Students from the Bali International School (BIS) have issued a challenge to the community to take responsibility for its actions and do something to reduce of the island's carbon foot print.

"Practicing what they preach," the students have launched a number of Bali International School Carbon Offset Projects (BIS COPs) including a forest rehabilitation project to help reduce the dangers of greenhouse gasses.

Working with Friends of the National Park Foundation (FNPF), the BIS COPs recently set sail for nearby Nusa Penida to participate in a BIS Community Tree Planting Day. "We are doing this because we have recognized what we are doing to the resources of the world and that they are finite. We need to do something about it as soon as possible. This is the message we are trying to spread," said Rinaldhy Oosterman, a BIS COPs participant.

Planned to coincide with Indonesian National Day of Tree Planting on November 28, 2008, the tree planting took place on part of 100 hectares of degraded state land set aside for reforestation. The 150 trees planted by the group add to the 60,000 seedlings that the FNPF have already planted since 2005.

In their continuing commitment to be green the BIS COPs members plans to conduct additional tree plantings in the Sanur area of Bali. As Grade 12 student and BIS COPs member Carla Kersten puts it best, "it's great to get the opportunity to be hands on in an activity that has obvious benefits for the community.Ē

According to BIS teacher and Global Citizenship Program Coordinator Peter Muir: "This is one of many service learning projects planned and initiated by the students that fit in with the aims of the school's Global Citizenship Program. Such projects not only benefit the community, but also provide great learning opportunities to our students."
