On 14 February 2017, the Yvonne L. K. Lui Trust announced its support of budding conservation talent and global change agents through a collaboration, The Lui-Walton Innovator Fellowship Programme, with Rob & Melani Walton and the internationally renowned NGO Conservation International (CI). Investing in the future, the alliance of Eastern and Western philanthropists enables a special class of leader to be supported in their endeavours to face environmental challenges that dramatically affect communities around the world.
Research based, science-led results and ideas will help educate and inform. The forward-thinking fellowship which attracts past Presidents, outstanding scientists, recognised professionals and critical thinkers, will work towards ensuring a sustainable future for mankind. A talent pool for the twenty-first century, CI’s Lui-Walton Fellows will lead new approaches to natural capital and sustainability challenges in priority geographies: Amazonia, Eastern Tropical Pacific Seascape, China-Mekong, Indonesia, Pacific Oceanscape and Sub-Saharan Africa.
