Coral reefs are not only a tourist attraction that contributes to the growth of Thailand’s economy but they also have important functions in coastal ecosystems. Mainly, coral reefs provide habitats for many marine organisms and protect coastlines from the damaging effects of wave and tropical storms. Participating in coral planting activity is therefore one way to raise all of the participants’ awareness about environmental preservation and ensure that the shore is kept intact for future generations.

MBA Conducts 1st CSR Project in Honor of His Majesty
Nov 20 2016

For more than a decade, our late King Bhumibol Adulyadej sought ways to protect, conserve and expand mangrove forests due to his concerns regarding the increase in forest encroachment and his belief in the ecological benefits of mangrove forests.

To follow our late King’s initiative on conservation and development of mangrove forests, MBA students, lecturers and staff members participated in a mangrove planting activity and a visit to a local community in Klong Kone, Samut Songkram on November 19, 2016 to learn more about the self-sufficient way of life.

MBA Conducts 1st CSR Project in Honor of His Majesty
The Klong Kone community mangrove conservation center was established in 1991 to reforest an ecologically damaged area and help restore livelihood in a mangrove forest, coastal ecosystem and marine animals. During the first three years of the project, many problems occurred. Nonetheless, with the royal grace of HRH Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn—who also viewed mangrove reforestation as an important issue and visited Klong Kone many times during 1997-2004—this area was revitalized and provided many self-sufficient occupations for villagers living along the coast such as fishing, catering, kra-tang or shell farm huts, boat trip services, cork tree planting, and others.

The “Walk in the Footsteps of Our Father,” the first CSR project organized by the MBA program, would embed a sense of social responsibility, enhance awareness of the importance of mangrove forest conservation, and create a passion to contribute to the health and welfare of local community to all attendees. Most importantly, it would stimulate the participants’ realization, understanding and ultimately adherence to the “Philosophy of Sufficiency Economy” initiated by our beloved late King Bhumibol Adulyadej.

During the visit, students learned about the company’s operations management, products, strategies to become a business leader, economic-related issues, and CSR activities through a presentation, a walk through the wine cellars, and a visit to a demonstration vineyard.

The real life example of business management by visiting companies outside the university increases the students’ understanding of and exposure to curriculum-related topics and also strengthens their life-long learning.
