The World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) aims to conserve nature and ecological processes by preserving biodiversity, ensuring sustainable use of natural resources and promoting the reduction of pollution and wasteful use of resources and energy.  WWF works in more than 100 countries 
around the world.  WWF has been working in Thailand since 1983 and WWF-Thailand was founded in 1995. 


“No Plastic in Nature” initiative of WWF was launched in 2018 with the aim of stopping plastic leakage from land-based sources into nature by 2030.  The regional project is being implemented in five Southeast Asian countries namely Indonesia, the Philippines, Vietnam, Hong Kong and Thailand. 
As one of its key pillars, the key objective of Plastic Smart Cities (PSC) is to reduce plastic leakage at the city-level by 30%. 


A Plastic Smart Cities Project in Thailand, financially supported by TV-Action and NORAD, is implemented in the 4 cities in the Southern region of Thailand.  The project will focus on reducing plastic leakage to nature in 4 major cities in Thailand Surat Thani, Hat Yai, Songkla and Koh Samui.  
The combined jurisdiction of these cities comprises more than 1,000 sq.km. and is home to more than 420,000 residents. These cities were prioritized because of their significant contribution to plastic pollution, their close proximity to key major marine protected areas and coastal ecosystems 
featuring outstanding marine biodiversity, and for their strong commitment to address the issue of plastic pollution. 


The implementation phase includes close collaboration with 1) municipalities in the 4 pilot cities, in particular, developing effective policies to reduce single use plastic  and ensuring equal access to state improved waste management services, 2) schools, where efforts will be directed towards 
integrating comprehensive waste management education into the curriculum, fostering a culture of sustainability and waste reduction among students, 3) business sectors to implement the usage of alternative materials to decrease the usage of single-use plastic, 4) communities by intensively 
working at the household level to raise awareness on basic solid waste management systems based on five principal themes: sanitary aspects, social concerns, environmental considerations, urban structure, and economic circumstances, including waste-related problems in cities  The overall objective of the project is to reduce plastic pollution by 30% in 4 major cities in Thailand by 2024. The action will focus on reducing plastic pollution through establishing clear policy, 

strengthening community awareness to reduce plastic consumption, installing effective waste collection in the community and establishing plastic recycling entrepreneurship.  The plan is designed to create collaboration and partnership between communities and local administrative agencies, the 
business sector, NGOs, universities, and academic institutions in the pilot areas.  
The specific objective of the project is to proactively diminish the prevalence of single-use plastics within school environments. By fostering a culture of awareness, implementing stringent policies, enhancing waste management infrastructure, integrating eco-friendly practices into the curriculum, 
and actively engaging the school community, we aim to establish a sustainable and Plastic-free learning environment. This initiative seeks to instill a sense of environmental responsibility among students, educators, administrators and stakeholders while contributing to broader efforts in 
creating a greener and healthier school environment.
