Faculty of Animal Science UGM successfully held The 7th Summer Course Program on 10 – 21 July 2023. Apart from being held offline, some participants can also take part in this activity online via Zoom. Carrying the theme Challenges and Opportunities for Livestock and Agricultural Production in Responding to the Issue of the Global Food Crisis, this year’s Summer Course was attended by 56 participants from countries in Asia, namely China, South Korea, Pakistan, Philippines, Thailand, Timor Leste, Afghanistan, Sudan, Vietnam, and Indonesia.
At the opening of The 7th Summer Course Program 2023 on Monday, 10 July 2023, the Dean Faculty of Animal Science UGM conveyed the importance of networking among students in Asia to spread the Asian Spirit. “The role of students in global issues such as food availability can be in the form of a network to share knowledge and experience in international activities. Apart from sharing experiences, cultural diversity is also one that the participants can show, with the spirit of ‘networking for a better future life’,” said Prof. Budi Guntoro.
The series of activities for the 2023 Summer Course program are divided into lectures, cultural activities, practicum, and field trip. This program also provides opportunities for participants to expand their networks, learn about culture in Yogyakarta, and allows participants to learn more about certain subjects or explore new areas of interest. Participants also enjoy a variety of experiences outside the classroom, such as learning traditional musical instruments and recreation at historical sites in Yogyakarta. (Secretariat/Prisil)
