With reference to the article on development of area-based learning innovation through Miang culture to promote green citizenship for social studies teachers in the upper northern Thailand, the researcher expected to present a paradigm of area-based learning management that promotes green citizenship and a guideline to develop area-based education quality in the upper northern Thailand. The research brought experience from social studies implementation, on-site visit to Pa Miang community to integrate with learning activities leading to designing activities whose emphasis was placed on learners to use to adapt a paradigm shaped by an educational paradigm. The important goal is enhancing green citizenship by using the cultural context of Miang, an important native plant of communities located on high lands of the upper northern Thailand, as a base, and citizen power that accesses Miang cultural context in their areas to achieve sustainable learning. This paradigm shift focused on a participatory learning process by allowing learners to create body of knowledge through area-based learning instruments and activities to achieve “creative learning innovation” as pedagogical knowledge for developing global citizen to the future.

Keywords: Area-based Learning Innovation, Miang Culture, Green Citizenship, Social Studies
