The Fantasy Journey of H-Garden exhibition is organized by the China Welfare Institute, Lego Group and the Soong Ching Ling Cultural Space to present the flora and fauna of the city and inspire children to participate in the protection of biodiversity.

China, one of the most biologically diverse countries in the world, was among the first countries to become party to the Convention on Biological Diversity, which entered into force in 1993.

In the exhibit, children are required to complete five tasks in four sections to learn about plants, animals, insects and the environment in urban habitats and use Lego bricks to create habitat for a species.

After completing the tasks, they can get a manual, in which they can learn about local communities with Gardening for Habitat projects. The program was started by The Nature Conservancy as nature-based solutions to help cities improve biodiversity and ecosystems and mitigate the urban heat island effect to make cities more resilient in the face of challenges. posed by climate change.
