What Is The Cathay Pacific International Wilderness Experience?


Cathay Pacific is committed to the communities we serve and to Hong Kong. We accept our responsibility towards the environment and are very aware that its future depends on the young people who are going to be the decision-makers of the future.

It is in this spirit that Cathay Pacific has sponsored several hundred specially selected young people to participate in the Cathay Pacific International Wilderness Experience since 1994.


This year could be your turn!

Should you be selected, Cathay Pacific will take you to Johannesburg, South Africa, where you will join your South African counterparts for an experience of a lifetime.

There you will have the unique opportunity to make friends with delegates from other countries with cultures very different from your own. You will be exposed to the natural, unspoiled environment and will begin to understand the impact that man has made on the delicate ecological balance of the earth. Through this experience it is hoped that you will take home the messages learnt and apply them in your own life and home country.

The Cathay Pacific International Wilderness Experience widens the horizons and expands the world view of the young people who have taken part. If you would like to join us on this voyage of discovery, if you are keen to raise your self-awareness and self-confidence, if you would like to act as an "Ambassador" for your country, then we invite you to apply right away.

“We can work together for a better world with men and women of goodwill, those who radiate the intrinsic goodness of humankind.”
