Nature Works Hong Kong: Environmental Innovation and Leadership Program

Posted by Peter MUIR


natureworksThe Nature Conservancy (TNC), an international environmental non-profit organization founded in 1951, is looking for students to join its “Nature Works HK: Environmental Innovation and Leadership Program”.

The unique program will help Hong Kong build the next generation of environmental leaders ready to action on their ideas. There will be a competitive recruitment process across Hong Kong to recruit students who are passionate about the environment, dedicated to making a difference, and able to take advantage of the incredible opportunities offered in this program. Students from all over Hong Kong (aged 14 – 17) and from all different ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds can take part. There will be no costs to the students or to the school and the program will be held outside of school hours.

There are two main benefits for the students:
1. Students will receive leadership training normally accessible only to university students or people in the work force. They will learn various skills including presentation, communication, collaboration, goal-setting, project management, dealing with adversity and leadership development.
2. Students will get the opportunity to translate their passion for environmental issues into real-world conservation projects in their communities and schools, with the support and guidance of volunteer advisors from corporations across Hong Kong.
