Ernst Kwok

Volunteer Fundraising & Partnerships Manager
Jane Goodall Institute of Singapore

Ernst is an aspiring ESG professional developing impact reporting and placemaking initiatives while conserving heritage shophouses with Figment, a Singapore-based boutique co-living home operator. Falling into the camp of multi-hyphenates, he does not hail from a typical science academia befitting of a conservationist. Ernst holds a Diploma in Law and is pursuing his Bachelor’s in Building & Project Management and plans to further his studies in Property Law, Impact Investing & Green Finance.

Apart from his career and academic interests, Ernst volunteers with the Jane Goodall Institute of Singapore, Singapore Youth Voices for Biodiversity and multiple grassroots organisations to uplift the socio-economically disadvantaged.

He also reviews and writes recommendations for upcoming developments’ Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) and Environmental Management and Monitoring Plans (EMMPs), or appeals for aid on behalf of residents as a volunteer case officer. His dedication after-hours is driven by his dreams for a better world in the environmental, biodiversity and social fields.
