Steven Chang was a WAGES Volunteer, as Green Economy Advisor, from 2017 to 2018. In his role, he developed training modules and environmentally relevant material for the project. He also developed sector-specific toolkits for palm oil, rice and cassava that are now integrated into WAGES trainings on green economy and environmental sustainability. Steven believes that with volunteering it is important to embrace the unknown and make the most of the opportunities available, whether it be in terms of food, travel, or other experiences. It is also important to take a step back to observe, be patient and to allow time for the transition process.
