Greenpeace and community organizations in Prachuab Kirikhan and Chumbon Province, South of Thailand, representing thousands of people across Thailand, sealed and stored a time capsule to commemorate grassroots environmental movements. The Greenpeace Rainbow Warrior Turn the Tide Tour of Southeast Asia is joining community mobilizations throughout Thailand to call on the Thai Government to prioritize and support investments which will help put the country on a green development pathway, by technological leapfrogging with bold policy innovations and a new solidarity across social classes and generations.
