WWF Climateer Ambassador

WWF Climateer Ambassador

WWF’s Climateers programme pushes individuals and organisations to take action to tackle climate change in Hong Kong. Following the success of last year’s Climateers Ambassadors Experiential Programme, the conservation body is inviting Hongkongers who live in specific districts to join forces and work towards a low carbon community. We would like Junior Reporters to be involved in this important project and keep other Young Post readers informed of what they experience and learn.

By joining it you will be entitled to informative seminars and workshops to learn about ways to combat climate change and hear from inspirational speakers on how they live to protect the environment. We have four places for our Junior Reporters to attend this programme, which starts in January and ends in March.
