Applying Knowledge and Experience from
IATSS Forum & Paying Forward to Community

Participant's Voices


  • Country : Thailand
  • Forum : 51st batch (2014 Spring Forum)
I was totally in a state of euphoria after IATSS Forum interview result had been announced. To be selected as a country representative joining the 51st IATSS Forum has truly brought me a marvelous sense of honor and a great opportunity to be treasured. According to the underlying forum’s motto “Thinking and Learning Together”, it gives me an impression that this program has prominently been well-designed to unleash change-making potential, sharpen cross-cultural understanding, and inspire collective action for a better future. Through a variety and comprehensive activities encompassing group study, seminars, and field studies, I believe that the IATSS Forum will significantly broaden my horizon. The exposure to Japan, a country praised for unique culture, spirit of people and leading development, will also provide me firsthand experience of Japanese development model to be adapted to Thailand’s context. I am certain that the coming 57 days of the IATSS Forum will be a precious journey where each participant can firstly actualize their own goals, accomplish individual dream, pursue each passion, and better contribution to their respective country and our community. Then let’s make it one of the most memorable chapters in our life. Looking forward to seeing you all soon!
