Mahidol University International College (MUIC) signed recently a Memorandum of Agreement and a Memorandum of Understanding with several organizations as part of supporting the Sustainable Bangkok Campaign, a project of the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (UNESCAP).
Assoc. Prof. Phitaya Charupoonphol, MUIC Dean, signed the two documents—binding MUIC with the Faculty of Environment and Resource Studies of Mahidol University, the Thailand Youth Media Network, and Asia-Pacific Peace and Development Service Alliance—on November 11, 2015 in Bangkok to “create and develop a better and more sustainable society and environment for the city of Bangkok” through the Sustainable Bangkok Campaign, a multi-sectoral undertaking that will promote a “cleaner, greener, and safer city environment through creative activities by youth volunteer and media presence.”
Several MUIC faculty and staff members also attended the event. Some 24 MUIC students, meanwhile, underwent training for this campaign.
