She is also a Board Member of the Finance Branch of Shanghai Overseas Scholar Association. Huan has been a China Member of the CEC Committee of International Union of Conservation Network (IUCN). Huan has 18 years of experience in working with international projects and international organizations such as DFID, UNDP, IFC, FCO, UNEP and WWF. She has been invited as an expert in low carbon communities by Shanghai Municipal Government. She has proven expertise to formulate, manage and deliver thematic projects on sustainable development, microfinance, poverty alleviation, corporate social responsibility (CSR), public-private partnership, SME Development, green financing in China, environmental protection, ecosystem services and climate policies. Huan had been working on the PwC London-managed Sino-UK State Owned Enterprise Restructuring and Enterprise Development (SOERED) Programme funded by DFID from 2000-04 before she went to Cambridge University to pursue her Master Degree in Development Studies. Her work in this Sino-UK programme was mainly on building an enabling business environment for SME development and SME financing in Sichuan Province and in Liaoning Province while trying to mainstream CSR to local SMEs. Her M.Phil Degree Dissertation in the University of Cambridge was the study about the SME development in Western China versus to developed coastal areas and the rest of the world. In 2016, she founded a native environmental NGO called Shanghai Green Light-Year Environmental Service Center promoting sustainable lifestyles in urban and rural communities in China. Her new experience enabled her to get to know many start-ups and environmental SMEs working in sustainability. Her NGO work has earned her the “Social Impact Award” under “2017 Study UK Alumni Award” by British Council. Huan and her NGO have been reported by more than 13 international media from 7 countries and dozens of mainstream domestic media.

Her home has received more than 6000 visitors from around the world since 2015 and she has trained 21 kids as her “little volunteer explainers” from her own community. About Green Light Year: Green Light-Year (GLY), known as a Chinese native NGO dedicated to Education for Sustainable Development (ESD), is a private non-enterprise public welfare organization officially registered in Shanghai Minhang District Civil Affairs Bureau in March 2016. In the past six years since its inception, GLY has been exploring the promotion and practicing of ESD concepts at three levels: cognition, social emotion and behavior change. We target Chinese teenagers and youth, and engage them to better understand and implement the Sustainable Development Goals by promoting green lifestyles and sustainable consumption. Within these 17 criteria, we focus on cultivating eight core qualities for young people to meet challenges in the 21st century. Our mission is to make the public enjoy practicing SDGs and to become China’s leading ESD organization.
