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.

KAWS’s creative output traverses the worlds of art, fashion and design. Continuing in the tradition of pop art and central to his practice, this sculpture is an exploration of humanity, appearing to be downcast and isolated. Portrayed in a larger-than-life size, in a hunched position, and with its head tilted towards the ground, WHAT PARTY acts as a reminder of the increasingly toxic nature of public discourse and rise of disillusionment in our times. He prompts us to combat underlying hatred and fear in society and to live with compassion. The work shows KAWS's formal agility as an artist, accompanied by his underlying wit, irreverence and affection.
KAWS (Brian Donnelly, b. 1974, US) is a contemporary artist who lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. His prolific body of influential work straddles the worlds of art and design to include paintings, murals, large-scale sculptures, street art, graphic and production design. Drawing inspiration from pop-culture animations, he creates with a sophisticated humour and thoughtful interplay with consumer products and collaborates with global brands. KAWS has had solo exhibitions at National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne (2019); Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth (2016); and Contemporary Art Museum of St. Louis (2017). His work is in the collection of Brooklyn Museum, New York and High Museum of Art, Atlanta, among others.
