International Environmental Education Day 26th January 2018 at Baan Rachawadee Ying
1st yearly Calendar Event for 2018 in Thailand: International Environmental Education Day 26th January 2018 at Baan Rachawadee Ying.
Purpose: Every January 26th International Environmental Education Day is celebrated around the world. 2018 is the 46th official celebration of the day which originates from the Declaration of the United Nations Conference on Human Environment held in Stockholm, Sweden, June 1972, in which it outlined the need for criteria and common principles to offer the people of the world inspiration and guidance for preserving and enhancing the environment.
Environmental Education is a dynamic and participatory process that seeks to awaken people’s awareness that allows environmental problems to be identified both at a general (global) and a specific level (local environment).
It seeks to identify relationships and independence of interactions that occur between the environment and man, seeking to promote a harmonious relationship between natural and human activities through sustainable development, all with the purpose to ensure the sustainability and quality of current and future generations.
International Environmental Education Day; to encourage and share this important day – allow interactions between people and children of all ages and the resident girls at the Baan Rachawadee Ying home for mentally and physically handicapped orphans.
To raise funds towards a much needed recycling centre for the home and additional funds raised before and during the event, will go towards their new Physio Therapy Centre – the cost of the new PT Building is estimated at 25 million THB / approx $75,000
The home’s old PT house is very small and half of it is collapsing to the extent they have no access to the small water therapy bath previously in use and not enough space to work with many of their 500 children in need of daily treatments.
