Board the Greenpeace ship this weekend

Act quick if you want to get on "Rainbow Warrior"


Greenpeace Thailand offers a rare opportunity for eco-conscious folks to experience a free tour of its Rainbow Warrior ship and more for free this weekend. The hitch is that you'll have to be at Suang Kong Beach in the Chana district of Songkhla.

Created for activities such as environmental protests and scientific excursions, the ship will hold activities this weekend abroad and on the beach as part of the Rainbow Warrior Ship Tour 2024: Ocean Justice. 

On the beach, there will be sculptures in the likeness of marine creatures created by Phuket's eco-artist Prasopsuk Lerdviriyapiti. She's known for creating artwork from marine debris to raise awareness of the impact of waste pollution on the oceans. Illustrator Sahred Toy, whose real name is Aruk "Tod" Ornvilai, will present a protest banner painting. Learn more about Chana's ocean through the Japanese fish printmaking technique called gyotaku. Join a workshop to create a keychain from marine debris with Plank.tonic and Tanntalay⁣ or create sangko, a fish habitat made from coconut parts.  

On the boat, experience a people's museum where you can have a conversation with people who campaign for oceans. Learn about the history of Rainbow Warrior and Greenpeace campaigns. Last but not least is an immersive exhibition where you can experience the beauty of the marine ecosystem sans the wetsuit. 

All of these take place this weekend, June 22-23, at Suang Kong Beach. Must register for a ship tour in advance at Greenpeace Thailand's Facebook page.
