Some travel experiences are precious, moments that create memories which last forever. During a recent vacation, as I sat on a train at a rural station gazing from the window, I had one of those moments. We were surrounded by verdant greenery on all sides, made all the more brilliant in the light of a beautiful sunset, and as the steel wheels of the train began slowly turning it felt as if the rice paddies were saying goodbye to me. Sitting opposite me was a mother and her young daughter. Their conversation provided the perfect soundtrack to those golden moments and has not faded from my memory. As we picked up speed the little girl kept up a litany of questions based on what she saw through the window. She was endearingly innocent and very curious about the world. Little girl: “Mama, what’s that tree?” Mother: “Oh.. that’s a ‘Rain Tree’. When I was little, I liked to sit in its shade and read a book.” Little girl: “And why is it there in the middle of the rice field?” Mother: “Perhaps a bird has eaten the seeds from the tree and pooped one in the rice field. When it rains, a tree grows.” Little girl: “Wow! That’s amazing!!!” Mother: “It’s nature. A tree grows tall just the way you do, my dear. Tree, mountain, and river…. everything changes naturally.” Little girl: “Is nature a part of our life?” Mother: “Certainly. Everything is subject to the laws of nature. For instance, if the weather is too hot, Mother Nature will bring the rain and wind cool us and make nice weather. It’s just like me. When you’re sick and you don’t feel good, I always take care of you to make you feel better. I do that because I love you.” Little girl: “But sometimes you smack me! Is that because you love me too?” Mother: “Of course, my dear. I do it because I love you and I want you to learn a lesson, so you won’t do it again. Mother Nature punishes us too. When people cut all the trees down, She punishes them with great floods. It’s Her way of teaching us a lesson – that we can’t treat the environment badly. So when you grow up, you must respect nature and protect it.” Little girl: “I will, mama. But I will love you ten times more than I love nature.” The conversation ended with happy hugs all round and it made me think about the myriad connections between humans and nature. We are all related, all bonded. So it is up to us to show our gratefulness and love for nature, our universal mother.

Social Enterprise (and the Environment) – A model for a better world The great man’s quote illustrates how we have been taking advantage of the world for much more than our basic needs. It also forewarns that over-consumption could eventually be our ruin. But how did we get to be such a greedy species? How did we get to the point where business profit, a fast buck, takes precedent over that which sustains us? For decades the detrimental social and ecological impact caused by a ‘get rich quick and never mind the consequences’ mindset has destroyed the very capital that, if managed right, could see us safely into the future. More and more people in business around the world acknowledge that something must be done and recognize the need for a better balance between social, environmental and commercial needs. Hence the global rise of ‘Social Enterprise’ – a growing business movement in which companies place their environmental, social and financial goals and responsibilities on a par. It cannot be denied that many of today’s social and environmental problems stem in part from dated economic policies, however well intentioned, that encourage maximum profit with little consideration for the impact on society and environment as a whole. In fact, both areas – people and nature in effect – should be regarded as capital generators, as increasing numbers of entrepreneurs are coming to realize.

Mention ‘social enterprise’ a few years ago and most people would assumed you were talking about a nonprofit organization. Today, nothing could be further from the reality. A social enterprise is basically a business organization that looks to create wealth through innovations and strategies that also help to solve social and environmental problems so as to encourage sustainable change for the good. While bullish investors might be put off by this model’s sometimes slow or low profitability, those with a strong social conscience are forging a new path to achieving their financial and moral goals, often with limited resources. Social enterprise uses the triple bottom line concept social returns, environmental wellbeing and fair profit - as a fundamental guideline for sustainable growth and corporate responsibility. These are businesses that give back to their communities and improve the quality of life by creating jobs, paying taxes, and offering goods and services that are in tune with the environment, not fighting it. The Kingdom of Thailand has its fair share of such organizations, young companies that are just as focused on the needs of the environment and the communities in which they operate as they are on making a profit. Here are some of the best examples.

Udomchai Farm In an age when ‘factory farming’ is all too common and agri-businesses focus on maximum yield within a limited area with little or no real concern for the welfare of the chickens themselves, egg producer Udomchai Farm refuses to use hormones, chemicals and antibiotics to accelerate growth and yield. Instead it aims to promote quality by raising free-range birds using probiotics and local herbs to build immunity and natural feeds such as corn, soybean meal, fish meal and rice bran. Eggs from Udomchai Farm were first sold in the market in 2008 under the brand name “Ploikai Udomchai Farmâ€? with the slogan “Organic Free-Range Eggsâ€?. Udomchai Farm continues to stick to its principle of raising chickens with compassion, and the natural way has paid off with the company offering a product of recognized superior quality. Social and environmental returns: Udomchai Farm is a leader in the organic egg market in Thailand. By raising chickens naturally, it has ensured its eggs are toxin-free and better-tasting. The eggs are safer for the consumer and the use of probiotics, Thai herbs and organic feed provides outlets for other up-stream producers. Udomchai Farm has won awards from the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) for its outstanding accomplishments in organic farming. ”Ô›p”¥Ô‚“ÓÂ?‚q²›jš}–¥}ŠsÂšÂ‹ÂˆÂ›ÂŒĂ—ÂŠÂ‡ÂŒÂ™Â‡ÂĄÂ€Â ÂƒÂ›Â€Â“ÂŒÂ™ÂƒÂĄÂŒÂž”Š¢Ó‚‚‡”Ž§‹ Â?‚~Â˛Â›ÂƒÂŽÂ‡ÂŒÂ™Â‡ÂĄÂ€Â ÂƒÂ›Â€ Â–Â˛Â›ÂĽÂ‰Â–Â‡ÂŒÂ™Â‡ÂĄÂ€Â ÂƒÂ›Â€qšp”Â?š}Â“ÂŒÂ™ÂƒÂĄÂŒÂžÂ§Â€ÂŒÂ‘ÂšÂ‡Â€Ă—     www.ploikai.com e-mail: sutatip_egg@hotmail.com Udomchai Farm Limited Partnership Praputtabath Saraburi 64 Moo 12 Phaholyothin Rd.

A saying has it that average teachers merely relate information, good teachers explain it, better teachers demonstrate it but the best teachers inspire. For Varnnee Chearavanont Ross, the founder and school director of Concordian International School, being a teacher is more than the sum of its parts. It is a life spent giving young minds the key to a better world for themselves and others, so that they become moral leaders capable of changing the world for the common good. °³Å¦‡º°Â¦Š´œ—µ¨Ä‹š¸ÉšÎµÄ®o ‡»–ª¦¦–¸ „n °˜´ÊŠÃ¦ŠÁ¦¸ ¥œœµœµµ˜· ‡°œ‡°¦r Á—¸¥œ"  ˜´ŠÊ ˜nª¥´ ¦»œn —·Œœ´ ¤¸‡ªµ¤‡·—Á­¤°ªnµÁ¦µ‹³šÎµ°³Å¦š¸¤É ø °„µ­‹³nª¥ Á®¨º°­´Š‡¤Å—ooµŠ"Ž¹ÉŠÁž}œÁ¦ºÉ°Šš¸É—·Œ´œ‡·—¤µ˜¨°—¤o˜n˜°œš¸ÉÁ¦¸¥œ°¥¼nĜ ¤®µª·š¥µ¨´¥‡ªµ¤Á¦¸¥Šš¸ÉÁ…¸¥œ˜°œš¸É­¤´‡¦­°Á…oµœ´Êœ—·Œ´œ„Èŗo°„ªnµÁ¤ºÉ° Á¦¸¥œ­ÎµÁ¦È‹Â¨oª„È°¥µ„„¨´¤µ¤¸­nªœ¦nª¤¡´•œµž¦³Áš«Åš¥¡°¤°Š¥o°œ „¨´Åž„Ȧ¼oªnµ˜´ªÁ°Š­œÄ‹Á¦ºÉ°Šœ¸Ê¤µ°¥nµŠ˜n°ÁœºÉ°Š­nªœ®œ¹ÉŠ°µ‹Áž}œÁ¡¦µ³ªnµ —·Œ´œÃ‡—¸š¸É¤¸‡¦°‡¦´ªš¸É°°»nœ¤¸š»„°¥nµŠ¡¦o°¤ŗoÁ®ÈœÃ¨„£µ¥œ°„ªnµ¥´Š¤¸ ‡œ°¸„¤µ„¤µ¥š¸É…µ—‡¨œÂ¨³˜o°Š„µ¦‡ªµ¤nª¥Á®¨º°šÎµÄ®o—·Œ´œ¦¼o­¹„ªnµ Á¦µ‹³šÎµ°¥nµŠÅ¦Ä®o˜´ªÁ¦µ¤¸ž¦³Ã¥œr­µ¤µ¦™nª¥‡œ°ºÉœÇŗooµŠ  ™oµ™µ¤ªnµ°³Å¦‡º°Â¦Š´œ—µ¨Ä‹"‡ªµ¤‹¦·ŠÂ¨oªŤnÁ‡¥¤¸‡ªµ¤‡·— Á¦º°É Š­¦oµŠÃ¦ŠÁ¦¸¥œ¤µ„n°œ˜n„°n œ‹³­œÄ‹„µ¦nª¥Á®¨º°Á—È„¥µ„‹œÁž}œ®¨´„ ˜n¨oªª´œ®œ¹ÉŠÅ—o¤¸Ã°„µ­ÅžÁ¥¸É¥¤Ã¦ŠÁ¦¸¥œœµœµµ˜·Â®nŠ®œ¹ÉŠš¸É±n°Š„Š¨oª ŗoŞÁ®Èœž–·›µœ…°ŠÃ¦ŠÁ¦¸¥œŽ¹ŠÉ „¨nµªÅªoªµn vÁ…µ°¥µ„‹³­¦oµŠÁ—È„š¸ÁÉ ž¨¸¥É œÂž¨Š

Education Creates Life – An Interview with Khun

VARnnee Chearavanont Ross What inspired you to establish Concordian International School? Since I was a teenager I’ve asked myself what can I do for society. I’ve been trying since university. I can even remember producing an application essay in which I wrote about doing good for Thai society after finishing my degree. It’s something I’ve always been interested in and I have been fortunate to have a very supportive family who gave me the chance to explore the world via education, travel and work. Many today lack such opportunities but I want to make use of my upbringing and experience to help others gain an education. In terms of inspiration, actually I didn’t intend to establish a school. At the time I was concentrating mainly on helping only poor students. But I had the chance to visit a school in Hong Kong and get to know its philosophy; ‘To create students who create a better world.’ This impressed me deeply and made me re-evaluate what I was doing. I realised that we should focus on students with opportunities in education because they have the best chance to change the world. They have the most effective means of support and thus are best placed to effect change for the better in society. On the other hand, they could make society worse if they lack morality. The idea of establishing a school was born in 1999 when Thailand and many countries in Asia were facing the Tom Yam Kung economic crisis. If you consider the recent economic and social problems we have experienced, you will see that the issues were not caused by uneducated people. Rather the problems arose with the emerging classes who are well-educated and increasingly influential here at home and in the world. It made me realize that an education without any morality can be a dangerous thing to the whole world. So I asked myself what was missing in education? And I concluded that a school has a duty to teach students to be responsible and moral if we want a better world. But the big questions are how do we make them both good and competent people; and how do we teach them to realize that ethics and public interest are the most important aspects? These morals are even more important than smartness or wealth as generally perceived by people. Study is all well and good but the key questions to ask are have you tried your best? Have you paid enough attention? Are you a good person? Because if you are smart but have no morality, you are not Concordian International School material. The name ‘Concordian” alludes to people who hold fast to peace. We named the school in order to promote a more peaceful world. And only moral people can make a peaceful world.

Starting up is always challenging. How did you learn to manage the school? In the beginning, there were a lot of questions. For example, what type of international school would we be when there are already many such schools in Thailand. I didn’t want to establish yet another ‘typical’ international school. What we really want to do is create tomorrow’s leaders, youngsters who can communicate in many languages. We want to bring out the best potential in our students in order to put them on the path to sensible decision-making based on morality and social concern. We broadened this idea by looking at what makes successful leaders and what our school should offer – other than English and Thai language skills. We thought about the Chinese language, which was not commonly taught here 10 years ago, because we reasoned that teaching Chinese would give our students an advantage. It helps them grow as individuals and offers a fast-track ticket to the world of economics. Unlike other schools, forty per cent of our program for students from nursery to Grade 5 is instructed in Chinese. Of course there will be more Chinese people who are able to communicate in English. But the truth is most Chinese business owners are not proficient in the language. They hire someone to speak English for them. So if we can speak Chinese with

This is a special ability we want our students to have. It is not easy We are lucky to have met good people. Perhaps this has something and many don’t believe we can succeed but we are getting there. to do with our Buddhist background – because we think good and do good so we meet good people. For example, we met Since opening, how has the school developed? our first educational partner by chance. It is not a famous school, but they have the same philosophy as ours. They introduced us Well, I must say that the school has been a collaboration with to the International Baccalaureate curriculum which was not so many good people. Initially we had to research education systems well-known in Asia 10 years ago. This curriculum places emphasis and methodologies with the help of experts. We invited some on doing good, helping society, building morality, being responsible of the world’s biggest educational organizations (including the and the most important thing... self-evaluation. This is at the European Council of International Schools (ECIS) and Council heart of what we are trying to promote in our school. of International Schools (CIS)) to help us plan our curriculum and find suitable teachers and we have benefited from the advice Now that you are established, how do you evaluate the progress of famous professors from recognized schools from all over the of the school? world. Moreover, we have the endorsement of the New England Association of Schools and Colleges- a U.S. regional association It took us nine years for our first alumni students to graduate, providing educational accreditation for all levels of education. a big step in becoming an accepted institution. It was very hard It once accredited Harvard University and it assessed, validated but well worth the time taken. There were only fifteen students in that first alumni and many were admitted to world class and accredited our curriculum too.


27 universities such as Stanford and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. This year, our second alumni students (the Class of 2011) also received good marks and many are off to well-known institutions such as Imperial College London, University College London, London School of Economics and Political Science and King’s College London. It has been way beyond our expectations and a great achievement.

list given to them. There are some diligent students who get high scores because they have a natural understanding of the subject. But generally most students get by simply on guess-work and if they don’t know the correct answer, well never mind. So multiple choice doesn’t really teach anything and classes are also far too big. In a class of 60 children how many can seriously gain a good understanding of what the teacher is trying to get across to them?

What are the overall strengths of your school? (What sets it apart Is there a gap between connecting study in a classroom and living from other international schools in Thailand)? in a real world? I think we are unique in that our curriculum for the students in early years is conducted in three languages: English, Thai and Chinese. It’s not only about studying Chinese as a language though. We use Chinese as a language medium in teaching other subjects - as we do with English. We divide classroom time specifically to instruct in the three tongues - fifteen minutes of Thai language tuition, forty minutes of Chinese and forty-five minutes in English. Students are also assigned to do projects in both English and Chinese languages. This method has never been used before by schools here, especially those implementing the IB curriculum, which integrates very well in Chinese by the way. Ninety per cent of our parents are Thai and eighty per cent of them cannot speak Chinese! We believe this really sets us apart from other schools. In terms of quality management in education, we teach our students the best we can and we don’t compare students over each other. A student will compete with himself or herself. In this way I think we build their competencies and position them for a quality higher education. We try to find them the best resources, excellent teachers in particular. We don’t measure ourselves with others so much but we do continually evaluate ourselves in order to create activities that correspond to our philosophy and add value to our education model. What changes do you think we need to make in order to encourage our kids to be responsible to society?

I always tell my students that they can determine and control their lives. Once they read, they acquire knowledge. And if they read regularly, they become more informed. In other words, they have control. But in the real world there will always be other factors you cannot control. Are they ready for that I ask them? When they leave their school they have to be prepared. And parents shouldn’t only have them study. They need to learn to be responsible – children need hobbies and interests to develop character otherwise they lack social skills and become weak. What is your plan for educational development? I would like to follow my father’s policy, which is to develop and keep improving all the time. There is no moment for pause, this is continual. Our curriculum must be reviewed and redeveloped every one or two years to meet the current situation. This applies especially to our Chinese curriculum because there are no defined textbooks for students. We also need to move with the times. Students today are different. Ten years ago only fourth grade students could speak Chinese, but today our first grade students are becoming fluent. So we cannot use the old curriculum for the new generation. Many people don’t understand why we always have to change. But we change for the better, based on our philosophy of providing our students with maximum educational benefits.

We always review morality and the way we teach our students. We really want to promote a balanced combination of Science, Maths and Arts. Many of world’s best scientists were or are very good artists. For example, Charles Darwin was able to draw what he saw in nature beautifully. Once these components are combined in an individual, there is huge potential for the sort of creativity that leads to great innovation. If not combined then students run the risk of becoming one dimensional. We must set conditions in which students are able to explore all facets of their creativity. This will be beneficial to them in the future. I also want to In your opinion, what are the weakest aspects of the Thai encourage parents not to force their children to like or study something simply because they (the parents) wish it. Children educational? should have the right to choose their own interests and parents Take, for example, the testing system here. Typical examination should support them in their choices. We must respect the questions offer a simple choice of true or false answers. Because abilities of children to think for themselves. students have been studying like this for 16-20 years, they never have the chance to express their opinions, to explain their answers Aside from being a teacher, what do you care most about as a to questions, to properly demonstrate their learning. So how can mother? they improve themselves if they are not required to think for themselves?! They should be able to formulate their own answers Creating good morally upright human beings. Sons and daughters and justify them, not simply choose it from a multiple choices should be kind, respectful and polite and basically value all people We need to spend more time teaching youngsters about the world as a whole. Classroom learning is important but not the end-all. We arrange boy-scout and girl-guide activities. Every other Thursday the students have a half-day for extramural activities. Grade 6 to 12 students get involved in social voluntary activities and learn about team-work and co-operation. Basically our senior students participate in social activities while our juniors are more involved in school activities.

equally. I want my children to behave morally and be useful. Above all, they must not seek to take advantages of others. As a mother and a teacher how do you encourage the strengths in children? As a matter of fact, the two roles are different. At the moment we have a small student body so I know every single student personally. This makes it possible to keep an eye on them individually, to get to know their dreams and aspirations and work towards helping them achieve those dreams. For example, we have a student who is good at art, but he will not be going on to study art at a recognized school. He wants to study finance even though he scores C grades in Mathematics. This is because he feels he has to follow in his parents footsteps because they work in the finance field. Moreover, he questions whether he can make a living through art. It is our job to encourage him to be confident and believe in himself. Art graduates today have very rewarding careers in fields such as Creative Advertising Design and Creative Marketing. So children such as this pupil should maintain their individual interests and make use of any special talent. If a student talks to his parents about a career as a palaeontologist, the chances are high that the parents won’t see the value in their son studying old dinosaur bones and will probably suggest he goes to business or medical school instead. That is not our way here. Instead we will suggested that the student strives to go to the very best school of palaeontology so he can learn from the best and in turn carve out a secure career as an expert in his field. He could even become a top professor himself and earn a good and worthwhile living instructing others. My son loves studying history and wants to be a history professor. But he too wonders if such a career will offer him a stable living. And my answer to him is ‘of course it will, providing you aim for the best school and later on the top of your profession’. I encourage him to study hard in order achieve the grades he will need for a good university. The better his grades, the wider his choice – an important point if he later decides on a different career. If we tell them it is impossible, it will stifle their abilities, their desire to learn, and turn their education into a dull exercise. No teacher wants to do that! When you look back, what is the best impression you have of your own family? The best moments in my life are spent with my family. Just to be able to have breakfast and talk together in the mornings makes me happy. Our family works very hard, so we hardly see each other. That’s why the time we spend together is so precious. Although we have different personalities, we love each other very much and truly believe in the values that our parents taught us. The most important thing in life is family. If a person has a good family life they tend to grow up as a good person themselves. This reminds me of an old saying, ‘A good society is born from good families.’

“Children” and “Special Abilities” Every parent harbors hopes that their child will grow up with “special abilities”. However, when those expectations are realized there are times when gifted children can struggle to assimilate and this raises concerns for parents. So what can they do to recognize their child’s talent and help him or her to find their place in the world? Can normal children develop special abilities? In fact, every child is good at something, it’s just they all have different abilities. We can identify these abilities by observing their response process to activities such as music, sport, art and storytelling. In the case of very young children, much can be learned simply by watching them play. If a child shows a particular aptitude for something this can then be developed and encouraged. When do children begin to display specific talents or special abilities? The development of children and their playing process normally go together. We can see differences between children and their friends when they are in kindergarten. In fact, parents who pay close attention to their children and spend quality time with them at home may recognize the signs of a particular talent even earlier. However, when children are in kindergarten or play with children of their own age, these differences tend to become more distinct. Each child has his or her own abilities which become even more obvious as they progress through elementary school. How do we know if a child has a special ability or not? And what can we do to support a gifted child? In the first place, parents must be open-minded and understand that children learn at different rates. All we need to do is to let them explore various activities. Don’t simply push your child into something that you want for them and don’t think that the only important

abilities are those in the academic sphere, subjects such as maths and science. There are many more areas in which children can excel; art, music and sport for example. A child can also show an aptitude for teamwork or demonstrate leadership skills. These are all abilities just waiting to be recognized. Don’t take it for granted that your children will be exactly how you want them to be. Some children might love singing for example, while some might be good at art and painting. Some might prefer the cerebral solitude of maths while others show a knack for performing in front of an audience. Variety is the key to all-round development and parents need to know not to make their children feel pressured by setting a course for them that they don’t want. This will only make a child unhappy in the long run. Let things come naturally to them and encourage them by giving them opportunities to display their abilities. At some point their talents will show and parents will recognize this. The child will feel confident doing what they are good at and if parents continue to support them, their abilities will be more and more pronounced. However, if these abilities prove to be well above the average, parents can consult with a child psychologist or pediatrician to measure the level of their child’s development and seek advice on setting a program that suits their child best. Gifted children often experience pressure, especially if they possess extremely high intelligence levels. If they are made to feel somehow different – either through peer pressure or because of pressure from parents to perform – this can lead to a feeling of isolation. In addition, such children may also have difficulties with systemic learning models. So parents and teachers must be open-minded and work together to help children, gifted or otherwise, find their place in society and develop their abilities and interests at their own pace.

Strolling in the Rain in Khao Yai “Sometimes allowing oneself to roam a forest alone without meticulous planning becomes a special occasion, a journey to explore one’s feelings…” That was the first thought that came to my mind as I sat in the Khao Yai National Park’s lodge making notes at the end of a recent walking trip. Appropriately, my deliberations were accompanied by the drumming sound of rainfall hitting the lodge’s roof, a reminder of a memorable if damp afternoon strolling in nature. It has been a long time since I first heard the name “Khao Yai”, but it still resonates with me after all these years because having been introduced to Thailand’s first National Park I had the intention of studying at the Faculty of Forestry. It all started with a slide show of a lush rain forest in Geography class and a single question. “The forest of Khao Yai spans four provinces. Can anybody tell me the names of those provinces?” asked our teacher. Of course, at the time I was eager to get in on the act and raised my hand to answer the question without knowing exactly which those provinces were (Nakhon Ratchasima, Nakhon Nayok, Saraburi and Prachin Buri for the record). My first chance to visit Khao Yai came around ten years ago. I went to the park with a student friend from university during a particularly cold ‘cool season’. It was a trip of ease and relaxation and I remember sharing many jokes and laughter as we kept the chilly weather at bay by drinking hot coffee around a campfire. Happy days indeed. Back to the present. This afternoon, the rain refused to yield to sunlight so I made the best of the conditions and walked in the drizzle along the 3-kilometer Pha Kluai Mai-Heaw Suwat nature trail. It was the first time I had walked alone in Khao Yai and it was something of a revelation – no distractions through conversation, just the solitude of me and my thoughts as I moved at a comfortable pace through the pure nature of the forest in the rainy season. Not many people would consider hiking at a time like this. I enjoyed the regular sound of my footsteps through the brush as I made my way along the hillside trail, a sound periodically interrupted by the roaring splash of a waterfall as it hit the rocks below. I was able to take in many colorful flowers, the names of which were unknown to me although their beauty amidst the lush green forest was all too evident. At that moment, my heart was lifted and I felt in wonderfully high spirits. That might be a vague description compared to what my eyes saw and my heart felt, but I was truly charmed and without a care in the world as I plodded along. The rain gradually let up as my journey came to an end. It was a relief because my legs were tired and I felt in need of a rest to recover my strength. I chose a rock in a clearing next to a creek and sat peacefully watching Glass Yellow butterflies, fluttering indifferently to a visitor like me, as they went about sucking up salt and minerals from the rocks at the water’s edge. That brief moment made me recall the lines of a favorite book of mine which say: “There are two ways to study the butterfly. One is to catch it with a net and explore its dead body. Or you can just sit quietly in a garden and watch it dance among flowers.” The latter, of course, gives you the flavor of life and an experience far more rewarding than you will ever get in a classroom or museum.

To be able to admire beauty such as this doesn’t cost anything. In fact money is useless when you have the opportunity to admire nature, to be at one with it and yourself. I have been asked by people on a number of occasions why I like to hike, especially on my own. Is it because I want to see animals in their natural habitat? Or do I want to test my physical strength? Well, the answers are hard to put into words and I suppose a combination of many feelings. It isn’t any splendid philosophy and in the end it comes down to the simplicity of being alone with one’s thoughts in nature. Not many people have a chance to experience such solitude, an opportunity to talk to oneself and to listen to the sounds of nature. Perhaps this is because all too often in modern life we choose to run rather than walk!

Khao Yai National Park was established on September 18, 1962 as Thailand’s first National Park. Covering an area of almost 2,200 square kilometers, the park was also declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1984 and has since been listed among the top ten sites around the world in terms of ozone concentration. The people who live near Khao Yai are very lucky and I envy them… But do you really know what ‘ozone’ is? Ozone is a gas that is naturally present in our atmosphere. It can be created near the ground by lightning or in the atmosphere when the sun’s rays split oxygen molecules into single atoms. These atoms then recombine to form a three-atom oxygen molecule, and this is what we call ‘ozone’. Which explains why there is a lovely fresh smell in the air after a thunderstorm. Around the world today, traffic plays a major role in causing air pollution, pumping tonnes of carbon monoxide and sulfur dioxide into the atmosphere. Small dusts particles and airborne bacteria are also part of the problem. When you breathe in these pollutants, they can harm your health. For example, they may increase the risk of allergies and cause a feeling of tiredness. So, if you want to feel alive and in tune with nature, you know where to go to treat your lungs to a blast fresh air… Khao Yai National Park.

According to Thailandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Average Annual Rainfall statistics, rainfall in 2010 was not much higher than the year before. It increased by only 5 per cent above average. However, Average Monthly Rainfall figures for 2010 (see Diagram 2) also showed that parts of Thailand were affected by severe drought. This drought crisis took place between February to May whereas sudden heavy rains were recorded in October and December. The major cause of natural disasters often points to a climate change.

Natural disasters are a common aspect of the Earthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s history and a means for the planet to maintain a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;balanceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. For instance, earthquakes are generally the result of collisions and release of subsequent pressure between the Earthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tectonic plates; Volcanoes are explosions of heat and pressure caused by geological and geothermal activity deep underground; and extreme weather the result of global atmospherics, including temperature. The shocking truth is that while man can do little about volcanoes and earthquakes, he is directly involved in the creation of the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s climate. Since the Industrial Revolution, man has continuously exploited all known resources in the natural environment â&#x20AC;&#x201C; our dependence on fossil fuels and deforestation are prime examples. Such actions have an adverse impact on the patterns of the Earthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s environmental system. As does the rise in greenhouse gases emissions, especially CO2 and CFCs. The consequent global warming precipitated by this negligence contributes to a rise in average global temperatures followed by a rapid retreat of glaciers in the Arctic. When the sea level rises, the ratio between land and water on Earth (generally 1:3) changes, which in turn impacts the Earthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s geology and weather so that the planetâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s natural state is unbalanced

GIVING BACK

Dhamma Yatra Walking with Nature For over ten years “Dhamma Yatra”, the pilgrimage, has left a footprint for people to learn the way of walking, which is much more than simply lifting your feet and placing one in front of the other. The first steps of Dhamma Yatra in Thailand began with a small group of people under the guidance of Phra Pisan Visalo. Walking through villages along the Lampatao River, up on the Phu Lanka mountain range in Chaiyaphum for 8 days and 7 nights, they were not only walking for religious enlightenment but also for the sake of conservation. The walk was intended to provoke a realization in villagers that they have the power to make the environment better. By starting with oneself and expanding to the community, society as a whole becomes more attuned to green concepts. Today, Dhamma Yatra continues to inspire many people to walk in nature all over the country. The ‘Faith in Water’ pilgrimage from the high mountains of Mae Ping to the watersheds of the Chao Praya was the latest walk under the leadership of Mr. Nikom Bhuddha, a well-known environmental activist and a veteran member of the Dhamma Yatra movement. Speaking about the essence of this Dhamma Yatra and the importance of water Mr. Nikom says, “Everything is alive because of water. Water, therefore, is crucial to life and Thailand has over 25 watersheds, both underground streams and large rivers. Moisture and rainfall are stored by rich forests. To ensure good quality water and that there is enough for everybody to use requires conservation and sustainable management, especially of water-related factors such as forests. The Chao Praya River is the main artery in the country and it stems from four key tributaries – the Ping, Wang, Yom and Nan rivers, which originate in the high mountains of the North. Unfortunately today forested areas in the North are being rapidly encroached upon, which has resulted in a loss of waterstoring ability and other problems such as flooding, landslides and ironically even


47 drought. The conflict between water management and utilization has grown from a local to industrial level. We cannot just sit by and watch the continued encroachment on forests. The damage to water resources effects the lives of both humans and animals. Day by day our ecosystem is becoming more degenerated. The relationship between man and nature has become less and less balanced and so has the appreciation of the problem in human souls. This Dhamma Yatra from the Ping River to the watersheds of the Chao Praya River was therefore the pilgrimage of a small group of people who have faith in nature. Because nature is being destroyed, these people have decided to go on a pilgrimage along the rivers that are the country’s life-blood in order to send a message to others and raise youngsters who will be our future. As a result of this walk we are planning another Dhamma awareness in society. Yatra from 22-26 October, 2011. The walk The overview of this Dhamma Yatra was to will take place in the Innthanon forest in walk with mindfulness. In the morning there Chiang Mai. Already we have around 80 was ‘walking meditation’. In the afternoon, monks and novices who are ready to join the there were conversations with local people pilgrimage. We also expect around 200 people along the way. In the evenings we met to including school children and tribes people exchange ideas about the environmental such as the Karen, Hmong and Lisu, who situation and what needs to be done to conserve live in the area, to join us. And we would forests, water and other natural resources. like to invite you to join the walk as well.” We had the chance to talk to villagers of all www.chiangdaocamp.com ages but the most promising group were the %@BDANNJŒŒŠ‹›~Œ›‘Œš€›¦”Óp“›‹‚²®›

MIND NUDGE “Dhamma Yatra is an activity to challenge the meaning of walking. Walking is the most practical way for people to feel their true selves, both inside and out. The heart of Dhamma Yatra is to educate people on the difference between being ‘able to walk’ and ‘knowing how to walk’. Villagers will know the purpose of Dhamma Yatra — it is for nature, for forests. They might not join the walk, but they will understand. When we first started the walks people would ask ‘Why? What for?’ The main points are trust and faith in spiritualism, including the confidence in the spirit of the Dhamma Yatra working group. The obvious benefit is the exchange of culture and ideas and raising awareness of environmental issues. Participants treat each other with respect, love, compassion and do not expect anything in return. The result is that more and more people want to join the walks every year. The walker will expand his or her circle of friends to include people from various backgrounds and occupations such as government officials, teachers and private sector employees. Many who know the schedule are already preparing to join the walk. Dhamma Yatra, therefore, is a space for true friends with similar ideas.” Phra Paisan Visalo

Eco-friendly Design

By Pipat Apirakthanakorn

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Topâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Pipat Apirakthanakorn, is a man of many talents. A qualified designer, he is best known as a TV show host and DJ but is returning to his roots with the launch of a new business called â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Eco Shopâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. M SOCIETY recently caught up with him to find out what inspired this foray into the world of retail. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The inspiration of Eco Shop comes from many sources. In the first place it stems from a personal passion and interest in design - I earned a Bachelorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s degree in Design but having gone into the entertainment business, I never really had the opportunity to use what I learned. However, I went back to school to study for a Masterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s degree in Marketing and that also inspired me because I figured it would be a strength if it came to opening the design shop Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always dreamed of. And here we are! While researching a topic for my thesis, I happened to watch the movie â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;An Inconvenient Truthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. I found it very interesting and it got me thinking about the importance of the environment. So, in the end I chose to do my thesis on eco-friendly furniture. I was also fortunate to have the opportunity to become a member of the group of ecofriendly designers at the National Science and Technology Development Agency (NSTDA),


53 channels who help to promote my shop. Our brand has become widely known faster than I expected. However, in terms of sales, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not making much profit. One reason is that we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t set a high price. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re afraid that if our product is expensive, people will be reluctant to buy it. What we truly want is to motivate people to buy green products and try them out. We want to know what they think and feel about our designs. When designers know that their efforts are paying off, they are inspired to keep on making new and better designs for the public. And this is what I really want from this business.â&#x20AC;? Are there any special stories behind your products? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Actually every single one of my products has a story behind it. For example, our latest item we found at a stall in a Luang Prabang market in Laos. They are handicraft dolls and look like a monster with two heads. Although these little dolls are made of new cloth, they are just right for our shop because we also want to help local craftsmen and women. where among other things they look at ways of converting garbage into valuable products. I teamed up with a leading Thai eco-friendly designer, Dr. Singh Intrachooto, and together we created a lamp made of curtain parts such as threads and drapes. The product turned out really well and it actually impressed a factory owner. At the time the main problem we faced was how to sell this green product when there wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a single eco shop available in town. In a similar vein, I have seen many design contests and competitions for eco-friendly products but no proper retail space in which to view and purchase them, hence no visible development of such items once they were created. These points taken together prompted me to pursue my dream of having an eco-shop, not only to showcase my own products but also as a test market for other eco-designers.â&#x20AC;? Eco Shop by Top Pipat has grown at a slower rate than anticipated but there are many interesting points that can be learned from this initiative. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I accepted the fact that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a small shop focusing on the design and we do not have a big budget when compared to other design companies or stores in the market. But â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Eco Shopâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; has a unique concept in that it is the first â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;greenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; shop offering talented ecodesigners a forum in which to showcase their products. It doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t matter if you only have one or two items. If your products are creatively designed, outstanding and environmentally-friendly then we will be happy to invite you to be a part of our shop.â&#x20AC;? Success takes time and commitment. How do you feel about this journey? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m quite satisfied with this chapter of my life. When we started launching our products, our goal was to build brand awareness and to show what green products are all about. Prior to that many people thought eco-products were simply made out of only natural materials. In fact, there are many ways of creating these products to help the environment. And what we do truly grabs peoples attention. Part of this success comes from the media and I am grateful to all media

In addition, we also carry products from a group of housewives called â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Friends Internationalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. Their children and grandchildren sell garlands along the road and at junctions after school. To stop their kids wandering the streets, this group of ladies has found a creative way to make money by selling necklaces made out of the old magazine paper. They also make bracelets and other accessories made out of old candy boxes. Both look amazing and are very creative.â&#x20AC;? What is the next step for Eco Shop? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m planning to establish Eco Shop as a center for green products and eco-friendly information. It wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just be about the products. We want to be able to give advice. We have professional experts who know all there is to know about the eco-friendly movement. They are Dr. Singh Intrachooto and Khun Jah Veeranuch Tanchookiat. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in the process of establishing a consulting company specializing in eco-design. Moreover, we hope to be a one-stop-service eco-center that designs products that help the environment and people.â&#x20AC;? What has made you successful? My family is a big part of my success. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m very lucky to have the support of both my parents, especially my mom. She has always been there for me, helping whenever I experience difficult times. She is my role model, my personal adviser, and she encourages me to do things for myself. She has helped me reach my goals. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m grateful for having my parents in my life and I want to spend time with them, show my love for them and take good care of them. Life is too short. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to live out my days with regret, which is why I try to live every day to the fullest. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be afraid to show your love for your parents. Start now and tell them how much you love them. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the best way to live together as a family. $".2'./NTSKDSEK #HFHS@K&@SDV@X!THKCHMF  2H@L2PT@QD 1@L@(1N@C /@SGTLV@M !@MFJNJ 3G@HK@MC .ODMC@HKX,NMĂ 3GT @LĂ  OL%QHĂ 2TM @L  OL $ L@HKBNMS@BSDBNRGNO HM SGVVV DBNRGNO HM SG

Elizabeth Sadler: “Communicating Happiness and Love” For over ten years actress and TV personality Elizabeth Sadler has brought happiness to local audiences through the small screen. One of the most popular anchors in Thailand today, she has a distinctive personality and a facility for language and the art of communication. Her success comes from an obvious enthusiasm for learning and a mind bent on attention to detail. In this issue, Venus Attitude caught up with Ms. Elizabeth to talk about her unique approach to work and life. “To be honest, I was very shy when I first started out as an actress and TV host. I tried to make excuses every time someone wanted me try out for a role or presenting job. Eventually though I realized I had to give it a proper go and things have turned out well so far. I was very young in the early days, still only a teenager, and I didn’t really take work seriously. However, it dawned on me that I needed to grow up, that I wasn’t going to be a teenager forever, and so despite job offers continuing to come in, I decided to study for a Master’s degree in the UK. It was a way of establishing some independence and also gave me the chance to spend time with the English members of my family, particularly my grandma before she passed away. After returning to Thailand, I continued to get offers of work and the job characteristic were more mature. Personally I love what I do now, especially working as a host because I get to experience the support of a great team. “One day, I happened to be watching television and saw a job going as a TV anchor. It interested me and I wondered if I was mature enough for the challenge of connecting with a large public audience. Anyway, I immediately sent in an application to TV5, who were advertising the position, and I landed the job a few months later. It was perfect timing, just right for me at the time and I’ve grown into the anchor role. I get positive feedback from colleagues and viewers which is fantastic. In fact I’ve probably found my ideal job.”

it would be. Partly because I can be myself and I understand the context and content of the job. I enjoy communicating with others. And luckily the channel doesn’t dictate a particular style of presentation. It is serious but also spontaneous and fun. I try my best and try to convey information in such a way that engages the the audience, makes them listen and take an interest in what I’m reporting. When I look back at the beginning, I just thought that seeing the name “Elizabeth Sadler” in the end credits of a news program was satisfying enough. But it’s much more than that now – having an anchor with an English name but one that can speak Thai fluently was really something. I have put a lot of effort into speaking correct Thai but communicating clearly is what it’s all about. Doing that well gives me real pleasure.” Besides being an anchor, is there other work that you enjoy doing? “I do voice-over and dubbing work for advertising spots, both in Thai and in English, and that’s fun. In the future I’d like to start my own business – I’ve been inspired by my father who has had a hand in my career from the beginning. The business would combine what I am doing now, using my voice and presentation skills, with the knowledge I gained from my Master’s degree studies, which focused on e-commerce.” Along the way there will inevitably be obstacles to overcome. How do you deal with them? “It depends on how significant the obstacle is and its impact. If I know the source of the problem, I will try to stay away from it. I don’t rise to criticism because it isn’t in my nature to fight with other people. I love having a peaceful life and being happy in my work. I don’t see the necessity of complicating life with hard competition, a desire to be on top. I just do what I love doing and concentrate on doing it well. I want to make every opportunity count. So every day I only think about improving my performance and shows I’m involved in. This keeps me busy enough to forget about unwanted distractions.”

ily is a huge factor. I have very strong ties with my parents, sister and other relatives. I don’t feel any lack of love, far from it. They encourage me and affirm that what I’m doing is good. I also have a good group of friends. I’m especially close to my mom because she has always taken care of me. She still cooks for me and drops me at the station and so on! I’m always secretly pleased when someone says that I’m lucky to have such an attentive mother. I still live with my parents and although I know it’s only a matter of time before we are parted, I love their company and guidance and I cherish the time spent with them. The source of my strength is often a big hug from one or both of them.” Based on your experience as an anchor, how do you view today’s society and the role of the family in it? “Frightening aspects of society today include breakdown in communications and expectations inside the family. Some parents don’t give their children the chance to talk when they have problems. Many simply disapprove rather than look for causes of problems and ways of preventing them. Parents sometimes cannot hide their disappointment when their children don’t turn out the way they want them to be and children can feel pressured into certain career paths that they wouldn’t ordinarily choose for themselves. It can make for resentment and disappointment.

“To live under the same roof but not commute with each other is tragic…kids parked in front of computer screens, fathers working late or entertaining clients, mothers habituated to soap operas and so on…this lack of Who or what influences you to be who you communication, of family dialog, won’t make What are the challenges of being a TV anchor? are right now? society any better. A good society begins “It’s strange. It’s not as hard as I thought “The love and support I get from my fam- with love and understanding in the home.”

Environmental Art and Portraits of Consumer Culture There is more to â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;artâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; than a feeling of pleasure. A meaningful message, especially in terms of society and the environment, can always be found through the strokes of an artistâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brush. And many artists create works more to provoke thought than a thing of beauty.

,HCV@X,DRR@FDEQNLSGD&XQD

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Eco-artistâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Chris Jordan, who is best known for creating green art, is a good example. His deep passion for the environment and for raising environmental awareness has brought much attention to his striking photography. In recent years his images highlighting our consumer culture and the statistics related to consumerism have attracted wide attention from environmental activists. Stand-out works include Running the Numbers: An American Self-Portrait; Portraits of global mass culture; and Midway: Message from the Gyre. In Jordanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s view all of us are responsible for causing todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s environmental problems â&#x20AC;&#x201C; unintentionally or otherwise â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and we rarely give a thought to the impact of our actions. However, he says that small individual actions to help the environment can have huge beneficial effects when multiplied by all of us. To promote awareness of environmental issues and encourage people to get involved and behave more responsibily towards the environment, Jordan uses great photographic technique to present unique images. For example, in the Running the Numbers: An American Self-Portrait collection he captured photos depicting 60,000 plastic bags â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the number of plastic bags used in the United States every five seconds â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and displayed them in different sizes. The smaller a photo, the clearer the details revealed. This method is a clever attention-grabbing technique and reinforces the message that we humans are the fundamental cause of this staggering mass consumption. Midway: Message from the Gyre is also a striking, powerful image. It depicts the decaying remains of a sea bird with a stomach full of non-recycled garbage such as plastic bottle caps and cigarette lighters, items the bird had consumed at sea. This heartbreaking photo is tangible proof of our carelessness and a damning indictment of our neglect when it comes to the environment. After all is said and done it illustrates clearly that â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;the butterfly effectâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; is no longer just a theory.

Gemasolar Power Plant The Notable Solar Power Plant System. Alternative Green Energy has been a major movement and has helped improve many countries around the world, including Thailand. To realize how advancing this green energy development is, we would like to present you, our readers, the remarkable innovation that is â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Gemasolar Power Plantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first solar thermal plant. Located in Seville, in the southern part of Spain, this solar power plant consists of 2,650 panels spread across 1,156 rai of land in a symmetrical and circular pattern which makes it resemble an enormous piece of art rather than a power plant as you might expect. The mirrored panels resemble sunflowers (known as heliostats) focus the sunâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s radiation and reflect energy to the receiver at the center of the plant, where the temperature can reach up to 900C. Apart from being a giant solar power plant, it is also the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first solar power station that generates electricity at night as well as during the daytime. The efficient storage system holds the heat effectively in tanks and enables this plant to provide electrical production of 6,600 hours per year or 110 million GW units per year, which can supply power to 25,000 homes. Above all, this clean and renewable energy reduces atmospheric Co2 emissions by up to 30,000 tons. This is a good example of green technology implementation and development. It certainly demonstrates that in the future, it is possible for us to find new, renewable energies or sources that prolong the life of our planet.
