,恐怕更重要的是,他們有了不同的價值來看待這世界,可更掌握自己生活的價

簡單的說,當他們被迫要在能源匱乏的現實生活時,他們便逐漸發展出新的社會與經濟生活方式,他們發現︰其實過去依賴大量消耗能源、高度機械化農業、高度都市集中等並非是唯一或最合理的生活方式。 一個能更保育自然環境的農業生一個更有親密合作的社區關係、一個能更擺脫過度物質化的簡單生活,或許才是一個更快樂的人生。

這會是一部非常鼓舞人心的記錄片 !!

7.1 炎炎夏日,參與遊行的朋友堅守信念,表達訴求。

我們繼6.4回收後,也再來為上街的市民補水、推廣環境教育,以及做回收!

這次,我們需要更多義工在更大的範圍內進行以上工作。

因此,我們很需要您的參與和支持,向所有市民傳遞遊行不忘綠的信息。

夏日秘訣: 「少碳世界迎大暑」+「宜收風」

13466447_1087534357997305_2795608935056779433_n 13508928_1087534364663971_7147631055234977892_n

找回了前兩年替長春社做的「綠活日誌」Carelendar度炎夏的Tips 「少碳世界迎大暑」及「宜收風」, 和大家分享。

我是一向不開冷氣的人。感謝家人一直的支持,共同一起盡量不依賴冷氣,度過許多個炎夏。今年的確是比較難捱!

如果大家在生活上再不開始作點改變,天氣只會一年比一年熱。熱的原因也是惡性循環,越熱越要開冷氣,天氣便會更加熱,心情亦同時更壞。

只要在生活上有些微改變就有希望,其中最要鍛煉的是要去調適自己,去平衡及適應這個世界,當然包括現時的天氣。🙏🏻

學生專欄: 「綠色讚歌」 Green Paean

今年四月份香港大學明德學院四年級語言及傳意系(Language and Communication)學生 Kammy 梁文蒨就讀的Feature Writing and Publishing 科目,探討近年來香港市民對環保和綠色生活文化的意識和認知逐漸提升,與此同時,更有不同的綠色發明或科技 (green inventions/eco-inventions) 陸續面世。 本人有幸獲Kammy 邀請就有關上述議題進行訪問,內容關於綠色發明能否有效地推廣或促進香港的綠色生活文化。 感謝Kammy給我在此公諸同好!

Kammy的話:

In recent years, Hong Kong citizens gradually increase the awareness of environmental protection and green living with the increase of the related issues and news reported. A whole lot of eco-inventions are popping up to the society with the goal of fostering and achieving the green lifestyle, but do they really work?

A feature story “Green Paean” is written by Kammy Leung, a student at Centennial College majoring language and communication, it aims to explore and discuss the relationship between green living and the eco-inventions profoundly through an interview with a local environmentalist Betty Lam Lai Shan (also known as Green Mama).

Green-inventions are expected to take effect in this digital generation, however, it seems to have an unexpected outcome…

近年來,隨著許多有關環保和綠色生活的議題和新聞被報導及討論,香港市民對環保和綠色生活文化的意識逐漸提升。很多各式各樣的綠色發明或科技陸續面世以促進綠色生活,但它們是否真的起了作用?

一位就讀於明德學院主修語言與傳意的本科生梁文蒨撰寫了一篇專欄,名為「綠色讚歌」,透過訪問「綠色媽媽」林麗珊,深入探討綠色生活與綠色科技發明之間的關係。

環保發明理應能有效地促進綠色生活,但它似乎並不是預料中的那樣……

呼籲會去6.4燭光晚會的朋友……

13241126_271071766576716_5770930642540795965_n
6.4燭光晚會、7.1遊行……香港每年有多個萬人空巷嘅大型集會,你可能都係其中一張面孔。每次集會完結之後,地面總有大量垃圾——可能係膠樽,可能係場刊單張,快餐發泡膠盒……林林總總。你可能會當呢啲野係常態,覺得總會有人清理。

實情係:礙於清場時間緊逼、回收箱數目不足、欠缺指示和宣傳、人手不足等的原因,令大部分可回收再造嘅資源,如紙張、膠樽、鋁罐等無法得到妥善處理,白白被棄置到堆填區。

大家現身集會悼念同爭取權利和公義果陣,有無諗下其實呢幾個鐘,我地不必要咁浪費用左大量資源,賠上環境代價?

我地舊年十幾人自發於6.4燭光晚會完結後搞廢物分類和回收,結果都唔差嫁,證明香港人仲有保護自己環境嘅心!(上年回收統計可留意 相簿:2015年6.4回收情況)

但係維園會場面積實在好大,我地十多個義工聲嘶力竭咁叫,要處理咁多廢物實在十分吃力,所以我哋好需要你一齊,同我哋推動同埋實踐回收工作!

你嘅一分力,可以令更多的資源得到新生命!今年6月4日,就讓我們「毋忘垃圾」,你唔係唔嚟呀?

Rely on ‘Green Mama’ to be on the frontline in Hong Kong battle against waste

(Post: 01/06/2016,South China Morning Post)

Eco-warrior turns her Tai Po home into storage space to save perfectly good unwanted items from landfill.

scmp

“I once saw a brand new toilet, still wrapped in plastic, chucked at a refuse site. So I asked the cleaning ladies to keep it there for a couple of days while I found it a new owner,” she recalls.

Lam has used her own Tai Po home as temporary storage space to save perfectly functional goods or food from a wasteful end in the landfill. “I get a little overzealous sometimes and my husband tells me off for hoarding,” she laughs.

With a strong desire to connect unwanted items with new owners, Lam first began maintaining a small email network of people who might know those who might know someone who might want such things.

Step by step, her community grew.

When she came across the online concept of “green mapping”, she ended up kick-starting her own local version.

The idea is to map out “green spots” in your community—such as recyclers, bag and shoe repairers, veggie restaurants—to help create a more environmentally friendly lifestyle.

Her brainchild, about to be officially relaunched as wherevergreen.hk later this month, aims to create a virtual eco-village, where environmentally conscious “villagers” across Hong Kong may connect and share the tidbits of such a lifestyle via the web platform.

The project has not been easy. “I am technologically clueless,” Lam admits.

But she does what simple things she can, such as setting up a “Hong Kong regional green-living mapper team” Facebook group, which gathers contributors who help build content for the local green map.

And she counts her blessings when it comes to getting help for the work that requires technical know-how, from design to IT. “I’ve been so lucky to have met the right people with the right skills.”

But, she adds, with a twinkle in her eye, “The website doesn’t have English content translated yet.”

It’s her willingness to continue taking steps forward, no matter how small, that makes a difference.

Despite a lack of technological expertise, she took part in a hackathon in 2014, contributing what she could—her ideas and experience—to those who possessed the online skills.

Her team ended up winning a prize with their proposal for venue.hk, a platform for those with spare—wasted—space, be it a garden or a room for piano lessons or conferences, to share with those needing a venue.

Lam, who has also published a bookaimed at “bringing up children in a non-toxic home”, has been nominated by the Conservancy Association for a Cultural Preservation award in the SCMP’s Spirit of Hong Kong Awards.

She is a firm believer in the need for humans to live more eco-consciously, likening it to her “religion”. But Lam is quick to point out she is wary of being preachy with it. “The core idea is respect,” she says, “be it life, our planet or each other.

“And if you’re in people’s faces with your belief, you’re just pushing them away.”

It used to be frustrating for her: for all the efforts some put into making the world a better place, others seem to care little.

“Then I learned ‘Zen’,” says Lam, who practises meditation. “I realised it can be easy to lose the ‘spirit’ of it. If you get angry or frustrated, that’s no longer the healthy living you were seeking.”

She has learned to let go. “You do your own part, that’s all you can do.”
