The 2015 ASEAN-Korea Youth network workshop  in the theme of youth is the force front of forestry conservation. It was my great opportunity to joined this program. During the workshop, I had found plenty of knowledge and experiences that I never had discover before.

It been almost ten days that I been In Korea (Soopchewon, Seoul) and Indonesia (Jakarta, Yogyakarta). However, in this workshop people who participated was come from different background , not all is majoring in forestry someone majoring in engineering, medical, politic..etc. So, the workshop provided the very valuable lecture to all participant in order to let them know about the importance of forestry because no matters what are you doing, the earth that you live is still rely on the nature especially forestry. Beside the knowledge from the lecture, I also learned from Korean friend tell me about the way that Korea change almost the mountainous area to become the green mountain nowadays. It so amazing. However, I had a chance to listen ministry of forestry and environmental of Indonesia answering my question about hydropower dam  in terms of forestry and environmental impact because my country is facing kind of this problem now. So, it was good to hear how Indonesia implemented on this issue. This moment was my chance to explore the new things and feel how other country are growing up.

When we talk about something that every participants always happy with it. It was a great experience about having new friends. Beside that this is a stage for ASEAN-Korean youth to talk about the problem or the issue that they are facing of. For me, this opportunity made me know a lot of perspective among new friend on many issue such as global warming, deforestation…etc. We discus, share experience , working as a team . Even someday, it seem to be very tired and hard in the workshop, we still get through that situation. Also, this strengthen the ASEAN-Korea friendship among the youth.  Moreover, it has been a amazing site seeing in both Korea and Indonesia such as research trip in Soopchewon, Seoul, Waganama demonstrated forest, Burobudur temple, Prambana temple. I can touch and feel a taste of the nature gave to us.

Along the workshop, at first it seems to be a short period of time for me and all participants. I can grain a lot knowledge and new experience . it was a memorable event to me. I will never forget the day that I have been participate and also, looking forward to have opportunity to join this kind of workshop again in the future.
