Joining in PARE summer school we were participate in group discussions based on river case in each country such as Citarum river (Indonesia), Cho Praya River (Thailand), and Ishikari river (Japan). The course in the class are delivered by lectures and expert from Japan, Indonesia, Thailand, and Netherlands. After lecture finish, we expressed any opinion base on our knowledge in such group discussion and presented in front of the class. We were happy becouse one of them is our lecture J
