Carry on the past effort to open up the future goals!
Throughout the years, Clean Air Network (CAN in short) has grown into one of the most influential NGOs urging the Hong Kong government for air quality policy improvement by presenting active voices on media and public education. It has developed experience and skills on knowledge building, strategic collaboration, and advocacy of sustainable solutions.
Furthermore, CAN has established strong network with the social groups including experts & professionals in the field of public health, medical health, urban planning, transportation; as well as the community groups of patients, underprivileged and schools etc. joining hands to voice out this specific social issue.
By having successfully pushed for progress to review Air Quality Objectives and a number of landmark policy changes regarding roadside and marine emissions, improvement has been seen in the ambient and roadside air condition in Hong Kong.
As we are moving to the next phase, we hope to press on to our goals by expanding and strengthening our senior bench, which consists of two new directors and four new advisors. They are from diverse background and expertise of finance, technology and international community.
