    National Security Education Day; Fukushima waste water

    On Thursday's Backchat, National Security Education Day and Fukushima waste water.
    The government has made April 15th National Security Education Day. The day will also mark the launch of the first National Security Education Day events organised by the Committee for Safeguarding National Security of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region.
    The event, with the theme of Uphold National Security × Safeguard Our Home - Improve Electoral System, Ensure Patriots Administering Hong Kong, aims to raise Hong Kong residents’ awareness on national security, create a positive atmosphere of national security, enhance the capacity to fend off national security risks, deepen understanding of the National Constitution, the Basic Law and national security, and foster national identity.
    There will be an opening ceremony and seminar, community and school mosaic wall activities as well as open days for academies of disciplined services and a national security exhibition.
    Will these activities raise the awareness of National Security? Why there's a need to educate the younger generations on the importance of National Security?
    From 9:15am-9:30am we'll be discussing Japan's plans to release into the sea more than 1 million tonnes of contaminated water from the destroyed Fukushima nuclear station.

    Martin Williams Founder, Hong Kong Outdoors.
    Paul Zimmerman, CEO of Designing Hong Kong, Southern District Councillor
    On Wednesday's Backchat, Covid strains, and FS budget on country parks.
    How concerned should we be about the variants of SARS-CoV-2? Do vaccines protect against them? Are
    they more deadly, or faster spreading? How many are in Hong Kong, and is it possible to keep them out?
    We'll be joined by a pathologist and a clinical microbiologist to answer your questions.
    After 9, in his budget the FS proposed a half a billion dollar spend on country parks, adding
    lookout points, treetop adventure and glamping sites, improving toilet facilities and picnic and
    barbecue sites and revitalising some wartime relics by converting them into open museums.
    And another $55 million to enhance ten popular hiking trails that have tourist potential. Where
    and how would you spend the money?
