NESS aims at uniting different fields and expertise so as to combat climate-related issues. Our partners range from institutions, businesses who are providing our audience with sustainable products, and supporting organizations that are helping the NESS team reach our potential audience.
Climate week is a week of youth-driven actions and awareness-raising for climate change and sustainable development in Hong Kong.
