September 25, 2020 marked the fifth year of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) created by the United Nations (UN). To celebrate the anniversary and moving towards the “Decade of Action,” five students from Mahidol University International College (MUIC) were invited to the Embassy of the Netherlands in Thailand to celebrate and discuss what is to come.
The students were Ms. Natnisha Ahuja, who is taking up Marketing major, and Ms. Pannita Taechamaneesatit, Ms. Parncheewa Phuchayapol, Ms. Chotiphat Yuenwong, Mr. Phumiphat Eiambutlop, Ms. Arisara Saengsompong, and Mr. Titipat Wanlopbanhan who are enrolled in the International Relations and Global Affairs major.
Along with Ambassador Kees Rade and United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) Regional Director Mr. Renaud Meyer, the students discussed missions and visions for the SDGs here in Thailand. They also talked about youth empowerment. To wrap up the event, the students along with the two officials gathered around the garden of the residence to raise the SDGs flag together.
