Work: Mangkang has been the project site for IIWC’s World Tanabata Action since 2008. It is a global project initiated by NICE Japan then was adopted by CCIVS UNESCO in the beginning of 2008. These projects will be the eight and ninth projects organized by IIWC in answering the needs of preserving the coastal side of North Java Sea in Mangkang. This area is now in danger due to the abrasion of the sea, local factories cutting mangrove and heavy force from the river flows. Before, many kinds of fish and shrimps lived there, but now since the condition of the mangrove forest is getting worse, it is quite difficult to find the species anymore.

The aims of the camps are to help protect the sea shore, increase the awareness of the local people and the fisherman so they can protect their environment as well as their future.

Volunteers will be planting mangrove, and other trees for the beach, environmental education to local people and children, school visits for environmental education and Olympic Games for the environment.
