Head of the Office of the ISOC, Deputy Director Gen Chanathip Boonnak led the press announcement for “Joining in Love and Unity for the Nation”, a program that involves six ministries and 14 agencies and is aimed at transforming conflict into progress and unity into careers. The effort is tied to the 20 year national strategy and seeks social cohesion under the Sufficiency Economy Philosophy as well as to strengthen communities. The agencies involved in the effort organized booths to promote their work at the press event. Activities put on a display including a lunch program using the Sufficiency Economy Philosophy at Woradit Wittaya Prasut School in Ang Thong province and a career training program for students at Baan Khlong Luang School in Samut Prakan province. The latter project came about due to conflict between the community and a tanning facility in the area.
