Deloitte Thailand has teamed up with leading social enterprise Environmental Education Centre Thailand (EEC Thailand) to create a series of educational programmes that will raise public awareness of environmental issues.
Volunteers who took part in the Kod Pa Kod Talay initiative worked with leading sustainability experts, as well as marginalised communities, inspiring environmental consciousness and activism.
Initially conceived as a series of activities across five locations in Thailand, where our people would engage with up to 2,000 local students and community members per location, the plan had to change when COVID-19 struck and lockdowns commenced.
Undeterred, the team changed formats and created a series of five video documentaries instead. The documentaries address a wide range of issues, including pollution in Bangkok, biodiversity loss caused by forest fires in Thailand’s northern region of Chiang Mai, and how the country’s fruit capital, Chantaburi, is being adversely affected by climate change. The team also focused on the ecologically diverse forests of Hala-Bala, a wildlife sanctuary in southern Thailand dubbed ‘the Amazon of ASEAN’.
