Thai Environment Day

Since 1991, December 4th has been Thai Environment Day in Thailand. Not to be confused with World Environment Day, June 5th. Thailand want to do their bit to protect the world. The day is designed to promote awareness of environmental and green issues.

It is no coincidence that Thai Environment Day takes place one day before the Kings Birthday. In a discussion at his Royal Palace on December 4th 1989, King Bhumibol Adulyadej discussed enviromental issues in Thailand. He was worried about the future of his country and asked for the cooperation of everyone to solve the problems Thailand may face. After this discussion, Thai Environment Day was set up by the Ministry of Science, Technology & Environment. The first official Thai Environment Day was recognised in 1991.

There does not seem to be a huge awareness of Thai Environment Day in the Khao Lak area. However, we hope this will begin to change. We are reaching out to any Khao Lak companies that have an event to promote Thai Environment Day. Please submit your event to us and we will be more than happy to feature it.
