Jon Jandai (Jo) co-founded Pun Pun Centre for Self-Reliance in northern Thailand. "During his younger days, Jon was drawn by the bright lights of big cities and left his family farm to seek the richness of Bangkok, but after a number of years there, he decided to return to his village." Pun Pun doubles as a centre for sustainable living and seed production, aiming to bring indigenous and rare seeds back into use. "We believe in learning by doing and that there is not only one way of doing things. We do not believe in experts, but in learning together by sharing our collective experience. We have seen that through opening the door for further exploration, new developments can occur. 'Mistakes' are simply opportunities for more learning."

He was in conversation with CNS Managing Editor and Executive Director Shobha Shukla, who is also the coordinator of Asia Pacific media network to end TB & tobacco, and prevent NCDs (APCAT Media).
