On February 29th 2020, Lanna Language School with support from Thai Eco Solutions hosted a litter picking and education event in the mountain village of Ban Khun Chan Khian, located within Doi Suthep-Pui National Park.  The event was a big success and welcomed both international as well as local volunteers, students, officers from Doi Suthep-Pui National Park, and Maewang Offroad Club to participate.  As well as helping to beautify the village by cleaning up litter, Lanna Language School also provided an element of education for the school children who live in the village, training them about the importance of keeping their village clean as well as the importance of recycling and reducing waste.  This hands on education program was great fun and enjoyed by all.  The event also gave the opportunity for participants to meet new people and make new friends, as well as enjoyed a morning in the pleasant surroundings of the village, which is located at an altitude of 1500m enjoying cooler weather than in the city and is surrounded by beautiful forest.

The Lanna Language litter picking project forms part of the overall CSR strategy of Lanna Language School whom believe in the importance of giving back to the communities of which are enjoyed by locals of Chiang Mai as well as visitors to the region.  Ban Khun Chang Khian is an idyllic village but under environmental stress due to large numbers of people visiting and limited resources.  The litter picking event is a small way to give something back to the community in a fun yet meaningful way.  Lanna Language School and Thai Eco Solutions would like to thank all those who participated and supported the event and look forward to hosting more events in the coming months!
