Congratulations to the winners of the 2nd Rotary Carbon Reduction Video Competition (“Competition”). The theme of the competition is ”Carbon Zero as it glams, Plastic Zero as it trends”. We have received 78 videos from 35 secondary schools this year. The purpose of the Competition is to promote the awareness of carbon and plastic reduction amongst our youths.

The Gold Award and The Most Influential Video were shown for a week from 22 April 2024 (The Earth Day) at the outdoor TV Wall in Times Square.
