Green World Foundation
Green World Foundation was founded in 1990 by Narisa Chakrabongse, under the patronage of Her Royal Highness Princess Galyani Vadhana, with the aim to provide an easy access of knowledge on the Thai environment through various forms of media. We work in collaboration with an array of specialists and players in many fields, in particular scientists, educators, practitioners, youths, schools and families, to create learning experiences in real situations outdoor, which empower citizens of all ages and backgrounds to assess the state of the local environments independently without the need of expensive equipments. Our Environmental Detectives programme, e.g. Stream Detectives, Seashore Detectives, and Air Detectives, uses observations of life forms around us as a means to read and assess the state of local environments, with the help of simple tools such as hand lens and user-friendly handbooks that we develop and test with real users. Interested users can learn directly from the handbooks, or build up their skills with training that we provide.
