Education

They are the people who will inherit the future. As such, the next generation will take responsibility for the protection of the world’s environment. With new types of media and all manner of new technology now readily available, there are more ways than ever to teach the young people of today how to live sustainably and reduce their footprint, and give them real-world ecological experience.

WWF organizes an extensive range of educational programmes. We work to educate today’s youth in line with Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) programme objectives to promote stronger commitment from the community for conservation through fun, engagement and real life experience.

Schools and Outreach Education Programmes

It is never too early nor too late to learn about sustainable living and the conservation issues that affect us all. WWF's education programmes are tailor-made for school students and teachers. Most of the programmes are conducted at our "outdoor classrooms" located at important ecological sites across Hong Kong including Mai Po, Hoi Ha Wan and Island House in Tai Po, while indoor thematic programmes take place at school campuses.

Community Programmes

Harnessing the power of the community is an effective way to spread conservation messages. WWF's community programmes lay the foundations for a long-term commitment to sustainable living and environmental protection, through engaging community centres, uniform groups and tertiary institutes.
