Students at Technical Thalang College are now about to finish our two month environmental education course which in addition to improving their knowledge about a wide variety of environmental topics, has also improved their teamwork, presentation, and communication skills. We feel these students are now ready to take on their own Student Action Program to promote environmental awareness and bring their community together to help solve an environmental issue.
This week our first year students at Technique Talang College have voted and selected 2 team leaders from their class to lead them in researching, designing, and implementing two different Student Action Programs in their local community. Beginning of August the two groups of students will come up with a research goal and then design questionnaires and survey sheets accordingly for when they conduct their interviews and surveys in their local community. We are also greatful to have specialized staff from Indigo Pearl join us in the classroom next month to help train the students about the duties and responsibilities of the different management positions our students will be assigned, such as public relations and media, secretary, purchasing and finance, and safety and risk analysis team.

S.A.P. Program Ready to Begin
We have selected 2 groups of students from Technical Thalang College to participate in our S.A.P program. These students are 15 and 16 years in the field of Hotel Management. We will start the program beginning of August. For the first month students will have to design questionaires to interview local community members and survey the environmental problems in their community. After students return from their break in October they will have to finalize their environmental community-based project and implement it in November.
Below are pictures of the students that will participate in S.A.P. Here they are presenting their groups poster explaining why biodiversity is important to them in their lives.
