INVEST IN INNOVATION: Encouraging water sustainability in Thailand

INVEST IN INNOVATION: Encouraging water sustainability in Thailand | Sustainable Innovation by beta|ideas | Scoop.it

" Hannarong has established the first citizen-based efforts to restore, conserve and ensure sustainable use of wetlands in Thailand as an alternative to large-scale dams and reservoirs. By working with beneficiaries of wetlands -- fishermen, clam diggers, and shrimp farmers -- to identify the economic potential of conservation, Hannarong’s work creates incentives for conservation while providing an economic opportunity for local communities."

COLLABORATION: Ashoka Support Network (ASN) member John J. Grumbar & Ashoka UK Fellow Junior Smart work together to increase impact | Sustainable Innovation by beta|ideas | Scoop.it

"It is only once at the bottom of a cell, looking at a 12-year sentence for high-profile drug offense at the age of 24, that Junior Smart was struck by the loneliness and helplessness of custody: “Where’s the support?” he asked the prison guards. Pushed by his natural empathy, charisma and leadership skills, Junior decided to turn his situation around to one of change making."
