Environmental issues are becoming increasingly important on the global scale, yet are often only considered as local or national issues. The goal of this project, sponsored by CERES Community Environment Park, was to promote environmental and cross-cultural awareness through the creation of an interactive exhibit for the CERES Indonesian cultural village. Information on Indonesian environmental issues was gained through surveying the general public and roundtable discussions with Indonesian university students. An interactive, family-oriented exhibit, focused on land issues, was then prototyped and tested. Finally, a series of recommendations for the completion of the Indonesian exhibit, as well as the future development of the CERES cultural villages, were created.
