Chiang Rai is an ancient large city in northern Thailand with famous temples and interesting festivals. It is recently (July 2019) selected as one of the learning cities under UNESCO Global Network of Learning Cities. Congratulations from International U3A-Signpost and U 3rd Age, Singapore.
U3A-Nakorn Chiangrai was set up in 2017 and has over 3,000 members as active volunteers in social community works today. It has a strong support of local Chiang Rai Municipal to encourage active ageing activities. Dr. Gumpanat Boridoon (Srinakharinwirot University) led a 33-member delegation which included the Deputy Mayor Mr. Narongsak Tueansakun, President U3A-Chiang Rai Mrs. Ubolwan Saenmahayak, Board members and representatives from several government departments to visit U 3rd Age, Singapore to exchange notes on third agers activities. We are honoured to host them, and had the opportunity to arrange visits to our National Library Board (NLB) and the Urban Renewal Authority (URA), a national urban planning authority of Singapore. We look forward to more exchange visits with U3As in Asia.
