5th International Agricultural Camp

International Agricultural Camp: GREEN ENERGY

5th International Seminar and Workshop on

Vocational Education of Agriculture Teachers and Students

19th – 31st August 2012


        The Vocational Education Commission has been one of five main organizations in Ministry of Education dealing with learning and teaching on Vocational Education and training careers for the people all over the country and focusing on knowledge and skills in the careers the people need and the market needs.  This fact is according to Thailand developing plan of economy and society. 

        Nowadays many countries have been developed to the industrial world especially technology  And communication.  While the industries have been increased, the air pollution has been increased all the times.  About 40% of Thai people have been farmers and Thailand also has been the country exporting Agricultural products for sale around the world in the early range of the world especially rice and rubber.  Thus, Agriculture is essential to develop accordance with other economies. The curriculum is based on practical work and direct experiences from learning on farm or in the workplace before graduation.  Because of this, the students will be convinced in his or her career as farmers constantly in the future.

The Vocational Education Commission has realized the above importance and would like to perform the project of 5h International Agricultural Camp on the theme of “Green Energy” for teachers and students from the field of Agriculture from many countries.  This is the fifth time that we try to bring in teachers and students from the field of Agriculture from many countries sharing their own experiences on academy and culture and solving the problems together.  They will have a chance to share experience and learn through group work, lectures, fieldtrips, etc. Moreover, the Thai Agricultural students have a chance to enhance their experience and development of English communication.


2. Objectives

  1. To create the experiences on learning exchange, and good relationship between the members participating in the project
  2. To exchange learning on good morals, customs and traditions each other
  3. To exchange learning on vocational agriculture education of the members participating in the project from many countries
  4. To be the guideline for the cooperation in the management of vocational education between many countries in the future


3. Green Energy

        Green energy is energy that is produced in a manner that has less of a negative impact to the environment than energy sources like fossil fuels, which are often produced with harmful side effects. It would be interested to see this energy from the agricultural communities/academics in this field.  We would like to learn how the Agricultural teachers and students in your country have succeeded in green energy.


       Theme discussion/Country report: It doesn’t have to be something complicated.          It could be something very simple and easy.  What your community/country is doing.  Prepare to present to the group for about 30 – 45 minutes.  You will have to do the country report either on 20th or 21st.  It’s nice to prepare your country report in advance and have it in paper for the host.

        This is the fifth time that we try to bring in students from the regions who share similar problems and difficulties as well as their knowledge and skills together.  This International Agricultural Camp will be the learning place for them, in which they will have the chance to share, experience, and network, learn from the program through lectures, fieldtrips, observation, etc. The solid foundation in theory and practice will qualify them to be better human resources in this field which allows them to have enough skills to be further developed.  Besides, participants will be able to develop their communication skills in English and exchange cultures with other participants.
