WWF Annual Review 2017 - 4

FOREWORD

Yolanda Kakabadse
President,
WWF International

A TIME TO BE BOLD
At the beginning of 2018, I will step down as President. Even as
I look back on a fantastic eight years, I look ahead to where WWF goes
next - because we have never been more important to the planet.

I believe we now have a better
understanding of the role of WWF in
the 21st century. We have a greater
focus on the priority themes we need
to address to achieve our mission,
and have put in place an institutional
structure that can help us to deliver.
Increasingly, that means working as
an active, decentralized network,
built on trust and a shared sense of
purpose, where all regions of the planet
contribute according to their different
realities, needs and resources. It also
means working with all sectors and
societies to achieve the changes
we want and need, remembering that
together, all is possible.

WWF-INT Annual Review 2017 page 4

My greatest hope comes from all the
extraordinary people that I have met
during my time with WWF - people
who really care about their work, who
believe in the power of good ideas and
actions, and who are taking action
every day to protect and restore nature
and improve quality of life, especially
for the most vulnerable people.
Protecting the environment should
be a passion for all of us. So be
bold, never lose the courage to speak
up for what you believe is right, and
get involved!
I would like to express my
heartfelt gratitude to our outgoing
Vice-President, André Hoffmann.
André has been WWF International
Vice-President for 10 years, a board
member for 20, and a tireless
advocate for environmental issues
for close to half a century. He has
helped WWF rise to the global
conservation and sustainable
development challenges of our
age, as well as raise over US$100
million for priority conservation
programmes worldwide.

It has been a time of great change as
we seek to adapt to the challenges of
the last decades, and those to come in
the future. We must not be afraid of
change: conservation today is different
from how it was yesterday, and it will
be different again tomorrow. We cannot
be the same organization we were 60
years ago, but our dream of building
a different future, where people live
in harmony with nature, remains as
relevant as ever.
