Nature Works leadership programme

Posted by admin

Nature ConservancyThe ESF Secondary Schools, in collaboration with The Nature Conservancy (TNC) and The Edge Learning Center and Seeds Training, is delighted to offer students with an interest in conservation issues an opportunity to take part in the Nature Works Hong Kong program.   The goal of the program is to equip motivated students with the skills, mindset and opportunity necessary for them to turn their passion for the environment into tangible action.

The program begins with a two-day camp in Hong Kong on the 15th and 16th of October.  This camp introduces students to the three conservation themes of the program – Air, Water and Food – and engages students in a range of activities designed to develop their skills in leadership, communication, collaboration, goal-setting, and more.   Student teams then have one month to develop an action plan around conservation in their own schools. They’ll have access to experts across a range of professions and fields to help them craft their plan and build a presentation of these plans for TNC’s Asia Pacific Council, a group of business and conservation leaders from across the region.   With seed funding from the Council, student teams then have 4 months to turn their plans into reality, culminating in a final presentation of their work to the ESF community in March 2014.

The application process is open to all students from Year 10-13 at ESF Secondary Schools.   Students who are interested in exploring careers in environmental conservation, or those who are just passionate about the environment, are encouraged to apply.  Applications are due Wednesday, 25 September with successful applicants being notified Friday, 27 September.
