Eco-Z camp, a three-day environmental workshop for Indonesian high school students in Mamuju, helps students identify and propose solutions to environmental problems within their schools. Indonesian Young Southeast Asian Leaders Initiative (YSEALI) alumnus Rifai Sahida recently brought students to a local recycling facility to teach them about recycling. Sahida, fellow Indonesian YSEALI alumnus Inci Dharmawan, and Thai YSEALI alumnus Katitep Ngamket conducted the workshop for 40 participants, Dec. 17-20, 2019. The University of Montana, which hosted Sahida throughout his YSEALI fellowship, provided a small grant for the program. Participants worked with mentors to learn how to run scientific experiments, conduct advocacy campaigns, and implement project management techniques.
