The Young Ambassadors of Virtue Foundation, in cooperation with PTT Public Company Limited, organized a training camp for Young Ambassadors of Virtue called “Save the World, Save the Land”. The camp was held at the Sirindhorn International Environmental Park, Petchaburi Province between 30 October – 6 November 2014. The participants comprised 211 Young Ambassadors of Virtue and 34 teachers representing 73 schools from 22 provinces in Thailand.
The participants had an opportunity to learn His Majesty’s initiatives on energy conservation, energy for environment and alternative energy. They also obtained a hands-on experience on mangrove forest planting. The participants also received lessons to be prepared to respond to several forms of natural disasters. In addition, the camp also offered interactive lessons on ASEAN Community, neighboring countries and foreign languages. Such knowledge and experiences can be applied to support the Young Ambassadors of Virtue’s projects in participating schools.
After having completed this learning experience, 28 Young Ambassadors of Virtue and 6 teachers were selected to join the study trip to Malaysia in January 2015 to promote knowledge exchanges and friendship.
