U.S students bringing new life to CERES cultural villages
CERES is very fortunate in working with students from Worchester Polytechnics Institute (WPI) in the United States. In the past few years, students have been coming down under to CERES as part of their internship, helping us with the development of a number of projects, including our Australia 2030 trail and the CERES Chook app
Over the last 7 weeks, four WPI students have been working with the Excursions team to develop a new and exciting interactive Indonesian Village Trail.
The main idea of the trail is to bring to the forefront environmental issues (both problems and solutions) of the countries represented in our cultural villages. The early design and prototype phase started by this group of students has set us on an exciting path of formally bringing together culture and environment in our education programs, all in the inspiring setting of the CERES Cultural villages.
The Education team are extremely grateful for all the incredible work these students have been doing. All on a voluntary basis no less!! Thank-you Cindy, Jon, Annie and Aryelle!!
We look forward to developing this exciting new program and can’t wait to share it with you all. Keep an eye out on the Sustainability Hub for updates!
In the meantime, check out our amazing cultural programs currently available for schools –
