Meet Our Trustees At CCET
Susan Li was born and educated in Hong Kong. After graduating from Sir Robert Black College of Education, she was a teacher until she immigrated into New Zealand in 1999.
In 2007, she started doing morning exercises with a group of Chinese elderly at Melville Park in Epsom. Seeing the need of the Chinese elderly to have more social activities and to integrate into the mainstream, Epsom Chinese Association(ECA) was formed. Susan has been the Chairperson of Epsom Chinese Association ever since. She organises seminars on health, safety, conservation and other information. ECA has regular meetings twice a week when members enjoy activities like singing and dancing.
During the past few years, CCET’s chairperson, Estella has come to ECA’s meetings several times to give talks on protecting our environment, composting, migration of birds and exploring Antarctica. She has also led the members of ECA on several trips to learn about Kauri Die Back, weeds and also took ECA’s members to visit VISY, Auckland’s recycling plant. ECA’s members have actively taken part in the activities of Chinese Conservation Education Trust, like the Repair Café and tree planting days. After learning the importance of protecting our planet earth, Susan feels strongly about supporting the invaluable work that CCET does and is eager to help more Chinese to do their share to protect our environment.
