PHT Talks is happening again. In 2004, Phimai old town was nominated into the tentative list of the Unesco World Heritage Sites. This led to conflicts between the local community and the government on land use and the eventual establishment of the Phimai Heritage Trust. Dr Rungsima Kullapat of the Phimai Heritage Trust is here to share the stories of how the trust was born and became a tool that protected the interest of the local community in heritage planning and management issues.
