Knowing is essential. If someone knows himself, he will be able to lead himself and achieve his dreams. It inspires DHL Indonesia, an international logistics service provider, in cooperation with SOS Children's Villages Indonesia, inviting 30 teens and adults aged 15-22 years old. The participants were taught to identify themselves and build positive habits through activities called “Back to Nature”.

Taking place in Conservation Park Hunting, Mountain Masigit Kaerumbi, West Java, in October 2015. DHL Indonesia through its staffs of voluntary program "GoTeach" were encouraging the participants to make assessments or judgments about how they saw themselves and how much leadership they had to be able to lead themselves and analyze their capability in delivering aspirations. Meanwhile Back to Nature is a 2-day-program dedicated to strengthen the leadership skill and to promote eco-friendly behavior amongst the youth.

These programs provided a space for participants to build a caring attitude that could help protect the environment. This activity also involved group activities in order to explore the ability of participants to survive in a difficult situation. In addition, DHL volunteers participated in team building - and jungle survival class. Participants of SOS Children's Villages shared their knowledge about eco-friendly activities in daily life and how to live with the concept of Reduce, Recycle and Re -use.
