Local Host

A welcome message

It’s a wonderful pleasure to be your local host of the 2018 Joint Conference of ACEAI and ICSSM conference here in Chiang Mai. Firstly please allow me to extend a very warm welcome, or as they say locally “Sawadee Krub” to all of the participants and attendees. I sincerely hope all of you to have not only an inspirational and stimulating event in these few days, but also to take the time and opportunity to explore all the wonders this city has to offer.

2018 is an exciting year for the city of Chiang Mai, fresh off the heels of her recent designation as a UNESCO Creative City of Crafts and Folk Art, which was announced by UNESCO Director General Irina Bokova on the 31st of October 2017. Together with a total of 116 cities in 54 countries around the world, we are now a part of the ‘Creative City’ network. Even though it was a daunting task, with many challenges along the way, but with the support and contribution of numerous locals, institutions and organisations, this collective effort have been rewarded and as a result there is a renewed sense of energy and spark that is quietly transforming the city. This exciting accolade hopefully will serve as a beacon for a more sustainable and inclusive development of Chiang Mai in the years ahead.   

Education, research and training played and continue to play a critical role in this process; and it is through events such as this where it facilitates a platform for us practitioners, educators, researchers and the wider educational community to come together, in order to share, exchange and foster new knowledge.

I look forward to meeting you all in Chiang Mai soon.
