Creator, artist and public figure honored for her commitment and pioneering work in the environmental sector, we spoke to Judy Ling Wong, founder of the Black Environment Network (BEN). Judy is a major voice in policy towards social inclusion and has worked for over thirty years in environmental participation, increasing access to the environmental sector, and nature itself, within Black and ethnic minority communities. Her philosophy around engaging people in environmental action is based on giving people the opportunity to experience and enjoy nature firsthand, particularly wild nature.
