WildChina > WildChina Explorer Grant > Li Bo Returns to the WildChina Explorer Grant Judge Panel

With less than one month to go before the deadline for 2014 WildChina Explorer Grant applications, we are excited to announce the return of Li Bo to the WEG judge panel. 

Li Bo has spent the better part of his adult life working with NGOs to advocate for social and environmental justice, tackling issues such as poverty alleviation, natural resource management, community-based tourism, biodiversity conservation, and the protection of indigenous culture.

As the director of Friends of Nature – China’s oldest NGO – Li Bo has dedicated himself to promoting awareness and calling for action in response to the challenges faced by his native landscape. One of the most important aspects of this work has been to generate the kind of public interest needed to spur community participation in these pressing issues. Friends of Nature has done this by fostering the development of a larger network of grassroots organizations that share the common goal of preserving China’s natural and cultural environment for future generations.

Outside of his work with Friends of Nature, Li Bo maintains a busy schedule. In addition to working part-time with the Stockholm Environmental Institute-Asia, he also works as a research associate at the Center for Human and Economic Development Studies at Peking University and as an adjunct researcher of environmental justice at Zhongnan University of Economics and Law in Wuhan. This will be the third consecutive year that Li Bo has brought his expertise to the WildChina Explorer Grant judge panel. We are proud to welcome him back!
