On May 31 2016, ISL’s new book, Sufficiency Thinking, on the Thai Sufficiency Economy Philosophy (SEP), was launched at the start of ISL’s  11th International Symposium on Sustainable Leadership, held in Bangkok, Thailand.

The launch was a very successful, exciting and well-attended event, with a welcome speech from Dr. Chirayu Na Ayuthaya, Chairman of  the Thailand Sustainable Development Foundation followed by keynote speeches from His Excellency Don Pramudwinai, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Thailand, and Mr. Harald Link, Chairman of the B.Grimm group whose engaging talk covered how the B. Grimm group manage business with compassion.

Later in the day there were panel sessions involving the chapter authors and practitioners on four broad topics related to the SEP – health, education, agriculture and community, and business.

Read more about the research project and the contributors, who have developed this first systematic account of the powerful decision-making framework which is being applied across all areas of life in Thailand, to build a fair, resilient and sustainable economy and society.
