PRESS RELEASE

Arlington, Va., February 14, 2017 — Today, Conservation International (CI) announced a new, multimillion-dollar fellowship initiative that joins world leaders with some of the most innovative minds in conservation. Named after its founders, CI Board members Dr. Yvonne L.K. Lui and Melani and Rob Walton, the 2017 Lui-Walton Innovators Fellowship program recognizes 15 Fellows from 11 countries with diverse backgrounds — from world leaders to first-in-class scientists and conservationists — all dedicated to saving nature and building a healthier, more productive planet.

LATEST WORKS

The Yvonne L. K. Lui Trust has supported CI-Hong Kong in its efforts to bring “Nature Is Speaking,” Conservation International’s global award-winning public awareness film campaign, to Hong Kong.

The Trust is a proud supporter of CI-Hong Kong’s inaugural Environmental Heroes Leadership Program, piloted with the Chinese International School.

OUR FRAMEWORK

The Yvonne L. K. Lui Trust focuses on science and its transmission through education. Supporting initiatives in these fields can make the biggest difference to the lives of Hong Kong’s people and our planet.

SCIENCE

Hong Kongers and humanity’s future are dependent on the health of the planet. We see the importance of supporting scientists and informing and educating the public about Conservation. We also support the greatest minds and programmes in the Hong Kong healthcare sector to provide the best medical expertise to the less fortunate amongst us.

EDUCATION

Knowledge is wealth: it alleviates poverty and has the potential to transform the world as we know it. Education, be it traditional, or creative, provides individuals with hope and opportunities. A community’s success is based on its knowledge-sharing.

Beyond education, art and culture initiatives unite people of different languages, cultures and nationalities. Art holds up a mirror to humanity and can be a catalyst for tremendous change.
