Community-based Tourism Exploration in Bogor City

Mode: Physical

Delegates who attend the conference physically will be brought on a 3-hour exploration trip. They will not only visit Bogor Botanic Gardens (an important evidence in the historical development of science in Indonesia) but also engage in other types of community-based tourism activities.

Responsible Tourism Fieldwork (optional)

Mode: Physical

The 3-day-2-night fieldwork consists of a visit to Mount. Gede Pangrango National Park and the surrounding areas including engagement with the community members. Beside discussing responsible tourism during the conference, the fieldwork is a good avenue to put responsible tourism into practice and build connection and networking among the delegates and community.


As addition to our commitments to green investments, we will not provide notebooks, printed brochures or flyers, nor plastic bottled water for the delegates. Instead, each delegate will receive a conference kit comprising conference booklet and other information in a flash disk as well as a tumbler. Drinking water dispensers will be placed at convenient corners for delegates to refill their glasses or tumblers.

Social Events

The conference will include social events to maximize networking opportunities:

  • A designated area for networking during the conference

  • Booths displaying local products and services
