The Work Camp Exchange Indonesia: Conserve The River, Preserve Your Future
The work camp exchange topic in Indonesia is “Conserve The River, Preserve Your Future”. By youth exchange methodology, we will have non-formal activities to exchange knowledge regarding ecological problems, also trash management in participants’ countries. Furthermore, to share their knowledge and contribution in local communities on how to reuse the cow dung to produce organic compost. Additionally, there will be a trash hike with society and experience intercultural exchange. On the other hand, all the work camp exchangers will also have the chance to get our hands on the field in order to practically learning deeper into that topic.
