Founder and Executive Director, CHANGE

VIETNAM

For the past 20 years, Hong Hoang has been working on raising public awareness and engaging communities in tackling Vietnam’s most urgent issues, including climate change, pollution, and illegal wildlife trade. She brought the youth-led climate change movement 350.org to Vietnam, which had more than 10,000 volunteers, and helped coordinate the movement in Singapore, Cambodia, Myanmar, and Thailand. Together with CHANGE, the NGO she founded, Hong mobilizes, organizes, and builds capacity for local youth groups to speak up and take action to mitigate climate change and support affected communities.
