CityNews – On March 7, General Surasak Kanchanarat, minister of Natural Resources and Environment, was invited to open the meeting of LA21 network to promote a greener society.

The meeting was a cooperation between Department of Environmental Quality Promotion and Ministry Natural Resources and Environment, with more than 1,000 people from many environmental networks around Thailand in attendance.
Surasak said that due to the imbalance between economic development and greener development, natural resources are still being used up at a faster than sustainable rate. Global warming is also a serious issue as a result of this.
The meeting is being held over several days at the Lotus Pang Suan Kaew hotel from March 6 – 9.
There are also exhibitions and a platform open for free exchange of ideas related to green global development.
