Ms. Woo is experienced in conservation advocacy and environmental monitoring in Hong Kong with over a decade of dedicated work in environmental NGOs. She actively engages with government departments and stakeholders providing ecological advice on various projects, works and management practices, and has published three reports assessing Hong Kong’s progress in biodiversity conservation under the Convention on Biological Diversity. Current environmental challenges are often complex and interconnected, she is particularly in cross-sector collaboration to seek practical solutions for nature conservation and benefits to the local community.

My Sustainability Goals for 2024:

  • Raise awareness of the importance of our natural environment among all people in Hong Kong, no matter in what industry or field they are.
  • Gain more support from different sectors nature conservation projects, especially for agriculture/aquaculture-related, and further develop conservation projects to be more socially, economically and ecologically sustainable.
  • Assist Hong Kong to become a more eco-friendly city, which can in turn align with the national policy of Ecological Civilization and help fulfil mainland China’s obligation under the Convention on Biological Diversity.
