Flow with Nature: Youth Action Project
© WWF-Hong Kong

Today’s younger generations face many challenges in academics, personal development, relationships with their family and friends, and social circumstances – all of which may become sources of stress and negativity. A growing body of research points to the beneficial effects of exposure to nature on health, healing and stress reduction.

In July 2021, WWF-Hong Kong launched the “Flow with Nature” youth action project, thanks to the generous support of The Robert H. N. Ho Family Foundation Hong Kong. This project seeks to enhance collective and individual well-being by reconnecting young people with nature through various activities and training workshops. While practicing a sustainable lifestyle and promoting nature conservation, young people can experience a state of “flow” – full immersion in nature that gives meaning to their lives. Supported by the City University of Hong Kong’s Positive Education Laboratory, the project also includes elements of positive psychology, helping to inspire young people to discover their strengths and potential.

In the first phase, young people build experiential and emotional connections with nature by participating in outdoor activities. They are then empowered to become environmental change agents, unleashing their potential and creativity through self-led projects.
