A list of 100 role models honoured for their inspiring innovations to change the world sustainably is presented in an online exhibition titled "100 Faces Of Thailand's Innovation Inspirers 3".

This virtual showcase is based on a book of the same title launched under the theme "Sustainable Innovation" by the National Innovation Agency. It compiles the stories of 100 Thais from various professional fields who have created innovations that play a role in developing society in a sustainable way.

They are categorised into three groups, Planet, People and Profit, which cover six branches in total -- environment; city networks; health and well-being; privacy, rights and equality; security and inclusiveness.

The line-up includes Panchana Vatanasathien, founder of the Rice For Doctors or Food For Fighters project that had been endorsed by the UNDP, from the Planet group; Asst Prof Dr Jiraporn Arunakul, owner of the Facebook page Leang Look Nork Baan (Parenting Outside The Home) from the People group; and Nattapon Muangtum, owner of Facebook page Kan Ta Lad Wan La Ton (EverydayMarketing.co) from the Profit group.

This project aims to inspire people to create more sustainable innovations to propel the country to be in the top 30 of the Global Innovation Index.

The outstanding innovation from Thailand recognised internationally is called "innovation for crafted living" which emphasises Thai lifestyle, identity and the structure of cultural society. Numerous examples of this can be found in the virtual exhibition. An e-book format is also available.
