Banpu’s Power Green Students Explore Biodiversity in Indonesia Building on 10th Power Green Camp’s Studies of Environmental Science
Banpu Public Company Limited, led by Ms. Udomlux Olarn (5th from right), Head of Corporate Affairs, and the Faculty of Environment and Resource Studies, Mahidol University, led by Associate Professor Rattanawat Chaiyarat (far right), President of the 10th Power Green Camp, recently hosted three students on an educational trip to Indonesia to study in depth about Indonesia’s flora and fauna, the second largest biodiversity in the world. The students also explored Banpu’s mining management, community development projects, biodiversity project and mine rehabilitation program — all with a commitment to sustainability, preserving the surrounding environment while enhancing the livelihood of the local communities.
This biodiversity excursion was awarded to the students for their outstanding efforts as a further study of the 10th Power Green Camp organized in October 2015 under the theme of ‘Biodiversity for Environmental Development and Sustainability.’ The camp is created for Thai students to develop their environmental science perspective to an international level with a ‘Learning Through Actions’ experience that encourages students to learn about biodiversity, a key international issue vital to environmental regeneration and a country’s sustainable development, while also cultivating skills essential for further study, life, and career options.
