Amazing relationships and great opportunities for students in Sabah

Such a wonderful write up! Thank you for sharing this Professor Sandie! We are glad to have hosted both you and your students. It was such an honour to have you with us!


Associate Professor Sandie Suchet-Pearson has just got back from a fascinating trip to Sabah, Malaysia, working with PACOS Trust to extend existing research relationships for our third year geography students. She recounts the journey here:

From 15 years in the Malaysian military to bee-keeping and organic rice farming – what a fabulous story for me to hear on the banks of the Kadamian River, in the village of Tambatuon in Sabah, on the island of Borneo in Malaysia.

I was in Sabah for a 5 day trip with PACE International. As convenor of our third year capstone PACE unit GEOP380: Human Geography in Action, we were discussing research projects for our students to conduct with Indigenous communities. Our students come to Sabah for 4 weeks in September-October and are hosted by PACOS Trust, an amazing NGO which aims to enhance the ability of Indigenous organisations to act collectively on their own.
