Compass Youth Camp (CYC) 2017 Facilitator Team

 

NAIA (Head of Youth Facilitator)
After two years of training, I am excited to take on the new challenge of head facilitator at this year’s CYC. Working with Compass Education to develop a better understanding of sustainability has helped me see the world differently, and with this knowledge I feel that I have grown into a more mindful and aware individual. I believe that through systems thinking, everyone has the ability to create change that can help move society towards sustainability. By being introduced to methods of systems thinking, and learning how to tackle issues with those methods it becomes possible to solve complex issues and move toward dynamic equilibrium.
The greatest value of CYC comes from working together to deepen our understanding and use of these methods. I look forward to envisioning a more sustainable future together as peers.

KOH (Youth Facilitator)
Hey guys! My name is Koh, and I’m a Japanese student studying in Prem Tinsulanonda International School in Thailand. My school is actually where the camp is taking place at this year. I first attended the CYC camp 2 years ago as an attendee and then last year as a media intern, so I’m confident enough to say that I know the camp well. I also know that you guys will have a lot of fun :) I’m a very cheerful and approachable guy so don’t be shy when the you meet me and I am sure we’ll get along well.

RASNAM (Youth Facilitator)
My name is Rasnam, and I am currently a student at Prem Tinsulanonda International School in Chiang Mai and I will be a facilitator at the CYC 2017. I am a Thai-Indian, born and raised in Bangkok, Thailand. I decided to leave home to attend a boarding school 3 years ago in Chiang Mai. My friends would describe me as friendly and outgoing as I enjoy getting to know people and making new friends. I attended the compass youth camp in Chiang Mai last year which sparked my interest in sustainability, since then I have been trying to take a more active role in my community. Other than that I enjoy reading and playing the piano, as well as travelling. An interesting fact about me, I speak 5 languages, English (of course), Thai, Hindi, Punjabi, and I am currently studying French. I look forward to attending the camp and meeting like minded campers from all over the world.

ABHINAV (Youth Facilitator)
I believe sustainability is instrumental to leading a better life for out future generations, and it looks at the world and its problems in a more holistic way.
Hobbies – Cooking, Drumming, Rugby and Badminton
Interesting Fact – I have a black belt in Tae Kwon Do

NORITO (Media Facilitator)
I will be a media facilitator at CYC this year. I’m 16, I was born in Japan but was raised in the U.S. and now live as a boarding student at PREM. I care about sustainability because it’s our future, with the world going through global warming we have to try to do everything we can to stop it and I believe that sustainability is the main response. I went to the CYC camp last year in 2016 so I have experience in all the tools that the students will be learning this year. I will also be taking videos and photos during the whole camp to put onto different sites that CYC is on as well as help lead activities that are related to the compass tools. An interesting fact about me is that I’ve finished 6 marathons, my first one being when I was 6. I look forward to seeing all of the new people that are coming who are interested in sustainability this year.
