Flow Influencer - Youth Recruitment


How well is your emotional well-being? How can we boost our well-being, and even help others to improve theirs?

Studies have proven that our well-being is positively associated with our level of nature connectedness, i.e. how strongly we think and feel we are connected to nature. Hong Kong offers splendid natural scenery, however, both the level of nature connectedness and well-being index of Hong Kong people scored the lowest among 18 studied regions around the world in recent research.

WWF-Hong Kong launched the education project "Flow with Nature: Building a Thriving Flow Community" in 2024 with generous support from The Robert H.N. Ho Family Foundation Hong Kong. This project aims to improve participants' mental well-being through reconnection with nature, empower them to facilitate others to connect with nature, and ultimately influence a wider community to make positive changes to nature and people.
