In a continuous effort to broaden its horizons and deepen its understanding of global sustainability, Li Foundation recently met with Ms. Rindy Zhang, Philanthropy Lead at WWF Singapore. The highlight of this interaction was the insightful presentation she shared with us on how the world’s largest conservation organization founded in 1961 that works in the field of wilderness preservation and the reduction of human impact on the environment has evolved over the years, expanding their areas of work beyond nature protection.
Emphasizing on the unwavering commitment to environmental conservation and sustainable development, Ms. Zhang elaborated further on the four guiding pillars that steer WWF Singapore’s schemes and programs: Climate; Sustainability and Circular Economy; Nature and Biodiversity; and Close to Home. Each of these represents a distinct facet of WWF Singapore’s approach, reflecting their holistic strategy in addressing both global and local environmental challenges.
A detailed exposition by Ms. Zhang provided LIF whose mission centers around global impact and community-centric development, a better understanding of the multifaceted challenges and opportunities in the realm of sustainability.
As the meeting concluded, both entities shared a mutual sense of respect and admiration. It left the LIF team a deeper appreciation for WWF’s dedication in creating a sustainable and harmonious coexistence between humanity and nature. This interaction laid a stepping stone for future engagements and knowledge-sharing.
