Environmentalist Sasin Chalermlarb, biking activist Saranarat Kanjanavanit, architect Yanyong Boonlong, organic rice farmer Lalana Sri-kram and cardiologist Rungsrit Kanjanavanit will share their work, which has inspired a large number of people to do their part to save the planet, at the “Do It Better” talk, on Oct 18 from 1pm to 6pm.

Organised by Salforest, a social enterprise which promotes sustainable development, the talk will be held at Wiwattanachai Hall of the Thai Summit Building, New Phetchaburi Road. It can be reached by MRT Phetchaburi station.

Saranarat, secretary-general of Greenworld Foundation, is an avid cyclist and a driving force for Bangkok’s “car-free” day.
