原來社區導賞、公平貿易與永續發展三者,也能相輔相成?

在過去一年,街坊帶路獲香港公平貿易聯盟合作,參與「環保基金 — — 石縫中的公平永續生機」的籌辦,招覽跨年齡層的社區持份者,培訓他們成為社區導賞員,以環境永續為主題,設計出五條全新的社區導賞路線,以向公眾推廣本地永續發展概念。

共25團的公眾導賞團已順利完成,香港公平貿易聯盟亦於上星期三(1月11日)舉行活動閉幕禮。作為合作伙伴和頒獎嘉賓之一,我見證著參與的大學生(學生大使)和退休人士(樂齡大使),在社區導師指導下的成長;在典禮上,也聽到參加者分享因跨代文化而出現的溝通誤點等等的趣事,更加肯定本次活動對連結社區不同持份者的意義和價值。

這五條特色導賞團路線分別為:
「遊走鐘環的磚瓦」(新舊建築的可持續設計對比)
「『堅』生園」(再生農耕與城市耕種)
「『源』來你影響我」(可持續能源)
「鯉魚躍龍門」(社區歷史及文化傳承)
「小水點遊歷記」(資源再生與重用)

街坊帶路將在未來與香港公平貿易聯盟研究把導賞團內容虛擬實境化的可行性,讓大眾可以更多方式參與和體驗導賞。

【A Successful Collaboration between Community Tourism, Fair Trade and Environmental Sustainability】

We are grateful to have the chance to provide community tour guide training in the one-year program “環保基金 — — 石縫中的公平永續生機” organized by Fair Trade Hong Kong in 2022. This is a project to promote and support local environmental sustainability by training the cross-generational stakeholders in the community to design and execute five original community tours, focusing on (a) regenerative agriculture and urban farming, (b) sustainable energy, © local community history and cultural heritage, (d) resource recycling and reuse, and (e) comparison of sustainable designs of traditional and modern buildings, respectively.

The closing ceremony was held last Wednesday (11th) to celebrate the success of the program after 25 public tours were finished in total! As one of the certificate presenters, I enjoyed very much the sharing from our cross-generational participants in the ceremony. Knowing how the two age groups have connected, communicated and built incredible partnerships throughout the process besides what they learnt about fairness and sustainability, has confirmed once again the significant impacts this interesting combination of community tourism, fair trade and environmental sustainability has made.

In the coming future, Kaifong Tour will continue to work with Fair Trade Hong Kong to explore the application of virtual reality in these five tours. We are looking forward to providing all sorts of in-depth travelling experiences for you!
