Po Leung Kuk Laws Foundation College - Hong Kong
"The idea of having a Green Roof was initially suggested by the Principal and science teachers. The funding (HKD $453,000) by the Environmental Campaign Committee (ECC) came at an opportune moment for us. Further approval by the Education Bureau (EDB) and Building Department (BD) has shown the LFC's commitment to its educational mission -- not only to the intellectual growth of our students, but also to contribute ourselves in environmental conservation and sustainable development. In September 2011, Po Leung Kuk Laws Foundation College celebrated the opening of its new Green Roof garden."
