Thailand: Eco Learning Program for Environmental Learning Held


Four Panasonic Group companies in Thailand (Panasonic (Thailand) Co., Ltd. /PTHC, Panasonic Motor (Thailand) Co., Ltd. /PMRTH, Panasonic Automotive Systems Asia Pacific Co., Ltd. /PASAP, and Panasonic Ecology Systems (Thailand) Co., Ltd. /PESTH) held an Eco Running Program (ELP) with 60 pupils from first to sixth grade at Want Khotha Ram Elementary School on February 7.

The program has been continuing for ten years since 2010 with the aim of raising environmental awareness among children. It teaches environmental issues and protection, and the importance of the Three Rs: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.

The children learned how to separate waste, and had a fun time working in groups in the workshop to build solar lamps, seeing how solar power can be accumulated to use as electricity. In this way the children gained a better understanding of the environment, and planted 72 flower seedlings to help improve the school's scenery.
