Ways of Life and Renewable Energy
Ways of Life and Renewable Energy
Ban (village) Fang Khlong is a vast area for mono-crop plantation. Encroachment of natural forest to acquire more area has been a major problem. In order to maximize the yield,small tractors ,other types of machinery and appliances have been introduced into the community, replacing the traditional animal and manual labour. In order to make these sets of equipment work, various kinds of fossil fuel have to be burnt thus producing more green house gas into the atmosphere.

The centre whose majority of members are local people with eagerness to better the community life has realizes the problem and its consequence has initiated the Ways of Life and Renewable Energy as a pilot project for the community so that renewable energy would become a sensible and good option for community livelihood.
