This description of Witoon Permpongsacharoen's work was prepared when Witoon Permpongsacharoen was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 1990.
Witoon Permpongsacharoen, the son of a village rice farmer from central Thailand, has played a central role in developing Thailand's now powerful environmental movement. He plans to follow the problems that are spreading out from the region's economic dynamo, Thailand, to the weak surrounding countries of Burma and Indochina and create an environmental movement for the whole ecosystem of mainland Southeast Asia.
