Our History

Future Generations China was founded in 1989 when it created the Qomolangma National Nature Preserve (QNNP) in the Tibetan Himalayas around Mt. Everest, a total size of 36,000 square kilometers. This protected nature area is home to the world’s tallest mountains and immense biodiversity.

Initially focused on conservation projects in Tibet, our programs have since grown to extend the conservation focus to include community-based conservation, community development, and protected area management all over China.

In 2007, Future Generations China became an officially registered NGO in Hong Kong, then gaining officially recognition in Beijing in 2010.

Our programs also include environmental education through initiatives such as the Green Long March and sustainable development projects in rural China.
