Building Communities #2 / Bangkok, Thailand / 2007

There are an estimated one billion people living in unsuitable conditions around the world.  An operational definition of a slum is an area that combines, to various extents, the following characteristics; inadequate access to safe water, inadequate access to sanitation and other infrastructure, poor structural quality of housing, overcrowding, insecure residential status, and low socio-economic status of its residents.  There are a large amount of people living in informal settlements in Bangkok. The city boundary is continually expanding due to the increasing number of cars on the road, forcing the vulnerable to live further away from their livelihoods. The workshop aimed to explore sustainable and inclusive grassroots action, to enable communities in the design and reformation of their environments.
