Pattaya —

Pattaya Mayor Mr. Poramase Ngampiches presided over a tree planting ceremony to plant trees and engage in public activities in celebration of the past Thai National Tree Day on May 22nd.

The event, which took place on May 30th, was also part of the “Pattaya Moves Towards a Low Carbon City” project. The ceremony was attended by several members of the Pattaya City Council, citizens, and volunteers.

According to the city’s announcement, Pattaya City has been selected by the National Municipal League of Thailand and the European Union as one of 15 learning centers for the “Thai Municipality Moves Towards Low Carbon City” project.

The aim of the project is to encourage government agencies, educational institutions, businesses, communities, citizens, and tourists to help rehabilitate Pattaya’s natural resources and environment to make it a more sustainable city.

During the event, a total of 200 Yellow Star trees were planted in public areas around Pattaya. Ninety trees were planted at the Pattaya Klang public park, and the remaining trees would be planted at Khao Phra Yai at a later date.

In an interview with The Pattaya News, Mr. Poramase stated that the public park at the Pattaya Klang Intersection is one of Pattaya’s important green spaces. It provides a shady area for relaxation or family picnics. The mayor encouraged the public to dispose of their waste properly to maintain the cleanliness and orderliness of the park.
