Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2003
Thai Youth News Center Association
This description of Weera Suwannachote's work was prepared when Weera Suwannachote was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2003.
With a television in virtually every Thai home, the mainstream media can play an important role in raising the voice of underrepresented groups and bringing social issues into public discussion. Weera Suwannachot is now putting this powerful tool in the hands of youth by creating a school-based pool of young news reporters trained and linked to produce professional segments on youth issues for broadcast on regional and national television networks.
