IMPRESSIONS OF ECOPRENEURS

WHAT’S ECOPRENEUR?

WHY ECOPRENEURS?

Thailand’s coastline evokes images of white, sandy beaches. However Coastline Ecopreneur is designed to take you on a journey to Thailand’s less known coastal areas in Samut Songkhram, home to fishermen and local community enterprises in eco-tourism. After aqua culture and shrimp farming had destroyed much of the coastal mangrove forests and eco-systems in Samut Songkhram many people lost their traditional livelihood and moved to work in factories. In a turn of fate, a shrimp disease lead to the demise of many shrimp farms and local communities organized themselves to restore the mangrove forests and reconnect to their traditional way of life. Our aim is to take you out of the city to get up close with nature to learn about the benefits of sustainably living with local eco-resources and how tourism can play a role in adding value to the local economy. Exchange with local entrepreneurs and/or invite more people on the subject to understand the opportunities, importance and benefits of community enterprises, conservation and sustainable development goals in one soaky, breezy, epic adventure by the sea.
