18 Jul 2020 Saturday Family Programme – The Water Challenge

Cancelled: Sadly, we’ve had to cancel all our planned summer family package days, due to changes in Covid-19 recommendations. All paid bookings will be refunded, and we hope to keep you informed on when we can start up the programme again.

Overview

Hong Kong is privileged to access to water in our homes, our schools and our playgrounds, but what is life like, around the world, for the 2.2 billion people who don’t have good access to water. Come and join this experiential, fun, family-friendly program, explore what life is like without access to water, and see what you can do to make a difference.
