LAGS / ESSI / RTC-TH International Volunteer Projects

The RTC-TH began as an international volunteer project in northern Thailand under the auspices of the Los Angeles Geographical Society (which allowed the use of its name and non-profit status to raise funds for the initial project in 1999).  It was this conducted as a Earth Systems Science, Inc. international environmental volunteer project.  As the project succeeded and expanded, it was spun off as a separate entity   [Status: Currently there is no active LAGS or ESSI collaborative activities with the RTC-TH.  “New” postings to this archive may occur as past project materials are recovered and archived.  All RTC-TH operations have ceased.]

Community-based Education (Cb-E)

This teaching /  learning approach supplements traditional classroom education.  Cb-E empowers individuals and families to take an active role in their education and that of their children.  The methods involves making learning a life-long process and encourages learning by teaching back (sharing what you learned with others). [Status: The Cb-E program and activities have been transferred to Applied Geography for Sustainable living in collaboration with Sustainable Early Education Development System (S.E.E.D.S.) a 501c3 educational non-profit.]  FFI: AppGeog4SL@gmail.com

Applied Geography

Geography is the core foundation for the RTC-TH and its diverse lessons.  Geography is not a well understood discipline.  The Geographic Systems Model is a systematic approach to seeing the world and leads to insights of the inter-relationships of natural phenomena to improve our view and appreciation of the environment. [Status: The RTC-TH Applied Geography program and activities have been transferred to Applied Geography for Sustainable living in collaboration with Sustainable Early Education Development System (S.E.E.D.S.) a 501c3 educational non-profit.]  FFI: AppGeog4SL@gmail.com

Emergency Preparedness (EmPrep)

The section is an application of Geography for geo-hazards perception and preparing for natural disasters.  Examples for these lessons are drawn from the local area of northern rural Thailand in the vicinity of our demonstration farm.  [Status: transferred to GECO 2016.  GECO has assumed responsibility to maintain and update the previously published RTC-TH EmComm materials.]
