ASEF Green Action in Bangkok
The Asia-Europe Foundation (ASEF) with its co-organisers promotes the ASEF Green Action initiative by organising a 3-day workshop followed by a Bag4Bag Action on Sunday 2 June 2013 at Chatuchak weekend market. This activity is ASEF’s contribution to raise awareness on the harmful effects of plastic on the environment.

Prior to the Action day, a workshop on environmental awareness, campaigning, and social communication will be organised to empower 15 selected youth participants. They are the core group who will be responsible to collect volunteers as well as plan and implement interactive and creative bag-swaps during the action day.

Estimated 80-100 volunteers will join on the action day on June
2nd between 3-5pm at the busy and robust Chatuchak weekend market. The action day will be started by silently stand and hold hands and showcase for by-passers our messages printed on the t-shirts and the ecological bags.

Afterwards the volunteers will be divided into three groups to exchange the bags and later gather again and tie the plastic bags together reflect the amount of collected plastic through the swap. All collected materials in the day will be donated to an organisation in exchange for trees to be planted.

The ASEF Green Action initiative is a follow-up to the 18th ASEF University, themed ‘Conscious Consumers for Environmental Sustainability’ in August 2012 in Tartu, Estonia. In close cooperation with AU18 participants, bag exchanges along with other activities will take place in Thailand and 6 other Asian and European countries.

The ASEF Green Action in Bangkok is coordinated by AU18 participant, Ms Nathalie Sajda, Ms Pimwipa Vatanutanon, and co-organised by ASEF, A-chieve, The Sync, and Thai Volunteer Service (TVS).
The ASEF University offers opportunities for promising students and young professionals from the 49 Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM) countries, to explore current issues in various fields through a 2-week programme of lectures and participatory activities.
