After the success in the last GSLDT. This year, again, we held the 4th annual geoscience students leadership and development training (GSLDT). The theme of this year’s GSLDT is “Making the Future Geoscientists Knowledgeable in Science with the Spirit of Kinship to Generate Personal Character”.
Leadership includes the ability of a person to determine the goals of an event, committee, or organization. A good leader is the person who led his followers to cooperate in order to achieve their goal for the good of his followers. Strong leadership skill on students would help students in problem solving and entering industry where currently the industry is not only qualifying good intelligence but also leadership skill.
The objective of this activity are:
-Improving the quality of Indonesian geosciences students.
-Developing leadership qualities in preparation to face the industrial world.
-Encouraging the growth of Student Chapter AAPG Western Regional
