  • TrailWatch

    The WYNG Foundation’s very own TrailWatch is a mobile application and online community that enables individuals, groups and institutions to track their hikes, share their hiking experiences with other users and help surveil the conditions of Hong Kong’s country parks.

  • Basel Action Network (BAN),
    United States

    BAN is on a mission to champion global environmental health and justice by ending toxic trade: one of its flagship projects is the “E-Trash Transparency Project”, which aims to gather real data on where electronic waste ends up. GPS-based tracking devices are fitted onto e-waste, which include old computers, printers and monitors. Past projects by BAN show that more than 50% of their tracked e-waste ended up in Hong Kong. In 2017, the WYNG Foundation enabled BAN to fit another 100 GPS-based tracking devices onto e-waste found in the US and Canada.

  • The Clean Air Network

    Air pollution is Hong Kong’s biggest public health crisis: it kills an average of three people a day. Yet, most citizens are not aware of the extent of the impact air pollution has on their health. The CAN strives to change this by dedicating itself and all its resources to educating citizens across different levels of society on the importance of keeping air pollution to a minimum. The WYNG Foundation supports a handful of the CAN’s programmes.
