This illustrated and highly readable book, Thailand’s Sustainable Development Sourcebook, published by Editions Didier Millet (EDM), aims to educate a wider English-speaking audience on unique Thai philosophies.
It begins by distilling the key concepts of sustainable development and then defines the issues at stake by profiling the key environmental, economic, social and cultural challenges faced by Thailand. The final and largest section of the book is a showcase of the ideas, individual pioneers, grassroots and community programmes, international partnerships and private sector initiatives that are paving the way for sustainable development.
Over 70 experts from various fields contributed to the book, writing on subjects ranging from income equality to education, from community participation to poverty eradication – all under the theme of long-term sustainability of society.
Asst. Prof. Dr. Molraudee Saratun from the College of Management, Mahidol University (CMMU) a co-sponsor of this year’s International Symposium on Sustainable Leadership, contributed in the chapter entitled: “Education for Sustainable Development”.
Dr Chirayu Isarangkun Na Ayuthaya, a Keynote Speaker at our forthcoming conference, was a special adviser in the production of the book.
ISL’s Dr Harald Bergsteiner and Dr Gayle Avery were also involved as advisers.
