Head of Barge Program
Hello, my name is Lynda and I am from the UK. My experience in environmental sustainability stems from a love of nature and the outdoors and from many years working with Barge Program. I graduated from university with an education degree and spent subsequent years teaching in a London classroom. After some voluntary work in Thailand, I returned to work in the outdoor classroom, to excite and inspire students to make sustainable choices in their own lives. I enjoy sharing my knowledge with and learning from others. I am love having the forest, river or beach as my workplace.

Hello I am Miza. I come from Chiang Rai, the northern most province of Thailand.
I graduated with a Bachelor’s degree of Arts in English Program.
I was born in the countryside and grew up in a city of mountains. This made me love to travel and live with nature. I completed an internship with Traidhos Camp 2 years ago. It inspired me to learn more about environmental sustainability.
After I graduated from university. I have worked in an International School and did a lot of activities. I love to join outdoor activities and to challenge myself, so I decided to be a life long learner and develop my knowledge with Barge Program.
