Chiang Mai Nayu is represented by a team of talented people that care about sustainability and Chiang Mai. Due to the intention and focus of the online dashboard being both broad but also specific, this attracts residents, both Thai and Foreign, to volunteer in an area (which we call Sustainability Indicator) that they are particularly interested in. Whether it be organic food, waste recycling, mental health or urban green spaces, each team member is drawn to what they are most interested in.
At this phase of Chiang Mai Nayu, there is a particular focus on researching and understanding the ‘baseline’ of each indicator. What exactly is the situation and status of Chiang Mai with regards to each specific ‘indicator’. Where are we today? Our aim is to aggregate the ‘trend data’ about that specific indicator so we actually know in which direction the city is heading. Trend data, is data that is collected over several previous years or even decades, for example for air quality.
As a team, we believe when actively working together with the same values, vision and mindset, we become powerful citizens to have a positive impact within the community. Nature, Economy, Society and Wellbeing are the four key dimensions of sustainability that we are focused upon to co-create a liveable flourishing city, where everyone has good life of standards and respect for each other and nature.
