Professor Dr. Kanchana Ngourungsi, president of Naresuan University, has a policy to increase the green area on campus. Naresuan University initiated the project by asking for donations from the NU population to plant Salao trees (Lagerstroemia loudoni Teijsm. & Binn), which is the signature tree of Naresuan University, and grass around the campus to promote a sustainable environment.
Naresuan University was proactive to initiate “Zero Shop” to implant good volunteering for the environment by the NU freshmen.
In the Academic Year 2016, the Student Affairs Division, Naresuan University initiated the project “Zero Shop” for managing waste on campus. The aim of this project is to implant good behaviors for a sustainable environment at NU. The Student Affairs Division, Naresuan University commenced the project “Zero Shop” with the concept of exchanging recycled waste occurring in daily life for things in the shop, such as soap, toothpaste, face powder, hair shampoo, and food to reduce the cost of living at NU.
