Partnership with a number of Government bodies, sees local community investment in Ocean education program
Mubadala Petroleum, the Abu Dhabi headquartered international energy company, has collaborated with the National Security Council and the Office of the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Education to support education initiatives focused on natural resources and marine ecosystems.
The collaboration will see Mubadala Petroleum (Thailand) Limited provide teaching resources for educational institutions in the eastern provinces of Thailand. The materials are specifically designed to follow the school curriculum on the Country’s sea territory, natural ocean resources and national maritime history.
Working with the Office of the National Security Council and the Office of the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Education, led by Admiral Jumpol Lumpiganon, and the National Maritime Interest Committee, the collaboration saw Mubadala Petroleum (Thailand) Limited work with the Regional Education Office No.8, Chon Buri province to deliver these resources.
Rashed Alblooshi, Country President of Mubadala Petroleum (Thailand) Limited commented that: “We are committed to supporting the local communities we operate in, with education and environment having been key pillars of our activities since day one. It is therefore an honour to help raise awareness of the ocean among young people and we look forward to initiating new projects to support sustainable development for Thai communities in the near future.”
The curriculum covered through this project includes subject matter on Thailand’s sea territory, natural marine resources and wider national maritime interests. It will be taught in 22 coastal provinces, with students reporting greater understanding of ocean-related issues and a heightened motivation to work on marine conservation issues.
