WWF (World Wide Fund for Nature) is the world’s leading independent conservation organization that originated in Switzerland in 1961 and is currently operational in more than 100 countries across six continents. WWF Nepal was first initiated in 1961, with a Rhino Conservation program. To keep up with the evolving face of conservation and environmental movement, WWF Nepal’s focus progressed from its localized efforts in conservation of single species in the 1960s, integrated conservation and development approach in the 1990s, to a new horizon of landscape-level conservation encompassing national, regional and global scales of complexity in early 2000s.

As Eco Impact partner in Idea Studio, WWF Nepal’s role is to encourage the next generation to opt for green economies and pathways. Our dependency on non-renewable sources of energy, an inefficient food, and waste management system, and over-exploitation of natural resources are causing permanent damage to our planet as we know it. Through Idea Studio, we hope to bring continuity to our ‘Greenovation’ program and support green entrepreneurs to take their ideas into action.
