Empowering tertiary-school students to become conservation leaders and environmental spokespersons, WWF-Hong Kong has been running the One Planet Youth Leadership Training Programme since October 2017. The one-year programme comprises 40 hours of training workshops and hands-on experience in conservation and education actions, giving participants a deeper understanding of different environmental issues and nature conservation.

Programme Goals


Through workshops, field trips and hands-on experience, participants will:
 
  • Understand local and global environmental issues
  • Participate in WWF’s conservation and education work
  • Be empowered to practice and promote sustainable living in their daily lives
  • Organise an environmental campaign and demonstrate essential leadership competencies in planning and implementing the project

2019-2020 Group Projects

To apply the knowledge and skills acquired in the workshops, participants are required to initiate, plan and implement a conservation project based on their interest in local communities with support from WWF. The conservation projects organised by our 2019-2020 participants covered five environmental topics: local biodiversity, sustainable seafood, sustainable fashion, food mileage and land use in Hong Kong. Read about the individual projects in the “One Planet Youth Leaders – Group Project Abstract” and see how these young people work to transform their conservation dreams into reality!
