Green Ambassador Pitch aims to enrich students' understanding about climate change, and encourage them to take action.

F.6 students are invited to form teams to join the programme. Participating teams will devise a plan to get the people around them involved in combating climate change, and present their plans during the pitching day. The pitching day will be staged during the pre-eminent global green building conference World Sustainable Built Environment Conference 2017 Hong Kong (WSBE17 Hong Kong) at Hong Kong Exhibition and Convention Centre on 7 June 2017. Teams will enjoy the golden opportunity to present the ideas in front of renowned judges and international delegates.

To prepare for the pitching, participating teams will attend workshops on green building knowledge, community green works and public speaking skills in May 2017. A green building professional mentor will also be assigned to each team.
