Borneo Initiatives Youth Camp (BIYC)
28 February – 1 March 2020
Creating a kinder world
Building on the success of the first Borneo Initiatives Youth Camp (BIYC) in 2018, Borneo Nature Foundation and Bina Cita Utama School will host another BIYC in 2020.
BIYC introduces young people to exciting and inspiring presenters who are involved in making the world a better place. Students have the chance to take away knowledge and experience that can help change the way the future will unfold.
BIYC brings together young people (13 to 17 years old) from across Asia to share ideas and create practical solutions for global issues. Students will work with exciting and inspiring workshop leaders who are involved in making the world a better place. Topics that will be tackled include human rights, education and literacy, environmental degradation and food security. The three-day Youth Camp consists of workshops, cultural experiences, discussion groups and excursions to local conservation and education projects. Plus the chance to see Bornean orangutans in their natural habitat!
BIYC offers the unique opportunity for cultural exchange and for participants to immerse themselves in the local indigenous culture. The Youth Camp is run in two languages; English and Bahasa Indonesia, and, with contributions from student fees, we support local children from underserved communities to participate in this event.
