About Me 有關我

DSC02017

Wilson (Wai-Yin) Cheung’s was born and raised in former British Hong Kong. His works and studies allow him to roam the globe. After encountering a number of pivotal moments in the wilderness, he strongly believes that there is deep wisdom in nature. The key to uncovering  the wilderness is curiosity, which is essential to growth. Couch-surfer, backpacker, dreamer, kayaker, caver, mountaineer, adventurer, climber, hitchhiker, skier, surfer, traveler, photographer and writer; Wilson is all of these.

Since 2011, He worked as an international mountain guide, South Pole ski guide and expedition guide in polar region over 450 field days.  The most amazing polar experience for Wilson is managing an Emperor Penguin Camp at Gould Bay, the south of Weddell sea ice, for international visitors. In each Antarctic season, he spend over 4 months in Antarctic continent and peninsular region. Antarctic almost become his home….. with his tiny tent and sleeping bag as a shelter.

Wilson studied “M.A.Transcultural European Outdoor Studies” in Europe. Cross cultural psychology is his other profession. He is interested in the relationship between culture and nature, especially in the polar region. Since 2011 he has been working as the first Asian-Hong Kong polar expedition-, ski- and mountain-guide in both the Arctic and Antarctic regions. His photographs have featured in Elizabeth Leane’s book, “South Pole – Nature and Culture”. He also has worked as an expedition leader on a number of polar scientific research projects over the years.

In his off season, he always return Hong Kong to deliver lectures and semesters about polar region, expedition behavior and cross cultural psychology in university level as well as public.

Besides his guiding jobs, he is running one non-profit making organization, Ecobus (http://ecobus.org.hk/), for reconnect the relationship between human and nature. In order to facilitate individual interaction with nature and enhance the environmental sense of belonging, Ecobus applied own eco-route-cycle philosophy, Enjoy-Care-Share during delivering a wide range of outdoor activities for community.

2011年以來,Wilson的工作為一位登山,滑雪和遠征極地嚮導超過450天。最神奇的極地體驗是

在營地古爾德灣 – 威德爾海的海冰,為國際遊客管理帝企鵝。在每個南極季節,他在南極大陸和半島地區超過4個月。南極幾乎成了他的家……在他的小帳篷,睡袋作為棲身之所。

Wilson在歐洲研究“歐洲戶外研究”。跨文化心理學是他的其他的職業。他渴望學習的景觀和環境的不同文化解讀,尤其是在極地地區。現在,他正準備對南極的文化闡釋一個博士研究。所以,請花一些時間來陪陪Wilson。他會告訴你如何在不同的文化,以您的旅途中閱讀南極洲。

除了他的指導工作,他正在運行的一個非牟利組織,Ecobus(http://ecobus.org.hk/),用於重新連接人與自然之間的關係。為了便於個人與自然的互動,增強環境意識和歸屬感,Ecobus應用於自己的生態路由循環的理念,為廣泛社區中提供戶外活動。
