About Clean Air Challenge

Curated by The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology's Institute for the Environment (HKUST-IENV), "Clean Air Challenge" is a territory-wide student engagement component under the "Clean Air Neighborhood" campaign initiated by Clean Air Network (CAN) with support of The Robert H. N. Ho Family Foundation Hong Kong, aiming to enhance youth empowerment and to raise public literacy on air pollution.

Complementing CAN's District Deep Dive component in Tuen Mun, which actively engages the core partnering school (Tam Lee Lai Fun Memorial Secondary School) and the community stakeholders around it within a 1.5 km radius, "Clean Air Challenge" aims to reach out to all secondary schools in Hong Kong, with the vision to replicate CAN's Tuen Mun community engagement experiences and amplify the impacts to other districts in Hong Kong. The Challenge also aims to empower youths with science and technology skills and knowledge and to encourage them to participate in developing creative solution ideas for solving air pollution problems.

About Clean Air Network

Our vision is to clean up Hong Kong’s air. To achieve this vision, CAN is dedicated to driving policy and behavioral change to improve Hong Kong’s air quality. Without losing sight on air pollution from regional activities, marine vessels and power plants, our current primary focus is on roadside pollution and indoor air impact.


Institute for the Environment (IENV) is an interdisciplinary research institute of HKUST that promotes and conducts research aiming at improving the environment of Hong Kong, the Pearl River Delta (Greater Bay Area), and beyond. We collaborate with a variety of stakeholders, including academic, industrial and environmental non-governmental partners. We will continue to stretch our collaborative efforts and build cross-border synergies with mainland institutions for a greener and healthier Greater Bay Area.
