EPISODE 4 is live and online!

In this episode, Green Riders: Southeast Asia are invited to join Peace Corps volunteer Julia Schulteis at Din Udom, the cluster of villages where she works in Krabi province, Thailand. We get to check out an incredible playground, built entirely by the community, out of old tires. After, we cycle a few kilometers to the neighbouring village, and spend the afternoon working with the community to plant trees in their school's playground, to create shady outdoor learning spaces. A completely empowering window into how a couple small rural communities are coming together to enrich the environment and lives of their children. Wow. Seriously... Wow.

Story
Tagline
Thailand to Bali. By Bike.
Introduction

Six weeks. Two bikes. A camera. A continent of environmental stories, struggles and successes. Plus, several thousand kilometers of twisted little roads stringing it all together. Welcome to GREEN RIDERS: Southeast Asia.

From June 2012 Kenny and Jamie will journey by bike and other sustainable means from Phuket, Thailand to Bali, Indonesia. Along the way we’ll be exploring Southeast Asia’s wealth of biodiversity, and meeting with groups and individuals involved in its protection and destruction. Plus, making connections with communities to learn more about their conservation efforts and promoting environmental education and action to protect the region’s threatened natural gems.

Follow us on this blog, through our TwitterFacebook and Pinterest feeds. Most of all, watch our ongoing video serials on this blog and our YouTube channel!

GREEN RIDERS is a project of the Environmental Education Alliance of South East Asia (EEASEA).
