2018 copy

 

Continuing the success of 2012 to 2017 Community and Technological (CommTECH) Camp, ITS International Office is introducing a new innovative program, CommTECH Camp Insight 2018. By compiling and building upon the testimonies of former participants, we decided to extend the program to 14 days in order to provide more interaction among participants and also enhance the learning experience. This program will be conducted on January 24 – February 6, 2017. Furthermore, the upcoming CommTECH Camp Insight 2018 will be presented as a Project based Learning (PbL) program. Groups will be formed among participants as a platform to help solve real life problems faced by the community. With an increased engagement between participants, facilitators, and the community, a more impactful experience will be achieved. It becomes even more attractive because at the end of the program, all participants will have an opportunity to present their project and ideas which were developed during the course of the program in front of a wider audience.

So, what are you waiting for? Mark your calendar and register now for this terrific program. Many experiences beyond your imagination await.

Sub Course C: Managing Sustainable Coastal Development

Coastal area is a transitional area between land and ocean which has a physical boundary. As the largest archipelago country in the world, Indonesia's coastal areas are very strategic with their comparative and competitive advantages that could be the deciding factor towards the national development. To optimize the use of marine and coastal resources, policy intervention through spatial planning, government handling, and cooperation between stakeholders including public and private sectors is required. In CommTECH Camp Insight 2018, this sub course will encourage the participants to discuss and simulate the management of coastal planning in this archipelago country. The highlights in this subject consist of Coastal Planning Policies, Integrated Coastal Zone Management (ICZM), Coastal Risk Management, and Coastal Tourism. This program is designed to suit bachelor, master, even doctoral students with or without specific knowledge in coastal development and planning.

Indonesia is a country that consists of thousands of islands. Those islands are home to many kinds of ethnics and cultural beliefs.
