According to Minister of Education Pol Gen Permpoon Chidchob, the benefits of being part of the UNESCO GNLC include the chance for Thailand to join a vibrant network that provides guidance and support for the development of learning cities. This membership also opens doors for the country to propose hosting international or regional conferences and makes the country eligible for the biennial UNESCO Learning City Award.



With the recent inclusion, Thailand’s representation in the UNESCO GNLC has expanded to 10 cities, joining the ranks of Chiang Rai, Chiang Mai, Phuket, Chacheongsao, Sukhothai, Phayao, and Hat Yai, which were added between 2019 and 2022. (NNT)
