This week six Indonesians were welcomed to the HOT project. These six university-aged Indonesians will be trained to teach OSM to government officials, teachers and students throughout the country (you can see all of the training material at LearnOSM). Under Va and Kate, three new trainers will be travelling to Kupang (East Nusa Tenggara), Makassar (South Sulawesi), and Manokwari (Papua) to teach the workshops. The other team, under the leadership of Emir and Joseph, will head to Padang (South Sumatra), Surabaya (East Java) and Bandung (West Java).
Adityo, Dewi, Harry, Ranie, and Wulansari are studying or have graduated from University of Indonesia in Jakarta, while Elida is pursuing a Master's in Coastal and Watershed Planning at Gajah Mada University in Yogyakarta. They all studied geography at their respected universities. They are excited to meet new people, share geographic knowledge and teach other people how to map.
