Hello Fellas?!!
Don’t forget for today, to celebrate World Habitat Day ???? World Habitat Day is celebrated on the first Monday of October of every year to reflect on the state of our towns and cities, and on the basic right of all to adequate shelter. Each year, World Habitat Day takes on a new theme to bring attention to UN-Habitat’s mandate to promote sustainable development policies that ensure adequate shelter for all.

According to UN-Habitat, this year promoting the contribution of innovative frontier technologies to sustainable waste management to achieve Sustainable Development Goal 11: inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable cities. Going beyond solid waste this includes all waste produced by human activity (solid, liquid, domestic, industrial and commercial), which continues to have a devastating impact on climate change, public health and the environment ?‍??‍??‍??‍??‍♂️?‍??‍?☘? World Habitat Day was established to encourage people to work hard to improve housing situations around the world. The event helps people to see what they can do in order to make
society a stronger place that is capable of sheltering more people and giving everyone a chance to stay protected and safe from harm. ????? Thank you

IFSA Goes to Village: Get Closer to Nature

Children as the future of nation, have big role to conserve the nature. IGTV “Get Closer to Nature” was succesfully established at Kampung School last Sunday (27/11/2016). The participants are 20 children from Kampung Jawa, Situ Gede who had joined IGTVs every weekend. We learned so many things by the guidance of the best facilitators provided by Kampung School.

IGTV Get Closer to NatureThe activities started from garden. First we practiced how to make compost from leaves. After that we harvested vegetables, and then cooked it by ourselves. We served it on the table for a cooking competition. It was great for having meals that we harvested and cooked by our hands.

We got a lot of energy from our ‘meaningful lunch’. So we continued with playing traditional games. Guess what! It was ‘Egrang‘, a traditional game’s tools made by bamboo. The game was simple, we had to reach the finish line by Egrang. But it wasn’t a simple thing! We had to keep balance, even got helped by our friends to reach the finish. It was very fun. We kept playing even it was rain.

Our visit to Kampung School also be the last of IGTV in 2015/2016 period. Thank you for Kampung School and all the volunteers from IFSA LC IPB.

The reason why is because Kamigamo is really high of moisture because kamigami have a lot of the river and near from there. That’s why the root is appear on the ground to get the oxygen.

After we visited kamigamo, we went to Kitayama-sugi. Kitayama is a center utilizes a lavish amount of Kitayama Maruta and other woods of Kyoto origin for construction and interior materials. In Kitayama, we learnt about how to clean sugi from its skin after it cuts. They still use a traditional way to clean the skin of sugi, they think that is the best way to keep the quality of sugi.
