On July 5th 2011 at 10.30 a.m. Mr.Paiboon Upatising, the President of Phuket Provincial Administrative Organization (PPAO) presided over the opening of the training for the 4th group of Environment and Natural Resource Preventing Volunteer training held Ban Kata School, Karon, Phuket.
The training aims to train people and youths in the community about rubbish management. PPAO will host the training for 6 sub0districts in Phuket. The target group of the training will be the students. For the training in Kata, there were 75 residents and students attended. The training was well supported by Phuket Natural Resource and Environment Office, Ban Kata School, the locals and the related government sectors. Mr.Paiboon said that “Phuket is the developing island. The large number of the residents on the island makes the large amount of rubbish. Some kind of rubbish can be recycled or reused, so it is important for everyone learning how to manage the rubbish from their residence efficiently. Besides, the trained people should convey their knowledge to the neighbor or people in their community to make the concrete rubbish management. Finally, I would like to thanks the instructors in this training, the training organizers, and everyone participating the training. I hope that this training will make every sector realize how important of rubbish management is”.
