|English||This book is a training tool for capacity development initiatives aimed at educators on rural development, and planners. It is also a useful tool for university professors, students and researchers of the agriculture rural development and education sectors.
This book illustrates the “Rural Ecology and Agriculture Livelihoods” (REAL) in Thailand.
It is an integrated learning process in which children explore what is happening on local farms, gain an understanding of ecology and develop critical thinking skills for addressing environmental, health and social problems; additionally, they grow up in the real world, bridging school and the rural world. The process of getting students out of the classroom and into local fields can break down barriers between schools and rural communities and encourage inter-generational learning and relevance of the curriculum to the needs of rural people.
