The Mekong river, the 12th longest river in the world, drains an area of nearly 800,000 square kilometres. It is a region singularly rich in natural resources, biodiversity, environments, cultures and societies. The lives of about 60 million residents in six nation centres around the Mekong for food, water, transport and many other aspects of daily existence.

The "Sowing Seeds of Peace in the Mekong River Basin" project(SSPMRB) aims to inculcate a spirit of peace in students in high schools, colleges and universities. By engaging youth in meaningful discussions and activities, they can be convinced that global peace might have been a dream in previous generations but can be a reality now. An awareness of peaceful living will foster commitment to that goal. Sports, songs and arts are attractions to the youth, and, through these mediums, awareness of the benefits of peaceful living will be developed.
