The Questions


1. Can you tell us about ‘Street Cleaner Appreciation Walks’?


Street Cleaner Appreciation Walks is a small volunteer group that envisions Hong Kong in a light where all street cleaners can be proud of the work they do and their contribution to society. Through our walks, we aim to reach out through kindness to show our appreciation to a group of Hong Kongers that are often overlooked and sometimes looked down upon by society.
