Heritage Soci Camp - Sangiran
Description: Sangiran Museum is the only pre historic museum listed in UNESCO World Heritage sites in Indonesia. Sangiran area is a nationally protected cultural site of human evolutions during Pleistocene. The last 3 years GREAT has been cooperating with Sangiran Conservation Office (SCO) to organize international workcamps targeting local youth/ students to promote role of youth in preserving world heritage by creating students club called the Young Guardian Club Sangiran.
