Indonesia Postgraduate Network (IPN) Start-of-Year Welcome Picnic
On March 11th, the Indonesia Postgraduate Network (IPN), with the support of the Indonesia Forum, carried out its inaugural in-person event with its Start-of-Year Welcome Picnic. The Picnic was held at the north end of Carlton Gardens and was complemented by the excellent weather. More than fifty postgraduate students studying Indonesia attended and enjoyed some light nibbles and engaging discussions. Postgrads in attendance came from various backgrounds, such as academia, the public and private sectors. Many came from UI and UGM, showing the close ties between Unimelb and our Indonesian partners. Students were enthusiastic about the IPN, and pitched many interesting ideas for future events.
