There is no better place to study the interaction between society and tectonics than in Indonesia. Indonesia encompasses the most active tectonic environment on Earth, and is one of the world's most dynamic societies. This program provides ANU students with a unique opportunity to study both a society and tectonic environment that is vastly different from Australia's.

In 2018, students from ANU  helped to conduct a study that will improve earthquake preparedness on the Indonesian island of Lombok, the site of three major earthquakes. Data from the study will contribute to the improvement of building infrastructure and reduce earthquake vulnerability. Participating students were supported by the New Colombo Plan (NCP). In this video, they talk about their experiences.
