Dr. Kanjana Sommit has more than 12 years of research experience on alternative tourism such as voluntourism, gastronomy, community-based, and old-town conservation tourism. Tourism marketing and social entrepreneurship are also the fields she experiences. As a social science academic, she believes that tourism will be a crucial tool to communicate and connect the community and visitors to learn and respect each other, enrich the culture and local wisdom, and preserve biodiversity.

She earned a doctorate in Business Administration.  She got two master’s degrees in teaching English as a Foreign Language and Business Administration (Entrepreneurship). She earned a B.A. in French Language from Chiang Mai University.  

In this session, she will share fruitful experiences on how to make more value of the local plants and unwanted plants; the value-added process; and how to communicate and market under the topic of “The Forgotten Plants and Local Economy: An Experiential Gastronomy Tourism, Thailand”.
