GURU COVER STORY
Ademonstration against a controversial dam project in Mae Wong National Park will start at Bangkok Art and Culture Centre tomorrow. The dam plan has been criticised for its lack of transparency, questionable effi ciency in preventing future fl ooding and its threat to irreplaceable trees and wildlife. To deputy PM Plodprasob Suraswadi, forests can be regrown and wildlife bred, but an online petition against the project on Change.org has garnered over 113,401 signatures, becoming the biggest campaign of its kind in Asia (who knew that Thais are such environmentalists?!).
This week we rally your inner activist with a round-up of green groups you may want to get behind, figures regarding the state of the Thai environment, and more ways to be eco-friendly.
You don't have to look too deeply into Bangkok to find green causes. Here's our selection of groups that support a greener life. Check them out to keep yourself posted on their upcoming activities.
