Hi, I’m Hanchen. I study Economics as an undergraduate, with an ambition to study environmental and climate change economics and eventually work in sustainability consulting. As with the other members of the Programmes team, we help to curate the Forum’s content and engage with speakers!
Why did you want to part of the youth forum organisation committee?
I’m trying to reduce the impact of my lifestyle on the environment on a personal level, and having seen some success in that, would like to advocate for the same among my peers. I strongly believe in bottom-up and community-driven initiatives to build a more sustainable society.
Why do you think the involvement of youth in the resolution of sustainability issues is essential for success?
We’re the ones that will have to live with the consequences of our decisions, and the ones with the responsibility to pass the world on to the next generation in a better state. So it’s our obligation to do it well!
Motto : Driving bottom-up and community-driven initiatives, for a more sustainable society!
