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.]

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).

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.

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.

RTC-TH Demonstration Farmkey

Lessons and articles on the demonstration farm to apply the King's Theory .  The key progams for this effort are  S.O.I.L (Saving Our Independent Livelihood) and P.L.A.N.T. (Personal Learning and Natural Teaching).  Many of the lessons for those programs are integrated with REEEPP (see next topic below).  It is also useful to visit the main website and look at the Index of the RTC-TH monthly update reports for more current information about the farm.
