Highlands School sixth form student Alex White has made his first speech in the House of Lords as a result of winning a prestigious national competition run by the Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office. The prizes were awarded there earlier this week.

This Competition invited pupils to conduct research on the strengths of Hong Kong to develop itself as a Smart City, and to come up with a proposed project for Hong Kong to further integrate technology to improve the quality of living. His prize is an amazing two weeks in Hong Kong this summer, including attending a course at the Chinese University of Hong Kong.

Alex’s project embraced innovative and creative ideas which drew reference from the ‘Smart City’ initiatives of London and focused on how Honk Kong and London could collaborate in achieving its aims. Alex’s winning submission focused on the “construction of an ecological ‘cycle highway’ in Hong Kong, compatible with the Octopus Card system already in place. To limit the carbon footprint of this project, and to further help improve the air quality in Hong Kong, the highway shall incorporate the ideas behind London’s Garden Bridge programme, in order to reduce carbon dioxide levels in the city and provide a habitat for local wildlife.”

Well done Alex!!
