It is expected that by the end of June 2016, training participants will have written and published articles in national media. Additionally, there will be a meeting between the Silvika Bulletin Editorial Team (produced by the HR Training Center of MoEF) and Harry Suryadi to receive inputs on how to improve the Silvika bulletin.
