MODULE 19 – Exploring and Experiencing Practical Hands-on Work

 

2nd-4th January 2018 (5 days) in N Thailand

 

Module Description:

To experience hands-on work is one of the best ways to learn the practical dimension of eco-community reconstruction. Nong Tao is an indigenous ‘Pagagayaw’ (Northern Thai indigenous ethnic group) community in transition within the context of a modernizing Thai society. However, with Elders aware of the negative aspects of modernity, the younger generation are coming back to reconstruct their life with more awareness and more courage to choose the direction of their community, based on their own cultural values. A learning centre was created as a starting point, and there is a lot of potential to contribute to the future vision of the community. During this module, participants will join hands with local youth leaders to participate in local economic activities and the regeneration of their community.
