    Waste Reduction after Major Events / Space Object Oumuamua

    On Wednesday's Backchat, cutting waste at events. The EPD and the Business Environment Council are targetting major community events such as the Standard Chartered Marathon, the Victoria Park Flower Market and the Wine and Dine Festival suggesting how to avoid the production of waste, effective ways to collect and handle recyclable items, and how to take care of leftovers by donating to food banks and people in need. They've learned from events like the Sevens which halved the amount of waste in recent years. What's the secret - incentives? Threats? Education? Where else can you see opportunities to clear up? Call us on 23388266 or email backchat@rthk.hk. After 9.20, Oumuamua, a visitor from deep space.

    Recognition of Same-Sex Marriage in Hong Kong / Massive messaging between parents and teachers

    On Friday's Backchat, we’ll be asking: Has Hong Kong moved a step closer to recognizing same sex marriage after a landmark court judgment upheld the right of a gay civil servant to claim the same benefits for his spouse as his heterosexual colleagues. The judge in the case did emphasize that he was not ruling on whether same sex marriages should be allowed in Hong Kong, describing that controversial question as a matter which should be decided by Legco not the courts. But some Christian groups are not convinced and have angrily denounced the judgment, in some cases using extremely strong language. So what do you think? Is Hong Kong ready to recognize same sex marriages? After 9.20, should Hong Kong teachers have a “right to disconnect” from instant messages sent by parents?(8:30-9:30am, call in on 233 88 266, email backchat@rthk.hk or text 6393 5925)
