As part of the government’s “Conserving Central” initiative, PMQ’s two-year revitalization project will be ready in June. PMQ will partner with AllRightsReserved to bring the “1600 Pandas World Tour in Hong Kong: Creativity Meets Conservation” for the first time and to celebrate PMQ’s grand opening. 1600 Pandas will grace more than 10 Hong Kong landmarks and help promote the city’s creative industry by fostering an interactive, imaginative and sustainable environment where man and nature can coexist. Traveled around the world and heading to Hong Kong for the first time After ruling France, the Netherlands, Italy, Switzerland, Germany, Taiwan and nearly 100 exhibitions, the 1600 pandas will land in Hong Kong for the first time. This worldwide tour originated in 2008 by WWF and acclaimed French artist Paulo Grangeon, who crafted 1600 pandas — the number of existing pandas left on Earth — in various sizes with recycled materials in the form of papier-mâché. In June, the 1600 visiting pandas will come in six different shapes and sizes. Paulo Grangeon will specially create four more one-of-a-kind papier-mâché versions for his visit to Hong Kong. Face-to-face interaction with Hong Kongers across various districts The furry animals will leave their footprints on Hong Kong Island, Kowloon, the New Territories and even the outlying islands, taking residence at Hong Kong International Airport, the giant Tian Tan Buddha, Tsing Ma Bridge, Shatin Racecourse, the Hong Kong Coliseum, the Clock Tower at Hong Kong Cultural Centre Piazza and Victoria Park, as well as visiting their buddies Ying Ying, Le Le, An An and Jia Jia at Ocean Park. More stopovers will be disclosed soon. The pandas will get up-front and personal with Hong Kong citizens at every stop to promote conservation and reinforce the importance of sustainable development. Pandas will play host to PMQ’s exhibition opening ceremony The finale of “1600 Pandas World Tour in Hong Kong: Creativity Meets Conservation” will take place at PMQ’s headquarters on Aberdeen Street in Central, otherwise known as the urban development and creativity hub. The 1600 pandas will also host the opening ceremony for PMQ’s exhibition activities, to spread the gospel of conservation and sustainable development. Funds raised in the project will be donated to WWF-Hong Kong for conservation and education work. In addition, Hongkong Land – as the project’s Community Creativity & Culture Partner – will bring to the public a unique opportunity to create and spread conservation messages.
