On January 7th 2021 the Institut Petanian Bogor university held a very special event. The International Association of students in Agricultural and related Sciences (IAAS) hosted their Conversation Club goes to External online seminar (IGTE). Their events  are aimed at gathering and sharing relevant knowledge and encouraging discussion, all in English. Again, this time the event has done just that!

Organised by the students for the students, the limited capacity of 101 seats had been filled in an instant. Our director and senior counselor Sasja Breit had been invited by the IAAS as a guest speaker to share his expertise related to this event’s topic: “Ecotherapy: How nature improves mental health”. Representing the embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, with whom the IAAS has a close relationship, Sasja held a presentation on how to cope and remain mentally healthy during the Covid-19 pandemic.

From everyone at Pondok Indah International Counseling, we would like to express our sincere appreciation for the opportunity and all of the hard work that the IAAS and the Dutch embassy have put in to making this event a great success. We look forward to our continued collaboration with both inspirational institutes.
