A former international NGO’s manager, Han has been committed in enhancing the Chinese seafood industry’s capacity with more scientific information and better self-organization for a greener seafood supply-chain. Han co-founded the China Ocean NGO Forum and believes that sustainability needs to be defined with respect to local culture, economics, and society. Her work has been recognized by a number of awards, including being selected for the Obama Foundation Asia-Pacific Leaders program in 2019, and in 2020 being named to the ‘Gen.T List’ – the definitive list of young leaders shaping Asia’s future – for her work promoting sustainable fisheries and aquaculture in China.
China Blue Sustainability Institute (shortened as China Blue), established in 2015, is the first domestic NGO committed to promoting sustainable fishery and aquaculture in China. It catalyzes the transformation of Chinese seafood business towards sustainability through cross-sector research and communication.
Han holds degrees in Environmental Sciences from Rutgers University and Nanjing University.
