Somchai Sirorath, director of the Technical Promotion Support Office 3, talked about programs for youths in Sriracha, Banglamung, Sattahip and Koh Sichang districts, which cover 26 municipalities, to learn about programs to prevent unwanted pregnancies.
The programs, he said, also stress the importance of older students sharing knowledge and experience with younger kids. He also reviewed activities supported by the Ministry of Social Development and Human Security, the Chonburi Provincial Administration Organization and other organizations.
Committee members from 4 school districts and other municipalities took part in the meeting and presentation.
The final session covered world views through the lens of the AEC, covering education, culture, climate and drugs.
In education, ASEAN countries are struggling with overcrowded classrooms. One strategy to solve this would be to extend internship periods, expand educational opportunities both within and outside the country and improve and educate communication in languages of the ASEAN countries.
On drugs, the key is education, lecturers said, so youths understand their dangers.
