BANGKOK EDGE  talks includes topics from global trends like smart city, waste reduction, cultural heritage preservation, the future of transportation, and international relations to local interests like Thai history, literature, the LGBT movement and environmental conservation. Both locals and international speakers are invited to share their thoughts on subjects of their expertise. Talks will take place at Rajini School and Museum Siam with talks on the Rajini Stage being translated live into Thai/English.
