WWF-Hong Kong

WWF One Planet Education Programme


Background of Co-organiser


The education mission of WWF-Hong Kong is to create conservation and sustainability advocates across all generations through fun, engaging real-life experiences. All of our education activities fall under the “One Planet Education Programme” (OPEP), primarily targeting at primary and secondary school students, as well as youths and the greater community. 

We aim to inspire and empower people with the knowledge and skills that will enable society to conserve nature, fast-track the development of renewable energy, and adopt sustainable consumption and trade practices.

WWF organises an extensive and comprehensive range of educational programmes aimed at students, youths and teachers, as well as the general public, our corporate partners and other stakeholders from around the region.




  • Student interns will understand and experience the working environment as an environmental educator and learn about the potential job opportunities with NGOs.
  • Provide opportunities for student interns to experience outdoor ESD (Education for Sustainable Development) programmes and learn the skills of leading ESD programmes by joining the centre-based school visits in different centres during June and July.
  • By preparing and developing different kinds of education materials, students will learn how to design and develop WWF education programmes, training workshops and events etc.
