Active School Thailand

Active School Thailand project was designed to increase physical activity and reduce screen time and sedentary behaviour of Thai children which affect the learning process and school children’s development in the participating schools.

The project is currently on the 3rd year of implementation, with several pilot schools are involved in different model and stages of implementation. The project is now undertaking the monitoring and effectiveness analysis of the program on the five dimensions of children’s development including physical, emotional, social, communication skills, cognitive and their academic performance.

Baseline Study of Fruit and Vegetable Eating Behavior and Determinants in Thai People

This nationally representative baseline household study focuses on surveying behaviors and individual and environmental influences of Thai children and adults on fruit and vegetable consumption. A total of approximately 8,000 Thais from 3,720 households were surveyed. This baseline information will help stakeholders to gain deeper understanding of fruit and vegetable eating behaviors and related factors in Thais, and guide their decision making for appropriate action planning.

The Child Ecology of Thai Z-Alpha Generation

‘Let’s make Thailand a better place for children to grow up’

The Child Ecology of Thai Z-Alpha Generation

This study investigates the interplaying effects of the environments at home (1st place), school (2nd place), and places other than home and school (offline and online) (3rd place) on the generation Z-Alpha’s attitudes and behaviors. This generation, born during 2004-2023, is the youngest generation who will grow up to lead the society in the coming decades. Their characters and quality will determine the ways of the Thai’s future society and economy. The findings from this study will be the important inputs to the design and suggestion of the relevant interventions.
