Thammasat University’s School of Global Studies organized a successful Sustainability Seminar at the KiddNap Meeting Room in Mint Tower. The seminar was attended by Mr. Grant Bertoli, the CEO of Marketbuzzz, Dr. Shelley McMillan, Senior Water Resources Specialist at The World Bank Group, Kanitha Kongrukgreatiyos from The World Bank Group as well as faculty, students and other interested members of the public. 

The seminar aimed to bring attention to environmental sustainability issues and opportunities in Thailand with a focus on water resources. It included presentations from Marketbuzzz, The World Bank Group, and graduate students of the MA & Ph.D. in Social Innovation and Sustainability program. The participants engaged in insightful discussions and gained valuable insights into public concerns and priorities among Thai people. Additionally, the seminar discussed public perceptions of environmental issues and responsibilities across the country, Thailand’s progress toward achieving Sustainable Development Goals and the World Bank’s latest research and programs focusing on water resources.

The presentations highlighted the many gaps between public perceptions of environmental sustainability, Thailand’s progress towards the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, and the reality of future challenges to Thailand’s natural resources. Dr. Prapaporn Tivayanond Mongkhonvanit, the school’s Dean, expressed her satisfaction with the public’s interest and engagement in sustainable environments for their future well-being. The UN Sustainable Development Goals are a core part of the school’s curriculum, and a better understanding of public concerns helps the faculty to focus on the priorities of the communities they serve.
