Asian Games Village initiative rewards residents for their low-carbon habits
Among the numerous activities offered within the Hangzhou Asian Games Village, a low-carbon account project stands out as a top choice for athletes, team officials, technical staff, and media personnel.
At bus stops, various venues, shops, and beyond, guests can spot a distinctive QR code. With a simple scan using smartphone, they can easily complete the registration process and obtain their personalized "low-carbon account".
"The 'low-carbon account' is an online platform established by the Hangzhou Asian Games Village to promote and champion the principles of low-carbon living, thriftiness and environmental conservation," explained Chen Chong from the service office of the Hangzhou Asian Games Village operations management center.
Through this platform, residents can actively participate in various low-carbon activities hosted within the village by completing interactive tasks, Chen said.
"By choosing eco-friendly and low-carbon options for accommodation, transportation, dining and shopping, they can accumulate low-carbon points, which can be exchanged for a variety of rewards, including badges, carbon-neutral plush toys, recycled material shopping bags, sunblock clothing and more," he further explained.
It's not that difficult to gain points — by participating in the low-carbon pledge on the cloud, users can easily get 50 points, and by taking the low-carbon classes on the cloud earns 3 points each time — virtually every aspect of daily life within the village offers opportunities to choose a more low-carbon, eco-friendly approach and accumulate low-carbon points.
