Inspired by the vision of Adrian Cheng, Founder of the K11 Group, to build a Silicon Valley of Culture in which to incubate creative talents and propagate a culture of sustainability, Nature Discovery Park is Hong Kong’s first urban biodiversity museum and sustainability-themed education park. The Park offers guided green tours to raise awareness of Hong Kong’s ecological importance and cultural heritage, workshops and an urban farming experience to promote a sustainable lifestyle, events that echo the UN Sustainable Development Goals and a venue for sustainable brands and like-minded individuals to gather.
Founded by renowned primatologist Dr. Jane Goodall, the Jane Goodall Institute is a global nonprofit dedicated to wildlife research, education and conservation. The primary focus of the Jane Goodall Institute Hong Kong office is “Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots”, an education program which empowers young people to care for the environment, the community and animals through action.

The Glorious Heritage
Presented by K11 Craft & Guild Foundation, The Glorious Heritage celebrates the age-old craftsmanship of Baibaoqian and Luodian inlay art. With antique masterpieces and reinterpreted craftwork by contemporary artisans and designers, the exhibition tells the story of the long-forgotten inlay art and how the endangered artistry can be innovatively adapted to modern living, which K11 MUSEA offers. The iridescent decorations of the inlay exhibits provide a shimmering kaleidoscope of colours against the gleaming backdrop of Gold Ball at K11 MUSEA.
Dating back to late Ming dynasty 400 years ago, Baibaoqian refers to the intricate wood inlay work comprised of variegated semi-precious materials. Each inlay component is skilfully carved separately before the pieces are assembled together to make up a pictorial image rich in colour, texture and depth.
With over 1,000 years of history dating back to the Tang dynasty, Luodian is a distinctive decorative method featuring Mother-of-Pearl inlay techniques. Luo refers to the texture of the inlay material while Dian refers to the decorative process.
Online Eco-leadership Programme
Do you know how many insect species live in Hong Kong? 10,000, 20,000 or 30,000? No one knows the exact number, but for sure, they exceed any other groups of animals or plants in terms of diversity. Another certainty is the paramount role that insects play in the functioning and health of ecosystems, even if these roles are often underappreciated or even misunderstood by most people.
Nature Discovery Park and the School of Biological Sciences of The University of Hong Kong co-developed the online eco-leadership programme, which aims to introduce the ecological importance of biodiversity and participants will learn about the direct resources insects provide to human, as well as the influence they have in science and art.
