This description of Punya Chaiyakum's work was prepared when Punya Chaiyakum was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 1992.
Punya Chaiyakum, using his background as the environmental field's leading artist, is building a national movement of school-based environmental clubs for young Thais. His work is based on his belief that the seven to fourteen year old age group is the most open to understanding and ultimately lead Thailand to policies that will preserve its environment and endangered species.
