The Simple Life of Self-Reliance

Jon Jandai, Founder, Pun Pun Center of Self Reliance

30-Oct-17 15:00

The

Pun Pun, which translates from Thai to mean "a thousand varieties" is an organic farm cum learning center for sustainable living in Chiang Mai, Thailand. Founded by city worker turned farmer Jon Jandai, the Pun Pun Center of Self Reliance works very much against prevailing models, and focuses on simplicity, affordability, communal living and a shared sense of responsibility for each other's well-being. Jon himself gained an international following, after his TEDx talk "Life is easy. Why do we make it so hard?" went viral, having garnered over 6.2 million views and counting. He joins us to share his philosophy of living a simple life, and how that can benefit ourselves and the environment too.
