Air pollution is something that most people in Asia confront on a daily basis, and the problems that it causes are only getting worse.

In light of the battle against bad air, the FCCT, with the help of UN Environment, is organizing a panel discussion on air pollution in Asia, which will coincide with Clean Air Week (March 19 to 23).

The FCCT is bringing together a diverse range of panelists that will shed light on the persistent problems we all face as we are countering smog in Bangkok and northern Thailand, and many other cities throughout Asia and around the globe.

Our guests for the evening include:


Helena Molin Valdes, head of the Climate and Clean Air Coalition;

Tara Buakamsri, Thailand Country Director, Greenpeace Southeast Asia;

Dr. Supat Wangongwatana, former head of the Thai Pollution Control Department;

Dia Mirza, Bollywood actor, producer, entrepreneur and UN Environment Goodwill Ambassador;

Vijay Sharma, CEO of Paytm and UN Environment Clean Air Patron;

Mark Lin, Mobike head of international operations; and

Seoul University Professor Yun-Chul Hong, chair of the Asia Pacific Air Pollution Solution report.

Please join us for what promises to be an insightful and informative evening.

A limited dinner menu will be available.
