Yogyakarta - Gadjah Mada University in Yogyakarta will be holding an International Students Summer Program in Yogyakarta themed "Dream 2012" from July 1 to 4, 2012.
"Dream this year will have a theme `Alternative Education` in accordance with the dedication of the people of the vision of Gadjah Mada University (UGM)," UGM international affairs office chief Rio Rini Diah Moehkardi said in Yogyakarta Monday.
She said alternative education has been practiced in many parts in Indonesia and in other countries to complement the shortcomings of conventional education which is usually based on community participation and environmental consciousness.
She also said that Dream 2012 will be held for two weeks, during which the participants will follow lectures, tutorials, short internship, and community services.
"In the programs, artists cum natural school founder Kandank Jurank Doank, Dik Doank, will also become the speaker," she said.
She said the Dream participants will also be invited to learn in the field by short internships to several institutions and organizations in Yogyakarta like SD Mangunan, SD Tumbuh, Mualimin Islamic Schools, Yakkum, Sukunan Bersemi Community, Cemara Community, and Kampung Halaman Foundation.
The participants will also be given the opportunity to get closer to local communities by following National Student Service Scheme (KKN) in Wukirsari village, Imogiri, Bantul, and Yogyakarta Special Region (DIY).
"To get closer to culture and tourism in Yogyakarta, the participants will also be invited to visit tourism objects and a cultural workshop like making "bakpia" (kind of cake) and batik," she said.
She added the Dream program is followed by students, both local and international strata one (S1) students. Registration for the program will be closed on April 15, 2012, and the conditions for Dream 2012 participants can be seen at dream.ugm.ac.id or http://oia.ugm.ac.id/dream.
