Jakarta, 4 April 2017 – PT. NEC Indonesia (“NEC Indonesia”) announced today its participation in the NEC World Children’s Nature Club, held in Bogor City, West Java, 18 – 20 March 2017.
Aged 10 – 12 years old, ten children, combination of children of NEC employees and local villagers from National Park Halimun Salak Mountain, participated in the 3-day program.
Accompanied by NEC Indonesia staff, the children experienced various nature activities, such as visiting rice paddy fields and harvesting rice, planting and harvesting coffee seed, as well as arts and crafts, such as creating artwork using dried banana leaves.
