Day 2 : Coachnesia Gets Hands Dirty for Change at the Erickson World Game Thailand


The World Game Thailand continues to spark inspiration, and Coachnesia, Vanaya Indonesia's vibrant community, is right in the thick of it! After an exciting day one opening of the World Game by Erickson, day two took a fascinating turn – a beach cleanup with a twist!


Imagine transforming trash into treasure. That's the ingenious concept that took center stage on May 7th at The World Game. Participants, including Coachnesia's enthusiastic contingent, weren't just picking up litter; they were embarking on a mission to breathe new life into discarded plastic, glass, and other beach debris.


The Purpose Of The Beach Cleanup


The focus? Repurposing. Everything collected on the cleanup wasn't destined for a landfill; it was earmarked for a remarkable transformation. 


Plastic bottles might become colorful planters, while discarded flip-flops could be reinvented as stylish wallets. The possibilities were endless, fueled by creativity and a desire to tackle plastic pollution head-on.

But the initiative didn't stop at repurposing. The second phase involved empowering local communities. Coachnesia, alongside other participants, received training on how to equip people around the beach areas with the skills to not only create these unique products but also market and sell them effectively. This creates a sustainable solution – a way to not just clean the beaches but also generate income for local residents.

Tourists get a chance to take home a piece of transformed beach waste, a reminder of their visit and a symbol of environmental responsibility, while local communities gain a means to improve their livelihoods.


By providing training and fostering an entrepreneurial spirit, The World Game isn't just promoting a clean coastline; it's building a path towards a brighter future for coastal communities. 


Coachnesia's participation in this initiative is a testament to their commitment to creating positive change that extends far beyond the beach cleanup itself. Their experience at The World Game Thailand goes beyond attending a conference; it's an opportunity to learn, collaborate, and implement solutions that can have a real impact on the lives of people and the health of our planet.
