Jane Poon - 2022-23 ITSF YAC Member

By Danny Harrington, MD ITS Education Asia


Jane is an award-winning social entrepreneur with a passion for design, sustainability, and innovation. As one of the 16 UNITAR Youth Ambassadors representing the Asia Pacific region, she works closely with skilled youth advocates in furthering the UN Sustainable Development Goals. In 2021, Jane founded the student-led initiative ProjectProvision to mitigate toxic consumerism in Hong Kong, which has since been featured at Cyberport, Stanford University, RTHK, and the Hong SDG Summit 2022. To further aid environmental wellbeing worldwide, she has embarked on a series of projects, such as running an accessory upcycling business and developing a bioplastic material made from food waste. Last but not least, she is passionate in public speaking, and has spoken at events held by TEDx, the Applied Science and Technology Research Institute, and the Social Enterprise World Forum among others.

As a member of the ITS Youth Advisory Committee, Jane has been involved in planning exciting events for the changemaker community in Hong Kong. She is deeply passionate about youth activism and hence wishes to empower teenagers to utilize their voices towards social change. She looks forward to working with the YAC members in holding more exciting initiatives this year!
