CIEE High School Summer Abroad in Khon Kaen, Thailand – Environmental Awareness

Video and Photos


While often considered the poorest and most rural region of the country, Khon Kaen is changing rapidly due to large-scale development projects, ranging from hydroelectric dams to mining to forest harvesting. With development comes air and water pollution, as well as the potential for long-lasting effects on the health of people and the environment itself. Protection from such hazards – and access to clean air and water – can be framed as a matter of human rights.

Enjoy forming friendships with roommates, and joining in fun program-sponsored cultural activities. Chat with villagers to get their take on how development influences human rights and the environment. Your stay culminates with an unforgettable two-day Environmental English Camp, where students and villagers put into action the lessons you helped create.
