French International School’s Six-day Experience with the Masarang Foundation


French International School Visit Tasikoki


In June this year, students from the French International School in Hong Kong visited the Masarang Foundation in Indonesia in order to further their studies in “Ecology & Second Territories”.

Prior to the trip, the students had been meeting weekly in Hong Kong to discuss the topic of Biodiversity. Focusing on the deforestation issues in Indonesia, they had been learning about the devastating impact of Palm Oil cultivation.

Their trip to Indonesia proved informative, insightful and educational.  The students have taken some time to reflect and have published their experiences in this journal, which we sincerely hope all would read (whether translation is needed or not)!

Visit their website to learn more about their trip which is packed with pictures and videos.
