Objective

The goal of the Nature Education Volunteer Training Programme is to equip people who want to make contributions to environmental education at KFBG.

 

Overview

We provide a series of experiential activities and natural walks, developed by Kadoorie Farm and Botanic Garden (KFBG) education specialists. In this training programme, participants will gain environmental knowledge, and interpretation and facilitation skills. In addition, they will have the opportunity to participate in a wide range of mindfulness and art activities to increase well-being from a holistic perspective.
