Trip Summary

Building on the success of the 2016 and 2017 KIS Jeju Service Adventures to Guam, the 2019 departure will provide opportunities to learn about the traditional Chamorro culture and history, develop new skills, make new friends and learn through practical application how an island community is building resilience against the effects of climate change and taking action to address local environmental threats. This itinerary provides students with the opportunity to get up close and personal with the varied geographical land forms whilst also learning about the countries unique indigenous culture and more recent WWII history.

Partnering with the Centre for Island Sustainability at the University of Guam we work alongside a traditional coastal community called Humåtak which is located on a wide calm bay fringed with reefs and in the shadows of some of the island’s highest mountains. During our time at Humåtak we will receive lessons about the watershed and the needs and threats to coral, we will take a tour of the watershed from the mountain down to the sea, where students can see all the environmental connections in between and we will mould seed sling stones in order to help with watershed restorations efforts. This experience provides opportunity for cultural immersion and showcases how communities need to work together to protect the environment.
