Grant Pereira has been actively involved in environmental and social issues for more than 30 years. 12 years ago, he founded The Green Volunteers [http://www.thegreenvolunteers.blogspot.com] with less than 50 volunteers. Today, it has more than 5,000 volunteers and they have planted more than 250,000 trees in the ASEAN region.
Pereira is also actively involved in the conservation of the Asian elephants and the highly endangered orangutans. He brings both volunteers and schools on working and learning trips to Thailand and they help hilltribes in northern Thailand by building schools, libraries and water tanks on a regular basis. On the social front, he has an on-going Free Burma campaign (free posters will be available at the talk).
This talk offers a rare chance to hear Pereira share his countless experiences and insights regarding the activism work he has done over the years.
