On 9th May 2013 at Saphan Hin Park in Muang Phuket, Mayor of Phuket City – Somjai Suwansupana presided over an activity which saw paper flower being planted around the park. The aim of the activity is to promote Phuket as a low carbon city.
Khun Somjai said “At present, the problem of global warming is a very serious issue which affects the lives the whole world’s population. Adding more green space is one way of helping solve global warming as trees filter pollution and produce oxygen. Reducing the temperature of the earth’s surface to at least 2 degrees Celsius will also help the global warming problem. It is one of our policies and environmental missions to develop Saphan Hin Park as a great place to relax. It is a place that we can adapt to help climate change, which will also enhance the beauty of Saphan Hin Park. The idea of planting these colorful paper flowers is to create awareness and also to make a good the impression for the people who come to visit here.
