UNESCO Hong Kong Association Limited (‘”title Association”) is incorporated in Hong Kong as a company limited by guarantee and granted tax exemption under Section 88 of the Inland Revenue Ordinance. There is no affiliated organization under the Association.
The Association’s mission is “Promoting sustainable development and international exchanges through education, sciences and culture”. We took part in many kinds of activities to promote Peace and Sustainable Development in the past years. Peace includes social peace, political peace, individual peace, cultural peace and ecological peace.
We support the concept of establishing a Peace Garden in Hong Kong to promote the awareness of Peace in our community. The siting, planning and operating for such a Peace Garden must comply with the sustainable development strategy adopted by United Nations through the 17 Sustainable Development Goals including those on the concern and protection of our environment. We believe that development and conservation can go hand-in-hand. Peace Garden will contribute its Peace and build peace in the minds of men and women.
We have learnt that the Peace Garden activity to be held in Pak Lap, Sai Kung on 21 September 2017 will be postponed. The Association did not and will not participate in the siting and planning of this Peace Garden.
