Seluruh peserta asing dan beberapa peserta lokal (Indonesia) AOTULE 2019 diberikan fasilitas guest house (penginapan) yang sangat mendukung interaksi dan komunikasi antar peserta. Saat melaksanakan kegiatan di luar kampus pun, seluruh peserta mendapatkan fasilitas transportasi bus yang memungkinkan seluruh peserta saling berinteraksi satu sama lain. Hanya beberapa kali saja peserta menggunakan angkot dan minibus dalam berkegiatan, namun hal itu juga memberikan kesan yang luar biasa, terutama pada peserta asing yang baru pertama kali menggunakan moda transportasi angkot.

Setiap pagi, seluruh peserta yang menginap di guest house mendapatkan fasilitas makan pagi. Pada saat berkegiatan, seluruh peserta termasuk yang tidak menginap di guest house mendapatkan fasilitas makan siang dan beberapa kali makan malam saat kegiatan berlangsung hingga malam hari. Sementara, malam-malam lainnya saat tidak ada kegiatan, seluruh peserta dibebaskan untuk mencari makan sendiri yang juga sering dimanfaatkan peserta untuk menyicipi kuliner Kota Bandung bersama peserta lainnya. Selain makanan berat, peserta juga mendapatkan jatah makanan ringan (snack) hingga dua kali sehari pada saat berkegiatan.

Seluruh peserta AOTULE 2019 dibagi menjadi 10 kelompok untuk memberikan presentasi bertema sustainability di akhir masa summer program. Dalam presentasi tersebut, 10 kelompok dibagi lagi ke dalam tiga sub tema, yaitu sustainability-entrepreneurship, sustainability-tourism, dan sustainability-cultural. Materi presentasi bisa diambil dari aktivitas yang telah dilakukan selama pelaksanaan summer program. Selain menyampaikan presentasi, setiap kelompok juga diminta untuk mempersembahkan penampilan pada cultural night di hari terakhir summer program. Saat cultural night, peserta menampilkan kolaborasi budaya antar negara, mulai dari bernyanyi beberapa bahasa, menari tradisional, bermain musik tradisional, hingga bertukar pakaian daerah. Cultural night ditutup dengan pembacaan juara presentasi dan penobatan partisipan dan panitia menurut beberapa kriteria berdasarkan hasil kuesioner yang dibagikan sebelum pelaksanaan cultural night.

Dikutip dari tulisan akun Instagram shem_ayegba, salah satu peserta AOTULE 2019 yang berasal dari Hong Kong yang menuliskannya dalam Bahasa Inggris, “Mengikuti AOTULE Summer Program adalah pengalaman yang luar biasa. ITB berhasil menjadi tuan rumah dengan sangat baik. Saya berjumpa dengan orang-orang yang luar biasa, menjadi urutan teratas bagi saya dalam hal pengalaman”. Kiriman Instagram lainnya dari akun kimbob9318, peserta AOTULE 2019 dari Korea yang menuliskannya dalam kombinasi bahasa Inggris dan bahasa Korea, “Saya akan sangat merindukan kalian semua. Tujuh belas hari benar-benar berharga seperti mimpi. Terima kasih banyak”.

This year, AOTULE activity was attended by 43 students from 6 countries. Following is the list of AOTULE 2019 participants:

  • Institut Teknologi Bandung, Indonesia : 24 participants
  • National Taiwan University, Taiwan                         : 3 participants
  • National Cheng Kung University, Taiwan : 2 participants
  • National Chung Hsing University, Taiwan                         : 2 participants

  • Hanoi University of Science and Technology, Vietnam : 2 participants

All foreign participants and several local participants (Indonesian) AOTULE 2019 are given guest house facilities that strongly support interaction and communication between participants. When carrying out activities outside the campus, all participants get bus transportation facilities that allow all participants to interact each other. Only a few times the participants used ‘angkot’ and minibuses in their activities, but it also gave an extraordinary impression, especially to foreign participants who were using the traditional public transportation ‘angkot’ for the first time.

Every morning, all participants staying at the guest house get breakfast facilities. At the time of the activity, all participants including those who did not stay at the guest house received lunch facilities and several times dinner when the activity lasted until evening. Meanwhile, other nights when there is no activity, all participants are freed to find their own food which is also often used by participants to taste the culinary of Bandung with other participants. In addition to heavy food, participants also get a snack, up to two times a day during activities.

All AOTULE 2019 participants were divided into 10 groups to give a presentation about sustainability at the end of the summer program. In the presentation, the 10 groups were further divided into three sub-themes, there are sustainability-entrepreneurship, sustainability-tourism, and sustainability-cultural. Presentation material can be drawn from activities that have been carried out along the summer program. In addition, each group was also asked to present a performance on cultural night on the last day of the summer program. During cultural night, participants presented cultural collaborations between countries, ranging from singing several languages, dancing traditionally, playing traditional music, and exchanging regional clothes. Cultural night ends up with announcing the winner of the presentation and coronation of participants and the committee according to several criterias based on the results of the questionnaire distributed before cultural night.

Quoted from the Instagram account shem_ayegba, one of the AOTULE 2019 participants who came from Hong Kong, “AOTULE summer program, was an amazing experience. ITB did a wonderful job hosting. The awesome people I met, tops the list for me in terms of experience. “. Another Instagram post from the kimbob9318, AOTULE 2019 participant from Korea who wrote it in a combination of English and Korean, “I’m really gonna miss you everyone. 꿈을 꾼것만 같은 정말 소중한 17일이었다. 모두들 너무 고맙고, 앞으로 좋은 일들만 가득하기를 😂 (Seventeen days are truly as precious as dreams. Thank you very much)”.
