The BEN Team

Director BEN. UK
Judy Ling Wong FRSA. OBE. UK Office. Llanberis

Judy Ling Wong is the UK Director of Black Environment Network, an organisation with an international reputation as the pioneer in the field of ethnic participation in the built and natural environment. BEN works across diverse sectors, integrating social, cultural and environmental concerns. Current themes include the natural conservation, urban design, history and heritage, health, access to the outdoors and urban green spaces.

Judy is a major voice on policy towards social inclusion. Her contribution includes membership of the DCMS Historic Environment Executive Committee, ODPM Urban Green Spaces Task Force, National Trust Council, and the IUCN/WCPA Task Force for Cities and Protected Areas.

She has worked extensively in various sectors - in the arts, in psychotherapy and in community involvement. This multiple background means that she is uniquely place to take forward the development of an integrated approach to environmental participation, bringing together different fields and sharing cultural visions. She was made a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts in 1997 in recognition of her contribution to contemporary environmental thinking. In June 2000 she was appointed an Officer of the Order of the British Empire OBE as part of the Queen’s Birthday Honours, in recognition of her outstanding contribution to ethnic environmental participation. In 2003, she was made Honorary Fellow of the Chartered Institution for Water and Environmental Management. In 2005, she was awarded an Honorary Doctorate by the University of Gloucester.
