    • Safety At Work

      Safety At Work

      Serious work accidents in recent years have raised concerns about occupational safety and labour rights. The pandemic has forced some workers to compromise safety for work. As the epidemic has been gradually subsiding, many construction projects have resumed. However, the subcontracting practice in the construction industry has led to poor communication between top management and the workers, leading to safety issues being overlooked and accidents occurring.

      The government aims to establish a safe working environment by encouraging better communication between workers and employers. They also hope to enhance occupational safety through amendments to legislation, including imposing stricter penalties on employers who neglect safety. To avoid injuries and fatal industrial accidents, how can the community help improve working conditions and take preventive measures for workers?

    • Water: A Precious Resource

      Water: A Precious Resource

      Approximately 80% of Hong Kong's fresh water is sourced from the Dongjiang River. However, due to the impact of global climate change, the Dongjiang River basin has experienced the most severe drought in over 50 years in the past two years. The water department in China has urged the public to conserve water.

      With the reliable supply of Dongjiang water, people in Hong Kong may not be fully aware of the significance of water conservation. However, we should be prepared for potential water shortages and explore alternative water sources, such as desalination. It is even more crucial for the public to cherish and preserve our precious water resources, as every drop of water is precious.

      In modern society, the number of vegetarians is increasing and the vegetarian population is getting younger. Vegetarianism is no longer a religion or doctrine, and vegetarians do not consider themselves to be morally superior. Choosing a vegetarian diet is simply choosing a dietary habit that is beneficial to one's health, respects lives of the others, cares for the environment, and conforms to natural laws. Vegetarianism has gradually become a lifestyle that is in line with the trend of the times.

      Vegetarian culture is also gradually becoming popular in Hong Kong. Some people are worried that vegetarianism may lead to malnutrition, while others say that it promotes health. Regardless, vegetarianism has become a trend and a culture.

      Women in Need, From Street to Shelter

      Hong Kong is a prosperous city, but the issue of the homeless persists. Figures from the Social Welfare Department reveal a rise in their numbers, yet few pay attention to the women among them. According to research conducted by service agencies, women become homeless for many different reasons. Apart from finance, substance abuse, or other health problems, higher emotional dependence is also a key cause.

      Yet, support for homeless women is insufficient because most of the services for the homeless are catered to men. There are few accommodations for women, and mental healthcare is less than enough. What can we do? How can the society support homeless women?
