Heritage ambassador. Volunteers are to become heritage ambasadors to spread the message of heritage conservation to local people through daily life interaction and through article writing.



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. However, after a comprehensive evaluation, the SCO & GREAT found that the impact of existance of international volunteers in the area is more to the local people than to the students. This is because many students do not actually live in the pre-historic conservation area of Sangiran also students tend to move to other bigger cities once the graduate school.  While the need of socialisation and raising awareness of preserving finding of prehistoric fossils stays strong for the local society. From time to time SCO is doing raising awareness program for prevention against illegal trading of the fossils found by local people and for strengthen sense of belonging and preservation among local people and Indonesian public in general. This workcamp is expected to be a new method to achieve those aims.
