LILY ZHAO WEI
FOUNDER OF IDEAS CAMP
FOUNDER OF IDEAS YOUTH DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM
Lily has been devoting herself to social education practice and education innovation in China. As one of the very first innovators who introduced the international camp education system to China, Lily aims to foster the integration of family education, school education and social change through camp education.
In 2008, Lily started Little Angel Public Welfare Foundation (renamed as IDEAS Youth Development Foundation) after seeing her own son benefiting from taking part in community service and working on his own projects.
In 2009, A-Action, a public welfare project that advocates for service learning, became an incubation platform for teenagers to experience service learning and practice social innovation.
In 2012, the IDEAS Camp Education Research Center was established.
