Residents from across Nongprue Sub-District joined to study how to create a more civil society.

Representatives from the Nong­prue communities met May 2 at Nongprue Municipality Kindergarten School for a seminar, the third in a series, focused on creating self-sufficient neighborhoods built on the philosophy of King Rama IX.

Speakers talked about creating a ‘social contract’ tying together the hearts of Thai people and leaving no one behind in community development. That means taking care of the poor and creating harmony.

The workshop also provided knowledge on local administration, democracy and combatting drugs.
