Leading Change - It starts with you

Chomp

A special 2 month exhibition, fund raising, education & awareness event. Raising funds and creating awareness about wildlife trafficking and the conservation of animals and the oceans. The event will also garner support for the organizations and people protecting biodiversity in Thailand and beyond.

CHOMP, a small comfort cafe and art gallery in Bangkok is hosting the event as an example of how anyone can be a direct part of Leading Change. No matter how big or small we may be, we all have the power to make and bring about conscious transformations. 

The whole affair will include a variety of awareness and fundraising activities which will engage the public and private sectors. We will be actively gaining support from local restaurants and business to buy products directly from the farms.

There will be nightly documentary screenings, special weekly occasions, talks, competitions and more, in both Thai and English. We are approaching local and international schools based in Bangkok to campaign to Lead Change by providing information and education which will be followed up by getting the children to help collect pledges from businesses to stop using Shark Fin products and make sustainable choices that benefit local communities and the environment.
